Once again, gonna have to bring in some folks who can compete on the inside. It’s at halftime and is Gawd awful…Doubt very seriously UConn will lose a conference game this year…so what’s new…


#4

I think our gals let the mystic get to them. They played the worst game I have seen in a long time. UCONN is a great team, no doubt, but we played way below what could even be called average.


#5

Also, there was no shuttle from TDECU to H&PE today. what genius thought that was a good idea? And to not announce it, to boot!

It might have something to do with the caliber of competition the Coogs have played…this has to be one of the most embarrassing losses in a long time…and team is better than many we have had in the past…


#7

Got to bring in some height and need some girls who can shoot threes!!!

You cannot have a roster with that many sub 6’ players and expect to be successful in this era of women’s basketball. After watching the game against Cinn on Wed, the lopsided margin today doesn’t suprise me, the 60 pt. margin does.

This may be a good loss today. Felt the team was playing a little loose against Cincy and needed a wake-up call. Was hoping the loss to Cincy would be a wake up call, but maybe this was what was needed. See how they respond going forward.

we shot 40% from the line. That’s not UCONN.


#12

Sometimes a good whipping is what it takes.


#13

Nothing good comes from a good whooping except pain and humiliation.

UConn is in a class by themselves.

We’re in their conference, but not in their league.


#14

My experience is different. Lady Coogs have talent and getting whomped like that can help them realize it takes more than talent. It wasn’t all height related either. we shot 40% from the line and I saw some unbelievably bad passing. Our team just played very poorly and UCONN just played their game. They could have beaten us by 80 or more.
