  1. Starting bigs 22 min. 2 boards 32 min. 0 points That is a unacceptable inside game production wise. Couple that with the turnovers and it's pretty tough to win on the road. Best dial up the physicality in practice.
  2. Too many TO's and our bigs let the Rutgers physicality intimidate them. 17 TOs way too big of a number and our starting bigs did not see the charity stripe once. That being said, save the last 30sec of the 2nd and the entire third quarter, we played as well as I could have hoped for.
  3. Too many turnovers and we really need to get Miss Cain contributing. Love what we are doing on the boards.
  4. You're quite correct. Hopefully it's spring board for the next 4 which will be our most important 4 game stretch. 4 rpi top 50's 3 of which will be teams we play only once. In other words, if were dancing it'll ne playing for seating.
  5. In truth I hope so the board is mostly supportive. Anything game related is fair game, if criticism constructive it's usually appreciated. Really back a few decades when I competed, the only thing I couldn't stand was being patronized when I performed poorly. Personal attacks not game related are best kept to yourself.
  6. I missed the game due to J-O-B interference. To bad cause it sounds like they played well. They must have played particularly well on defence cause I expected Minny to score in the 70's. We should get another nice rpi boost out this. The season has really just begun, but 2-1 is a reasonable start.
  7. Should be a good tight entertaining game probably 1 or 2 possessions either way.
  8. Lot's to unpack with this game. We won quarters 2,3&4 because we started attacking the glass. Most particularly the offensive glass in the second half. They dominated the glass in q1. Iowa's point guard sitting had no bearing on the game. We stretched the lead from 3 to 11 with her in. Add to that little miss flop got to the line 3 times on clean stuffings and a forth ( I admit Kate hit her arm, but she did jump in to Kate). 6 of her points were officiating gifts. Now to are side, I thought Kate did a great job most notably getting back in transition. She did much better with that than I expected. That's why she gets my game ball. Nicea was the next closest with the stout d. We got contributions from unexpected sources which is most welcome, as Miss Brown and Miss Verbeek had relatively quiet nights for them. Finally Miss Bourne wow does she have some athleticism. We need her to aggressive up more frequently. The officiating OMG. Teams get full time outs for a shoe lace AYKM. Other than the inconsistency on calls, the rewarding of flops and do we know what a walk is. All in all good win. GBR
  9. Sorry guys was trying to clear old post and accidentally resent it. I wanted to give Grace a shout out for coming up big in the OT.
  10. Did not get to see the game. Listened to it on the radio and I have a few take aways. Loved the way Hannah picked up her game on defensive end. Career high five take aways ( nicely played). The way the two sophs. took over the game offensively, awesome cause those are the two we should want taking over. In truth with Nicea out, when they took the lead, I thought we were going to lose. Our mental toughness is at a much higher level this year. Finally, huge win they are going to be atop 50 rpi team and we won in their house.

  12. Had 3 general take aways. 1) switching much better on d 2) Kate Cain is actually moving her feet on d and doing it well I might add. 3) have no idea what the offensive game plan. To many people doing to many different things. No focal point, no bread and butter go to and finally no go to player. Luckily we have full season to iron it out.
  13. I looked everything over and have us number 5 in league behind Maryland, Ohio State, Minnesota and Rutgers. May be wishful thinking, but I think we'll be in the dance.
  14. With minnesota, ohio state and maryland still to come, that put us 9 at best in the league. Sure these pundits are wrong.
