Strong showing, too bad they don't have their best player. That could make a difference. We are definitely not one dimensional this year.

Thought a little about that also, but have to play the team that's in front of you. And we are doing that well at least the 1st half.

See, folks. This is how we know who the actual basketball fan is.
We only have one, but this guy gets it.

I'm starting to think that Bill and TJ coached each other's teams in practice this week. Our men scored 81 points tonight and our ladies have held Michigan State to 32 so far in the 4th quarter.

Great push over the last couple minutes. Got a little hairy (kind of, still had a large lead) and now we look to ice it. 70-48 with 3:24 left.

Thanks for the link!

In watching the replay, in the first half on one play the Michigan State center "blocks" a shot by Kane but her arm follows through and smashes Kane in the face! Ref's called a non-shooting foul! Said that the block was clean and the foul afterwards. Huh? The foul was committed in one continuous arm motion with the block milliseconds after the "block".

How is this different than the three point shooter being run into after the shot goes up? They always call that a foul on the three point shot. Not a foul after the shot.

Confused.

I am with you on this one. At least with this particular case.

That was a weird call. Didn't bother me too much, game ended in a rout, but would have pissed me off in a close came.
