    (OT) What's been your reaction to Covid-19 vaccine ?

    MODERNA 1 last month, less effect than a flu shot, virtually nada Today: 2nd shot...bit of a sore arm; just a hint of a chill at dinnetime....this evening almost nothing.

    Creighton Postgame Thread

    I'e been in support of the theory that Paige is slightly injured and it doesn't take much to throw off your shot...then you overcompensate and good things do not happen. With E, the problem is more pronounced and (among other things), her long range shooting has gone South. I expect (hope) that...

    Play of the Game - UConn vs Creighton

    We've had a grand total of one of these beauts in the last two games. One by Liv and now one by Aaliyah. If we can get it up to two or three (dare I hope for more) We are a formidable option for the Natty In my view, it works equally well when the D sloughs off or plays too tight. No...

    Creighton Postgame Thread

    I think in some respects the team moved backwards today ...or at least not forward. There certainly were high points but all in all it was not a performance that would prevail in the late stages of the NCAA's Things that concerned me... - For the upteenth time, E landed awkwardly and aggravated...

    STOPPER

    Geno has always understood the yard-stick for measuring the team's progress, irrespective of the relative feebleness of the opposition. I've heard him say many times ...after a blow-out against an inferior team..."if we play like this...it doesn't matter who the competition is." Now, i'm not...

    STOPPER

    At the press availability, Geno noted the improvement in the defense and noted that he had simplified it so that it could be more easily comprehended by his young players. Regardless of the simplicity or sophistication, there is no doubt that D has improved and that rather than one or 2...

    Geno Focuses On His Frontcourt Duo

    If she is unguarded at the high post...dribble slowly towards the hoop and when they come up to guard, flash by...like she did in the Xavier game. Every defense has an offensive counter.

    Strange Head in Yahoo Sports

    UConn Huskies still atop AP women's basketball poll; NC State Wolfpack back at No. 2 Seems like they're surprised? bemused? Really off the reservation Like we haven't earned it...or not tossed it like other teams?

    Louisville lost today...so did Tenn.

    UCLA at #8 about to join the hit parade. UTenn was pretty miserable today according to their fans (who should know)

    ESPN's latest WNBA Mock Draft has Evina going #12

    As usual, my views are to the contrary of the majority.. I think its likely that E will stay. Clearly, the diminishment of her offensive accomplishment, this month, has to do with physical discomfort...and will effect her value in the W. A summer of (free) physical therapy, might be just what...

    Play of the Game - UConn vs Xavier

    On the game thread I noted (now nominate) Olivia's drive to the rim in the first quarter... The football passes we expect...perhaps not quite as brilliant as the two completions today. But that 80-ton locomotive lumbering to the basket will put fear in our opponent's hearts.

    Xavier Postgame Thread

    A few thoughts: -the most significant play of the game for me was Olivia driving to the basket from the outside...wonderful. Stewie was incomparable at that...I always wanted Kiah to develop that; never did. If Olivia and Aaliyah put that regularly into their rep, the will be unstoppable...

    Doesn't work for me... Northern Vt, up by the Canadian border is in the no fly-no drive- no view zone.
