    ***WBB Gameday: KU at ISU***

    Resist the temptation to think KU without Davis can't compete. "SeniorAishah Sutherland has recorded back-to-back double-doubles and is averaging 18.0 points and 14.5 rebounds over the last two games." Davis went down in the early minutes of the KSU game, yet, the "Jayhawks recorded a +14 rebound margin at Kansas State" and lost by only four on the road. Chelsea Gardner 6-3 Frosh is the likely starter in place of Davis. "Coach Bonnie Henrickson has said that Gardner’s style of play reminds her a lot of Davis ... Long and lean just like Davis." I note that Henrickson has recruited well so the team talent is good.

    With six games left, including a road game against BU, Iowa State 14-9 overall and 5-7 in conference, IMHO, has to finish no worse than 9-9 in conference to make the dance. I would expect the team set a goal at the beginning of the season to play in the tournament we host. It's time to get the game face on and finish this thing.

    For those of us stranded hundreds of miles away, the audio and video is on CloneZone at 7:00. I've got a couple of lower level tix I would gladly transfer to anyone who can use them.

    Re: ***WBB Gameday: KU at ISU***

    Probably the two most crucial games of the whole season right here this week. Gotta get these two to dance. I flew back from New York to see these games -- little did I know when I bought my ticket many months ago how important they would be. BF's teams are measured by their success in the NCAAs.

    Watch the D on goodrich. Pop might have a great day, but, guard play may be the key to victory. For KU, everything runs through Angel Goodrich. She plays almost 37 min pg - the most of anyone in the conference. She scores 12.6; leads in assists 7.79; is third in steals 2.92 , 3 pt % .382, and assists/to % 2.17. If we lock down on her, we impact their whole offense.

    Re: ***WBB Gameday: KU at ISU***

    Keys to the game imo...
    1. Work the ball inside to Pop and Prins. Get KU's posts in foul trouble early.
    2. Guard play. They have to be a scoring threat. The way to do that is drive the lane. Be aggressive. Driving the lane pulls the defense in leading to (a) feed to a post, (b) bucket by driving guard, or (c) an open shooter outside.
    3. Movement. No standing around like last game. Players have to be in constant motion and the ball has to move around.
    4. Hit your free throws.

    Footnote...Big C has to be a factor.

    Obviously we need to shoot well, seems like when that happens, everything takes care of itself.

    Right you are - for the most part our defense does its job. Last time out, we held TT to 51, 18 pts under their average. The problem - we hit 31% for 41 pts. To make it worse, at any %, they took 12 more shots than we did.

    11:55 to go in the half. 13-6 ISU. ISU playing sloppy, but Kansas is off to a rough start.

    ISU has 5 turnovers already, but has a 14-5 lead in rebounds and is shooting somewhat better than Kansas.

    5:24 left. More of the same, although Kansas is looking better. 19-14 ISU.

    Ugly game so far but Iowa State does lead 21-17. Cyclones have 10 turnovers, but are beating Kansas on the boards 22-9.

    Only got tuned in about five minutes ago but looks like too much dribble dribble dribble and not enough passing and movement. Looks a little like last game in that respect.

    21-17 at 2:08. Kansas is playing the same style of aggressive defense that always gives us fits (and largely doing it cleanly) but they don't have much going for them offensively. Both teams are better defensively than offensively.

    Moody is really struggling. 4 turnovers for her already.

    23-21 KU at half. ISU did virtually nothing on offense in the 2nd quarter.
