    Syracuse needs a Nurse.

    Love the atmosphere at Gampel. Excellent job by the athletic dept. to give the students free tickets.

    Kia Nurse is having a Pan-Am Games type performance. And then some.

    UConn, despite scant depth, is a difficult scout because its players are so versatile and because Kia, Crystal, and Saniya are capable of stepping up on any given day.

    Louisville/UT with 2:00 mins left in the half sees the Cards up 33-27.

    I just LOVE that any given night you can't tell WHO is going to step up and be spectacular. What a half.

    I wouldn't be surprised if McNab and his wife (former Cuse pg) are at the game

    I think Kia took umbrage to "the best backcourt" and is acting accordingly.

    First and far most, BY's I need to ask a huge favor, May you please jump up and down, stomp your feet and wave your hands for me, when UConn score, due to a medical condtion I am really unable to, but sometimes I get so excited and I end up laid up. If you can do this for me, say yes, I have your back.
    Kia is killing Syracuse, she is on fire, and so is the team. I am loving this game.

    DeShields is sitting with 2 fouls. Tennessee hanging pretty tough. Nared has 15 points. 35-31 UL at the half.

    I would be ashamed of myself if I was the ref and made those foul calls on Gabby and Katie Lou when Peterson threw her head back before the half. Got to be the worst calls i have seen all year. Whether I'm a Uconn fan or not, it makes no difference. Step it up refs, this is tournament time!

    Why is UConn ahead by so much?

    Answer: 20 assists on 21 baskets.

    Let's hear it for the defensive intensity to follow their shooters way outside and yet contest every pass into the interior. That's playing with the mind and the heart.

    SU comes out shooting hot. That will fade. They still can't stop the UConn offense.
