You are right the game is too fast for them right now. The inexperience shows, but again they are freshmen and have some ability to work with. I'm not ready to write them off just yet.

Exactly, thereís only been a small amount of her freshman that didnít seem to get it. I guess it sucks when 3/4 seem slow to the game. Also, not sure about Gilbert, didnít see enough of her, and was always hurt. I wish Muffet would of recruited more top talent for next year. If this team can somehow win again, who wouldnít want to play here?

I totally agree. It hurts that Ali Patberg transferred, but she needs to get an Arike like, athletic guard.

Patberg got hurt again this year. Thankfully she left but, she could have been special minus the injuries.

Patberg averaged 16.0 points, 4.7 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals this year. Despite her injury, she was named to the 2019 All-Big Ten Tournament team. I'd feel much more confident having her spell the guards than Prohaska. There's no comparison in talent. We may not win it all due to our lack of a substitute ball handler and defender. It is our Achilles heal.

Shaun Livingston and Andre Igudoula are both decent. At least Livingston still has value.

Had no idea Patburg was still playing for Indiana. Been scoring a ton.

Man did they close that game out. Could not have had a worse first half.
When theyíre clicking they can score so fast.
O gets the press but i think Young is the best player.

if ND starts the game slow against UConn then im not sure ND would stand a chance. get the offense rolling and try to get enough stops on defense.

ND's problem is, if their shots aren't falling, they compound the problem by getting out of the offense and playing a lot of 1 on 1. Mabrey and Arike are two of the main offenders. UCONN never does this. The other is that the defense gives up a lot of wide open 3 point shots. ND needs a good shooting night from the get go and a better 3 point defense.

Another unusual problem is that Katie Lou Samuelson is the one player who is a bit of a mismatch for Jackie Young. Usually, Young's speed and size bother other teams, but Samuelson is a problem for her. She can't post her up, or get that mid range jumper. They're going to play her like they did earlier in the season with Samuelson on her man to man. They recognize that we go as far as Young goes and she must be neutralized. She is our most consistent player.

We can win if we (particularly Arike) play a consistently good game and Young holds her own against Samuelson. We need to pound it in the paint with Turner and Shepard and try to get them in foul trouble. I think Turner is better today than she was at the beginning of the season. So, she needs to have a great game. I expect Shepard to play her usual outstanding game. Mabrey is our biggest weakness and UCONN is going to look to exploit her on both ends of the court.

Their weakness is that they only have one true big- Collier- and if Samuelson is off they can't rely on Walker to pick up the slack. I expect we'll guard Williams differently, or at least I hope so. We barely guarded her in December and she got tons of open looks. She's one of those players that if we give her easy three point shots, she's gonna hit them. Dangerfield keeps them in their offense and is a good game manager who can knock down big shots.

This is going to be a very tough game and the more disciplined team is going to win. It would be great if we put out a tremendous effort on defense all game long. We tend to slack off at times and good teams don't miss shots.

Canít believe Baylor is favored. ND and UCONN both looked like they play on a higher level than Baylor and Oregon.

At least Baylor doesn't have that guy Griner playing for them this year.

Maybe the ladies can exorcise the demons from that loss to UConn a few years back in Tampa, too.

Coach MM has done a tremendous job from recruiting the talent,to building a team that plays as a team. Imagine All five starters could be playing professionally next year....

Muffet needs to be suspended for setting up our university for a sex discrimination lawsuit. Jesus her fundamental misunderstanding of the Constitution is outrageous... Iím not calling for her firing because I think the problem today is a lack of forgiveness and the absence of the opportunity for self-reflection and penenance, but she needs to learn a lesson - regardless of her views, she has to live within the law and not get our school sued based on her own damned ignorance. What an embarrassment...
