    Missing easy shots

    I watched the ISU - EIU replay last night. Granted. I am not a WBB expert, but have seen several games over the years. The thing that is hard for me to understand is the number of easy shots they miss. I am talking layups and 1-2 foot put backs. They should have blown out Iowa by 30+, but missed way too many easy shots. Lacey is the only player that consistently made her layups.

    You're absolutely right. However, this is not the norm in the women's games. Both teams were shooting pretty horrid during the game. Our women do not normally shoot that poorly.

    No kidding. The Drake game was brutal for Garrett and Hubalek. How many point blank shots do you want?

    Re: Missing easy shots

    ya it was just kinda an off night.. we didnt shoot to well from behind the arc either.. but lately its been our D that has stepped up and during this game ball control.. to hold iowa to 28% shooting and to force 17 turnovers and to commit 5 is pretty awesome

    I wish our men could shoot the trey like our women do. Would sure take a lot of defensive attention off our big guys.

    Re: Missing easy shots

    I think if we had a three point shooting contest between the men's and women's team, it would be no contest.

    Re: Missing easy shots

    My kingdom for a real three point shooter. I would personally donate 25,000 credits to get that shooter on this team. The inside game has a very hard time because the outside game is ZERO threat....our outside shooting percentage is dependent on the outside air temprerture for the game.

    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    I was very surprised by this. I don't watch a lot of women's games and have only been to 1 or 2, but from the times I have watched and listened to them, 3's were the strong point.

    It is nice though that they have people like Ross and Wieben, who can get the points in the paint when those 3's don't fall.

    Yeah, we talked about this in the post-game thread a bit.

    Really was the worst offensive night for the girls, but probably one of the best defensive. After about the 10 minute mark or so, the bunny layups started falling more easily

    I thought the game was officiated so the teams could play physically. I thought both teams got away with some shoves and grabs on shooters under the basket. I also thought that Iowa was focussing thier defense on stopping the 3 point shots. After the way the woman have shot a couple nights this year, I don't blame them.
