Because who else would have the guts to do this? Gotta LOVE Jamelle Elliot!

First let me say I don't have a problem with Aubrey getting the BA award. But I do have an open question for all of the BY'ers out there: just what exactly does Paige need to do to be considered a BA? Is she a victim of her own success, i.e. so what, she's supposed to do that every game. Do you realize we haven't seen anything like this since DT

Totally agree with you about Paige. She is a "Tremendous Talent" and will be one of the all time greats, once she has finished her career at UCONN. She had a very very good game today (and in most game, she would have definitely deserved the BY B-A POG Award. But today, Aubrey's play, coming in off the bench, was truly the BY B-A POG Winner (Not Coach Jamelle, as the original poster, said - By having the original poster, having this as the Lead-In, simply is making a JOKE out of the Boneyard BADASS Player of the Game, and really disrespects the honor. - Sorry, but just my feelings [I feel horrible for AG, and bad for Paige, having her read the award and who it went out to today}

Apologies (Sort of). That's why I deliberately didn't title it "Badass player OTG" - I just wanted to jump in and have some fun becuase of JJ's rare act of bravery with coach. . Plenty of room for an "official" selection thread 😆

The badass of the game has to be Paige for doing this


Geno is getting more irascible. There goes his new years resolution to enjoy the good things more. :rolleyes:

Give it a break. You've made the same point 4 times in the first 10 posts. And I wouldn't spend too much time worrying about what Aubrey or Paige thinks about the original post. I'm pretty certain that they could care less. Finally, the suggestion that the Boneyard Badass Award is an "honor" that can be "disrespected" is a category error. It is just a lighthearted thing that some Boneyarders engage in after each game.

Whomever the badass award goes to, my favorite moment of the game was seeing AG hit a 15 footer. I mean c'mon. Hadn't we all waited long enough?

Her shooting form is not bad. And her FT form is excellent and much better than freshman year. Clearly, she has been working on that aspect of her game. For a kid getting so many ORebs, making your FT's is critical if you want to stay on the floor.

Happy both Sophomores had games they can be proud of.

I agree 100%. Paige has been the best player on the floor for UCONN the entire season. Perhaps there should be an award - "The next most impactful player of the game besides Paige", because frankly, almost any game you don't give POG to Paige is just untrue.

So maybe the "surprise player/contributor of the game"? Paige is hands down #1 and will probably not only be the best UCONN player on the floor every single game, but also probably have the best stats. So...

Player of the game - EASILY Paige Bueckers.

Paige had another terrific game. But I was most excited by Aubrey today, because it was like watching a big piece of the team puzzle snap into place. She knew what to do, how to do it, and was effective and consistent. So fun to watch too. :)

ONO is our most feared player. That is why she is double or triple teamed most games. If ONO had single coverage, she would drop 30 every night. Meghan Culmo has exhorted several times this year that ONO should have a "field day". Yeah Paige is good, but not as feared by opponents as ONO is, eh?
