    Keys to game vs UConn

    How many 3s do the Twister Sisters need to make to hang with the Machine?

    Can we out rebound them?

    We can't turn the ball over at all.

    I'm all for us beating them, but wow, they are so much better than in 1999 and we were too.

    Honestly, it will probably take 18-20 3's to stay in the game.

    They are beasts. It's going to take the Post to have the games of their lifes to bang with those girls.

    Gotta slow them down a bit too.

    Re: Keys to game vs UConn

    I don't know how to answer this. They will have to play a flawless game and have some breaks go their way.

    Seriously they are like playing a conference all star team that has been playing together all year.

    Hope for UConn to get food poisioning, and then maybe something else. It's going to make a miracle to beat them. This isn't David vs. Goliath, it's more of the equivalent of David vs God. How many wins in a row now? 58?

    Re: Keys to game vs UConn

    Key to the game - somehow make sure the UConn women come down with the plague.

    The key to the game is play our best (hit our threes, don't turn the ball over, etc.) and just pray that UConn's game is off for the first time in 70 or so games...

    Fortunately for us, David was a man after God's own heart...

    I just happen to be interning in Dayton this year; I'll see what I can do.

    Also, I realize this is going to be ugly, but I've gotta go to the game since I'm already here. How many other Fanatics will be there to join me?


    Winning cures all.

    Re: Keys to game vs UConn

    With a little bit of luck and a perfect execution. Don't turn the ball over, find the way to make shots and make all the shots. If we had better FG% last tourney, we could have beaten Stanford.
    Believe !
    I remember reading Sean Keeler at DMReg's column last week: UNI can't be compared to the Jayhawks. But they only need to be better for 40 minutes. Just 40 minutes. And we know that they were ! The Cyclones can do it !
