I thought the final score might actually look something like this.

Four UConn starters combined 0-16 in first half. Hayes 0-8.

We did little to establish Stef inside. We are playing too fast rather than briskly.

On the other hand Stef played tremendous inside on the defensive end.

Kara and Bob saying Tiffany is "pressing". Trying too hard.

So...um...can people stop questioning that Hartley's this team's best guard now?
Not at all. She has made a lot of errors tonight, too. She is, however, the one who other than lewis has made shots. She has gotten herself in trouble driving the lane more than once.

She is much better as a 2 than at the point.

5 blocks, 7 steals, 4 turnovers. If we could only shoot (KML and Bria excepted).

Sit Tiff at the start of the 2nd and start KML? Give Tiff time to watch the game progress and then go in?

Its early, but interesting how the game resembled the championship game two years ago except for our younger players.
The more senior players seem nervous and are ineffective; the kids are fearless and just better.
Tough post but its so very evident.

I wasn't but I think it was pretty obvious to those with video. Bob and Kara, of course are doing radio.

What I don't like is that we have no scoring balance. All Stanford has to do is face guard Kaleena effectively and we are done unless someone besides Bria starts hitting shots.

Caroline has obviously lost a step. She still has the heart, but this game looks a little too quick for her. Kelly Faris needs to hit some shots. They need to settle down on offense and find Stef.

Yes, we took good care of the ball for the amount of pressure but it may, also, be a sign of too many shots too quickly.

1st half:

KML = A+ = duh
Dolson = B = good defense
Hartley = B- = started to come on late in the half
Stokes = B- = not bad

the rest I won't write out, but needless to say in the C and worse range
Hayes has been a disaster

Yep, some of the other players will need to step up in the 2nd half. We'll see what they're made of.

Somewhat disappointing to see that players with lots of experience are letting the big moment get to them and not settling down to play with a little more poise. I love 'em.... just sayin. It is understandable for the first 5 minutes but after that you should be able to slow things down in your mind and see the game a little more clearly, shoot in rhythm, move a little more smoothly. KML is the only one moving smoothly out there.

She is playing quick without hurrying.

Most everyone else is rushing.....

Everybody is working their a*s off though, absolutely NO lack of effort at either end, and the Defense has been lights out. We'll see what both coaches do for adjustments at halftime.

The good thing is that Kelly is looking for her shot and that in itself is the first step.

They haven't been scoring, but their defense has been outstanding...

Absolutely, they are all working very hard.

The team needs to calm down, especially Tiff.. My only disappointment is that we didn't build a lead with Necka on the bench.

We have to contain the O sisters this half...if Nneka can pick up a third foul we will be in good position. Feed the big girl!!
