    The Sisters have had their pre-game meal, and they are at the arena.

    It's time to get this started.

    Let's go Sisters!!!

    Is anyone else really excited for the women's game? I think that sums up ISU sports when I'm excited for a women's game this time of the year. And that isn't a knock on the women. I'm thankful that I have something to watch this week.

    Dehaan is the least of our worries. She's not good enough to beat anybody by herself.

    If they lay off us, shoot the 3.

    If they guard the 3 line, then penetrate and dish.

    When we are on defense, it would not surprise me if BF has a couple tricks up his sleeve (remember, his coaching brethren talk about his willingness to bring out any junk defense if it has a chance of working - think box and 1 or triangle and 2).

    Exactly!!

    People forget how many men's games we won with one of the best players in the country.

    Okay. I had never seen her play. I just heard that she was 6'9 and our tallest player is 6'3.

    In college basketball, you can eliminate almost any one player. She shouldn't be able to beat us by herself.

    6'4 is our tallest, and we have a couple of them. Just because she is tall doesn't mean much. MSU has lost 10 games this year in a weak Big10, they can be beat.

    Also, the webcast is here

    Dehaan is really really skinny.

    She's not an offensive force (~10pts a game) and not a great rebounder (around 6 a game), but she is a very very good shot blocker.

    I don't think that bothers us to much because we don't score many points around the rim. It may cut down on Nikki's offensive production, though.

    The newspaper's made her sound like a 6'9 Candance Parker or something.

    I disagree. Wieben could have her career night. Dehaan wont come out. Wieben 48% from 3 could have a field day. Most of Wieben points are on screen cuts. Dehaan is not that mobile.. easy to screen.

    In a previous thread somebody compared her to Shawn Bradley, and I think that was pretty accurate.
