    Confusing note about OU game...

    Baylor outscored OU 51-6 in the paint. Where were our bigs in the scoring column today?

    Was it the bigs today, or the turnovers by our guards? Molly Parrott talked about it. Mansfield had 6 big ones.

    the bigs can't score if the ball doesn't get to them. ie: our guards couldn't pass it inside, and when they did, the bigs usually delivered, though Anna had her couple usual wild shots, but it was the on ball pressure on the guards that cost this game.

    Sometimes it is up to the bigs to help the guards get it inside. They have to move and put themselves in a position to receive the ball. If you look at the stats you see two things - they didn't get the ball much and when they did they didn't do much with it (Zimm, Pop and AP were a combined 3-10 from the field. Another telling stat is that the bigs never attempted a single free throw.

    the fact that Loz had 6 or 7 turnovers speaks volumes to me. There wasn't a lot of inside outside passing, but a lot of handing off by guards back and forth outside the 3 ball line.

    I don't pin this loss on the bigs. They didn't have the ball much, which was a result of OUs on ball pressure. As you said, it was the turnovers and free throws (Cole and Jess missing the front end of one-and-ones especially) that cost the game.

    I agree totally. In addition, lots of "bigs" get easy shots when the guards drive and penetrate, force a double-team, and then dish to their left-open forward or center teammate in the lane. Exhibit A: Baylor.
    Our guards can't dribble-drive much, so that option for Poppens, Prins, and Z does not exist.
