Thanks @Bugeaters1!!!  :nod:   (I think all of us may be a little distracted with the Women's Volleyball team advancing to the NCAA Finals and the drought in basketball games this week.)

 

That is a good scouting report.  :Bow:  Enough to give us some pause!  Denver is now 9-3 with a high-powered offense averaging 83.9 points and 9.5 threes per game on 40.8 percent three-point shooting.  DU has four players averaging double figures, led by Junior Lauren Loven.   This could be a difficult game, especially their coming off a close 66-64 loss.

Bugs even though I don't post a lot I for one appreciate the effort you put forth in doing the scouts and in your observations about the team.  ;)

Ditto for me, Bugs.  I look several times a day, to see if anything new has been posted.  Your efforts do not go unnoticed.  Thanks.

I don't believe the Denver coach is Maddie's uncle.  Marie's grandmother is married to Bob Tuergeon, father of the Denver coach and also Mark Tuergeon, the Maryland d coach.  Bob is Maddie's grandmother's second husband.  Bob is not Maddie's blood grandfather.

In today's program it mentions that Jim Turton is mattie's uncle. That info could be fake though.

The Omaha World Herald see's it differently'......

 

Omaha World Herald today....

 

Denver scouting report: There are plenty of connections that bring the Pioneers to Lincoln. Coach Jim Turgeon knows Nebraska coach Amy Williams from his days as Iowa Western’s coach, but more specifically, he’s the uncle of Husker forward Maddie Simon. Her grandfather, Bob, lives in Lincoln and is Jim’s dad. Jim Turgeon is in his second year at Denver,

Coach Amy confirmed in her pre-game interview that Kirsten Hudson was out for the season.  Said she had surgery on her foot.  They will try to see if they can get a waiver preserving her eligibility next year.

Playing much smoother as a team. Everyone seems to be on same page.

 

Lighting up the score board. 31 pts at the 1st qtr

 

Still to many turnovers, but really getting it done defensively. Denver may have some fouling out before it's all said and done.

Husker Ladies lead 31-19 at the end of one!  (with 4.6 sec left Sam Haiby runs the length of the court to score.  Matt:  "Sam Haiby gets to the rim more than anyone who changes Tires!"

Stats show we have 12 assists in 1st half.  That's a big deal in the scheme of things.

 

Shooting 50%...but 30 at 3's.  84% free throws   Those are also very nice stats. Turnovers improved somewhat in the 2nd qtr.

 

Will still have to maintain our edge...Denver can score, We're winning the track meet thus far....but need to keep up the pace. 

 

If Denver starts fouling out...it's probably over.

Looks like we may foul out before Denver does.

Bugs, I haven't posted in quite a while but I do  appreciate your time and effort on the women's side.  I'm always checking to see what's new. I like that the women have cut down on the turnovers. Much of the season it's felt like I was watching a 7th grade game with all the silly turnovers. In my opinion, Whitish has been the biggest disappointment this year.  I'm hoping she will be able to step up her game and give us more points than she has with all her playing time.  I'm really impressed with the freshmen girls, especially Vanderbeek.
