Background:

Holy Cross lost by 80 last year, 117-37, as Tiffany put up 30 points by halftime.

HC's leading scorer is out with an injury.

Caroline will be starting, and Kaleena is 100% healthy.

Geno was happy with practices the last two days, after being rather disgusted after Wednesday's game.

All of this spells big trouble for Holy Cross. I think the 80-point margin may be too big to be matched, but I fully expect a margin of 50+. Our kids will be focused and playing hard. I'm guessing about 100-40.

112-36 (OC) Steff, Tiffany, and KML will all score 20+

As long as Uconn takes care of the ball, triple figures is attainable. If they're a bit sloppy, 85-45.

The bench will get major minutes in this game. Wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of bench players score 10 or more.

I'll predict we win, less interested in the score, more interested in how we play after being at the pace game.

I want to see the ladies more cohesive as a team. Caroline as a HEALTHY leader will certainly make a difference. Looking forward to seeing her on the court. Cant wait for the game.

With Caroline and Kaleena in the lineup, the offense will be much better coordinated and more efficient. I also expect more aggressive defense.

i'm gonna say 92-35

i'm thinking they are better than either of the Div II schools we played, but with CD and Kaleena back in the lineup, i think we pass 80 by a good margin, even if he plays the reserve (considering KML, Breanna, and Kiah are all subs!)

I can't resist. Sorry. I guess we need a change of Pace.:rolleyes:

I wonder who will start and who will be first off the bench.

I like our chances.

I will say 88-30. Holy Cross will be playing without their best player who is out with an injury. UCONN's bench will play well because they all need to prove themselves for playing time. I can't wait for the game. I want to leave now and go sit in my seat!!

GO UCONN

Geno said Caroline will start. How special is it going to be to hear her name announced and watch her jump off the bench and join her teammates on the court. I think I'll shed some tears of joy!

This is going to be very ugly and over early. UConn 97 HC 33

I agree with Tony--ugly and over early, very early. Some time before the 10-minute mark.

I agree with Cat--a huge ovation for Captain Doty!

Not that I am aware of. I assume at least Caroline and Tiffany, as both were captains last year. Is Kelly a captain too?
