Re: Connecticut

20 6-5 Soph F Olivia Nelson-Ododa 12.44 ppg, 8.78 reb/gm, 26 assists
03 6-0 Jr F Megan Walker 22.11 ppg, 9.33 reb/gm, 29 assists
25 6-2 Sr F Kyla Irwin 4.50 ppg, 3.25 reb/gm, 22 assists
13 5-11 Soph G Christyn Williams 16.00 ppg, 5.33 reb/gm, 23 assists
05 5-5 Sr G Crystal Dangerfield 14.14 ppg, 3.86 reb/gm, 25 assists

Key reserves:

24 6-1 Fr G Anna Makurat 4.22 ppg, 3.89 reb/gm, 26 assists
44 6-1 Fr G Aubrey Griffin 6.33 ppg, 4.67 reb/gm, 6 assists

Notice how evenly-shared the assists are.

Kyla Irwin is 7-11 from three. Walker hits 47.73% of threes. Dangerfield hits 40.43% of threes.

All starters hit at least 72% of free throws.

FG%: UConn 47.99 opponents 34.58
Three-point %: UConn 37.63 opponents 28.96
Scoring: UConn 78.56 opponents 57.56
Rebounds: UConn 48.39 opponents 34.11
Turnovers: UConn 125 opponents 125
Blocks: UConn 50 opponents 20

UConn is 9-0. But, most of the games are not complete blowouts this year. They are only winning by 21 points per game.

Re: Connecticut
I looked on the Connecticut wbb forum, pretty much everyone predicts us to lose by 20 to 30 points.. a lot of posters mentioned us losing to Wichita State in Houston, assuming the team we were then is the team they will play tomorrow. I hope to God that's not right.

Re: Connecticut
Our sophomores and juniors have learned a lot more about getting the ball to each other.

But, we have not played well on the road yet. Therein lies the primary concern that I have. In Norman, I think we would have beaten W. KY, Wichita, and Houston.

UConn has won big in Storrs. But, this year on the road, they are not as dominant as usual. Which will we get? We are not certain that we can play well on the road. But, UConn has not yet shown itself to be UConn-dominant.

I have no clue.

Re: Connecticut
In theory, this game should be closer than last year's game was, considering what they lost and what we brought back, etc. But if we played them as close as we played them last year tomorrow I would be very surprised and not too upset with a loss. I think when we have been on this year we've been very good indeed. Only missing that big defensive presence down low to keep us going when the outside shooting cools off..I'm very interested to see what kind of game it is.

Re: Connecticut
Uconn beat Notre Dame like a rented mule in Storrs this season, and unfortunately will do the same to OU. They are a different team in Gampel.

Re: Connecticut
It only makes a tiny bit of difference but we are playing them at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville instead of Gampel.

TV at times looks like the worst player in the history of WBB.

Re: Connecticut
Closer than I thought it would be at the half, maybe OU can keep it under 20pts.

Re: Connecticut
Why is it Uconn 6'1" girl about 4" taller than OU's 6'0" girl. Not one of OU ladies would crack the starting 5 of Uconn.

Re: Connecticut
UConn 66, OU 35 with under nine minutes.

What's even more interesting is not one of the UCONN ladies would crack the OU starting lineup.

Re: Connecticut
It is a good thing that SC caught UConn in a "down" year or this could have been really ugly.

Re: Connecticut
The final is 97-53 UConn. That is without Geno.

Who will transfer this year?

Re: Connecticut
Two programs on different ends of the spectrum. UConn at or near the top of Tier 1. SC's OU program at or near the bottom of Tier, well pick whatever you want. When is enough enough?

sybarite 12-22-2019 05:02 PM

Re: Connecticut
You win games in practice.

I didn't see much of the game. Recorded it. I saw just enough to think OU lost it on the way to Connecticut.

Re: Connecticut
Simpson and TV were total duds. Simpson is probably one of the most unathletic, untalented multiple year starters I've ever seen on a division 1 team. She contributes less than players like Scott who played a fraction of the minutes she played. When we rely on two players to score for us we're not going to beat good teams. Madi is so inconsistent and unreliable, it's just a big disappointment. It seems like our only offensive plan is to hope that one of the two girls plays well, or both at the same time, and maybe another player or two contribute. Uconn exposed how incredibly unathletic we are and how little genuine division one talent we really have. So embarrassed. This game was nationally televised too. Shame on you SC.

Re: Connecticut
Did Sherri lose a bet with Geno or something? Why do we feel like we have to play them every year?

Well I have to agree with you on that one...
