    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.

    I couldn't watch the game. How did she injure her foot?

    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.
