    Next Up...TCU

    Last road game of the season for our Sisters. They go to Fort Worth, a trip they will make again next week for the now separated tournament, to play a TCU team that has really struggled in its first season as a part of the Big 12. Its no easy task to join the toughest conference in the country after being used to playing in a mid-major league. Of particular interest to state fans is seeing Whit Williams being ushered out as a senior. Things haven't gone very well for her at TCU as she spends most of her time on the bench after being the heir apparent at ISU.

    As i looked over game notes at the TCU site I had to smile at how PR people can give a positive spin to anything. For example, TCU is 20-8 over the last five regular season games since the 07-08 season. Doesn't mean much this year as TCU is currently 1-15 in the conference with their only win against OSU on Feb 20th. What that does say is that if the Sisters don't bring their game TCU is capable of beating them.

    TCU is led by Zahna Medley (12.7) and Natalie Ventress (11.6) on the offensive end. The team is averaging about 59 points per game while giving up 65. Their leading rebounder is Latricia Lovings at 9 per outing.

    This should be a game that the sisters take care of in workmanlike fashion. They need to play their game, clamp down on defense and get the offense rolling early. If they do that they'll be in the right frame of mind to be ready for the quick turnaround and Monday's rematch against OSU.

    Re: Next Up...TCU

    This could be a great end to a great season if things go right. I just watched Kansas, and the Kstate games on cyclone tv, and I think if the front line stays out of foul trouble, and we take care of the ball, we are going to be a tough team to beat. I have to go to a high school game tomorrow night, so I won't be able to track this one. I am really keyed for these two games, and the men's games for obvious reasons.

    I think the most important things for everyone to do is stay healthy and out of foul trouble. I know that will be hard to do in regard to the fouls given the physicality of Big 12 but if they all do that I think we'll be in good shape. We're clicking at the right time it seems.

    I've been away from the board quite a bit recently due to moving and changing careers. For the first time in quite a while, I finally have time to watch a game. Unfortunately, we decided to drop cable so I won't be able to watch this one.

    Re: Next Up...TCU

    Don't know what is worse the officiating or the announcers. Tcu travelling, offensive foul on prins the defender was inside the semi circle....and te announcers are clearly not objective

    Women playing as bad as the men. Down by 5 at halftime to lowly TCU. Pathetic.

    All the girls had to do was win today to wrap up 2nd place in the conference and instead we are down 16 to a 1 win team.
