    (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.

    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...

    Tennesse vs South Carolina

    100% absolutely correct Mr T....RD went into another worldly place... And Rae, was Rae...that's my kind of player...Geno would have made her a superstar. SC had zero answers for such a scoring outburst that Rennia posed. Better against them then against us.

    Sump'ting though...I daresay, it will knock them out of 2nd in the polls... down to 4th or 5th.

    Tennesse vs South Carolina

    I was watching the game; SC was comfortably ahead and looked like so much the better team As the 2nd half started, to my mind (and especially with UTenn's rep for folding in the 4th quarter) early garbage-time was soon to emerge. So I turned it off... What do I know?

    UConn women will likely earn the No. 1 ranking in Monday’s Associated Press poll, but are they actually the best team in the country?

    The totality of the expert's opinions is convincing Carl A who follows the team, notes that Paige needs help for the team to prevail. The one thing not completely discussed is: that it is quite likely that Paige will get that help.. -It could come from E; who (seemingly) has been overwhelmed by...

    Geno's Frustrations

    When I saw the title of the OP...I figured it related to Geno's fascinating answer to a query of what in what direction he sees the team going; Where're we going, I don't know..We played today, we played kinda just half-assed in a lot of ways, we figured out a way to win the game...We do so...

    Listening to Geno's postgame, I was struck by his remark about CW when asked if has spoken to her...

    I am happily reminded of a song in the 1962 Broadway production, She Loves Me...my all time favorite show...There is a song called "Perspective" in which Sipos, a middle-age slob, explains why he has been able to retain his position in a fancy perfumery: Call me fool, That's alright with me...

    One additional point I forgot to make (above) Both teams played on the 15th. -The Seton Hall kids (allegedly) had a long bus ride back from Milwaukee. -The UConn kids were (perhaps) mentally exhausted from their last minute heroics at Gampal...but got got to sleep in their own beds. Result...
