We've made 8 three's...will beat about any team....can we keep up the shooting?  That was the best half we've had in a couple of years


Duke has a squad full of excellent shooters.  We will have to match them shot for shot (we have so far), and cut down on our turnovers...and rely on them to turn the ball over.


Don't foul them...they can shoot FT's

A turnover by Duke loses the game for them.


Absolutely awesome game NU !!!



Yeah, but we didn't exactly play smart at the end. BUT IT IS A WIN BABY!!!!!! Kissinger shot duke out of the zone that they were playing. Guess Kissinger has the rust knocked off.

Dewkwfan:    NICE  :Confused:   Someone else Did comment that there were a 'Lotta people in the stands.'



That P.O.S. coach lost us that game. Wasted 3 time outs (2:16, 1:27 & :37) all 3 were terrible attempts at clock management.

Let’s talk about lessons learned: down 2 with :11.5 seconds on the clock. First, HAVE YOU EVER PRACTICED THIS SCENARIO? You have a true PG in Kyra on the floor, yet go to Odom to push it.. who turns it over on a travel in the paint with 5 seconds remaining. Makes no sense to have Kyra on the floor if you’re not gonna use her effectively (they stayed away from her on the perimeter and clogged the lane with the extra body). If you wanted Odom to have the ball, add a 3 point threat to spread the floor and bam, the lane would be open and the game would be tied.

MAKES NO F*ING SENSE! No more excuses. She is a trash coach.

It was actually a very good offensive game for too many turnovers or HG2 & Odom (another reason not to have the ball in her hands down 2 with seconds remaining). But very impressed with OAJ - she didn’t play enough minutes.




Our 5th most talented player more talented than their most talented player.
