Predicting what the NCAA will do is never a good idea. But this seems similar to Provo w/ something like 10 games one season and 13 another, she got an extra year of eligibility. 6 games as a Fr. and 21 as a soph for Wilson....but again, never know what the NCAA will do, even when two cases look similar they will have differing rulings.Stanford has an opening next year. Anna would need a wavier to get another year of eligibility because she played in the second half of the season. She had two separate injuries that limited her to only 6 games, which isn't what the injury redshirt rule contemplates.
This was an amazing day. Extremely rare, if not unprecedented, to have 3 top-10 games in the same day -- even in the NCAA tournament, since Elite 8 games are only two per day.Kudos to Stanford and Miss St for a good game. Will make each team better in the long run.
Glad I got to enjoy these early season matchups.
I hope so, but this team makes me nervous. I always knew what to expect from our last 3 teams, but this team has an entirely new look. They're still trying to figure out what they are.Miss state is going to crush WVU and USF. Come on now.
If you watched their game against Marquette, it seems unlikely. They have no great option at either PG or center.Miss state is going to crush WVU and USF. Come on now.
Guess we see things different. The Marquette game was an away game against a hot shooting team that had an exceptional game from outside. The Stanford game was against an elite team who shoot the ball well from outside. I did not see the Stanford game, not televised, but the team I saw play Marquette never quit, had the drive and desire to win and appeared to me to play better as the game progressed. We do appear to be susceptible to the 3 point shot and in my opinion we will need to vary our defense, some zone, to compensate for the outside shooting for perimeter shooters. I will be shocked and disappointed if we do not beat WVU and USF handily!I have to agree. I won't be surprised if we lose to West Virginia. The team we have feels like a team that could lose to anyone except the true cupcakes like Troy and JSU. The Marquette and Stanford games exposed issues that aren't quick fixes. The team also seems immature at times and lacks that killer instinct and drive to win. Some of that is due to the fact that they are still trying to find offensive chemistry, learn roles, and all pull in the same direction.
I'd love for that to have been true, but if it was, we would have won by a lot more than 5: we went 26.3% from outside, going 5-19 on treys. That is pretty dang poor, and certainly not "shoot[ing] the ball well from outside."The Stanford game was against an elite team who shoot the ball well from outside.
Know what they say about assuming, well that was me. I did not see the game but assumed Stanford beat us from outside because I know we are susceptible to the 3s, however you guys beat us badly on the boards. Jessica Carter, our main rebounder only got 6 rebounds and we got beat on the boards 51-31. Hope this was just an off night for Jessica but hats off to Stanford, the whole team rebounded well! Still believe we will beat USF and UWV handily and hoping we get another shot at you guys in the NCAA tournament.I'd love for that to have been true, but if it was, we would have won by a lot more than 5: we went 26.3% from outside, going 5-19 on treys.
