    Geno said this in the post game press conference. Not serious, just being cautious. Something to do with her foot. Geno said Crystal played great tonight.

    Yeah was wondering the same thing. Maybe in practice and the game aggravated it?

    I was there. Didn't see anything happen. Must have just gone to the sideline. Had to be very near the end of the game. She was in most of the 2nd half.

    I thought she looked a little gimpy at times.

    IIRC, Geno shut down Morgan for a couple of games before the South Carolina game last year.

    Wonder if it's a stress reaction.

    How about that 360 by the dangerous one while driving for a layup in the 4th quarter. Spectacular!

    I do believe this is what the bench thought of it:

    Wonder what UCF thought of it. :eek:

    Guess now we know why Geno needs some guards to step up.

    Maybe, or maybe a sprain that just isn't getting better. She played the whole 4th quarter and was dribbling ball as the clock ran down to zero, so obviously she was able to play with whatever it was.

    A bummer for Crystal. This is the time when she could have gained valuable game experience. Get well, Crystal, your best is yet to come.

    I was watching ND's last game and Ms. Young made the exact same move in the exact same place towards the end of the game, and I thought, 'crap'.

    I feel better after CD3's stunning move tonight.

    Geno speculates in his post-game presser that Crystal knew she wasn't going to be playing for a while, so "she played."

    That's usually what things like this are. Only thing you can do is rest. Good time for it. Hopefully this will help Bent with some run time.

    The sheer smoothness and effortlessness of the move were as stunning to me as the quality of its execution....! She did it almost as if to say, "Ho hum. I guess I'll throw you guys a little morsel before I check out. Best not forget about me."

    And of course she made the basket - the fates would never let a move like that go unrewarded!

    That is confusing. If you know that a player needs to rest why play her in a game at all and not start resting her immediately.

    Possibly because her high school class mate and friend plays for South Florida?

    They knew whatever she has, existed and was bothering her, and they were waiting to see how it responded in the game - the answer was 'not well' so whatever had been done up to the game was not enough. The next option is shut her down and hope it responds and the issue disappears. Specific to the game, maybe they adjusted her shoe or the way they taped her up, or what insert was added, or ... in the hope it would relieve the issue. Obviously it is something that is not going to be aggravated specifically by playing in the game to the point of further damage, but they decided it also wasn't going to get better without rest.
