    Concern going into Tournament play

    With Nova losing Gillespie and Creighton and McDermott having issues, we have as good a chance as anybody to with the BET. Winning and getting more experience for the NCAA is the biggest opportunity- that and another title.

    UConn @ Conway S. Carolina (3/5 v. Miami (OH) @ Noon, 3/6 v. Davidson College @ 10:30a, 3/7 v. Coastal Carolina @ 3p & 3/8 v. Coastal Carolina @ Noon)

    3rd trip this season- time for guys to settle in. Is it too early to match Casparius vs Coastal as opposed to starting today?

    I have been a fan of Matt's since we brought him in. I like the fact that he is getting an opportunity to speak for the program.

    Gillespie with a nasty knee injury

    The key moving forward in the BET for Nova is how do they handle on ball pressure. He is their point guard per se. If we get them in the finals, I like our chances without him.

    For Uconn to go deep into NCAA tournament...

    The comparison and level to me for ONO to be very effective is Jessica Moore. Similar build, really ran the floor well and held her own in the post. If she plays like Moore, we will be very difficult to beat.

    I agree- but what has been missing has been the big key hit- we had 14 hits yesterday - one big two out hit or someone hitting a homer with 2 on has been the difference between winning and losing.

    Is Donny A Jack***?

    Tim Brando is the pros pro. He is so good and has been for many years. He can work with anybody. I am not in love with Donny's thoughts on certain topics(play AJ as much as possible), but he is soo much better than most of the color commentators today.

    We need the clutch hit to put up some crooked numbers. That will happen soon I hope. We are close but just need to get over the hump.

    We need that big hit to break things open. Hasn't happened through the first 4 1/3 games!

    So, tell me what your eyes told you when you watched practice since September. I wasn't allowed in, were you? So, to make a statement based on November 2018 and not seeing the d line and ends for over a year, that makes you a realist? A realist sees and calls it for what it is. What you...

    Has a Late Season Transformation Already Happened?

    The season ultimately rides or dies with how ONO and CW play against an elite opponent. I think that Geno hit on a masterstroke by adding to their games- ONO passing and CW penetrating and playing in the passing lanes. Building on those successes will help the rest of their game in an Elite 8...

    Man - I wish there were more conversation around the depth at OL and LB. I am concerned about the depth at OL and thought we were light at LB to start with without the Ganyi Achilles.

    What ever happened with the proposal last year to start a month later and help cut out the travel to warmer climates?

    Hurley wore out his own team

    It was Bouk who was fatigued. 2nd game after being back- his legs weren't under him in the 2nd half. Not the whole team. The gang couldn't shoot straight from the opening tip - Martin, Cole, Whaley, Jackson. It had nothing to do with fatigue- it was an off shooting game.

    Jones said Wang was the opener- Peterson had the starter job until a bad outing in a scrimmage last week. They didn't want to stress him so they started with Wang who was going to get 1 time through the order.

    Hurley wore out his own team

    If our 3's were going in, no one would be saying we looked tired. We didn't look tired, they were grinding but couldn't get the ball to drop.

    Love the Whaley pushups

    He did more pushups after that sequence than he had minutes in his sophomore year!!

    2021 expectations

    I think we get at least 5. My expectation is a bigger, stronger and faster team. One that is more mature than we have put out in years. I am concerned about the O line because of defections and I want to see improved play at QB. We have good skill players and as long as the O line holds up...

    Refs and Announcers

    This was a missed opportunity by Fox to show that they care about women's basketball. Instead of McNutt talking about nothing, replay the screens and show what the foul was. Don't say - my dad was a ref so I won't say anything bad about them.

    UConn vs South Carolina - Game Analysis

    Lately ONO has been shooting a lot from the outside - if Boston is covering her- this is the design to keep her away from the boards. The key is for Liv to hit a few outside shots to get Boston away from the basket. Defensively, you could see zone from UConn to limit Boston and force SC to...

    I have no problems with our broadcast crew. Most women's basketball programs wish they could have a broadcast crew. My only complaint is graphics- I would love to see the foul situation with the running score. Other than that, I am happy with the broadcast product.

    Hurley Costs Us Another Game. Will the reporters ask some tough questions?

    Here is where Hurley showed he needs to grow as an in game coach. Besides the opening 5 minutes, with under 2 minutes left in the game, he made defensive replacements to stop Sh which worked. It took the offense the full shot clock to get a layup for Sanogo with a little over a minutes to go...

    Did it ever occur to some here that Randy didn't need the money? He didn't come here for the money- he was employed and had banked enough to retire. He came back because he had built this thing from scratch and a horrible hire and 1 even worse than horrible hire killed what he built. He was...
