    Who was the player of the game? Lou - for setting the tone in the 1st quarter? Gabby for being everywhere? Kia for shutting down Durr for long stretches of the game?

    Tough decision ...can't vote for just one.

    No Lou? we don't win.
    No Gabby? we don't win.
    No Kia? we don't win.

    Next year will be interesting....

    And when Crystal wasn't in the game the offense seemed to not be nearly as efficient.

    All true., but, as the famous saying in Orwell's Animal Farms goes: "All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others." If one HAS to cast only ONE vote, it would be difficult not to give it to KLS. Even Geno himself said that the game was to be won or lost on how well the team executed offensively. And if offense was key, then KLS was the absolute pivotal offensive piece.

    I'm not going to vote for one. They all were essential, as was Crystal, for that matter. But also, give Louisville a ton o credit. By the end of Q1, their players were looking like a tornado hit them, which probable was close to true. But they really did come back well. Walz did a good job getting his team back in the game.

    As a fan it is delicious to have so many credible choices and you can't score if your team mate doesn't get you the ball in the right spot at the right moment, but it was Lou who put the orange thing up and in with such calm assurance.

    I had to vote for Katie Lou her 19 first half points set the differential which Louisville never could break through.
    Gabby --earns part for jumping into the rafters for a steal
    Kia---- earns part for the defense of Durr who only had 6 points in the first half--ended with 20 after Kia backed off.
    Geno---earned all of it the old fashioned way---work, sweat and tears. (thanks Geno for putting Walker and Z in the game--it will pay off in practices and in the NCAA's, it would have been easy to sit them)

    Center--it is my less than factual opinion that Geno was using his lead to practice using Azura against decent bigs--and the deliberate offense, which didn't flow, was a Geno practice session knowing he was in a Win Win situation.
