Default Depaul @ OKlahoma

Our perimeter defense has been horrible at times this year, and unfortunately I can’t see that changing vs DePaul... watching the games it looks like half the team is playing some type of sagging zone, and the other half is playing man to man... this is due to a lack of height, so everyone has to help Mandy out... OU has Played well in the 1st sometimes even building a big lead and we play well in the 3rd quarter, but normally get killed in the 2nd quarter and then fatigue come into play in the 4th costing us the game... it’s kind of what you expect from a young team, they just need to put it all together.

I think we get soundly beaten.

However, if they ladies try hard, play smart, do their best, learn and make progress, whatever the scores ends up wont matter.

We all know this may be a step too far right now for this young team. Chances are we come away with a numerically bad loss.

Just hold the turnovers to 20 and try to get to 60 percent from the line. Those would be steps in the right direction.

It also would be nice if we had some fire from coaches on the bench.

I’ll be proud of the girls, no matter what.

53-30 DePaul at the end of the first half. The good news FT shooting is 13-13, 100%, the bad news is the Blue Demons are shooting 55% and OU is 27% from the field.

I question whether we are athletic enough to compete with good teams. This doesn’t look promising. This year or next year or the year after.

Who are you??? Are you willfully blind? When has their expertise ever gotten them ready to play competitive teams in the past?

They are just better than we are and they don't miss.

Let's take the free throw improvement as a solid plus and surprise.

if this team had a true 5 we'd be doing a lot better.

Sherri needs to go the Juco route immediately. Find the best 5 not already signed and get them in here.

We also seemed to have tightened up on turnovers, but I haven't checked the stats.

We're just overmatched and that is the bottom line.

Games like this not only make you miss Mulkey, but also shows how her transfer set us back so much... Dungee to a lesser extent, but even her experience could have helped this team..

at this point a tall girl who doesn’t foul or turn the ball over would be useful...

The third quarter is the best 10 minutes of basketball this team has played this year by far. 32 point quarter. It appears Shaina has finally figured out that she can assist in addition to score.

Unbelievable 3rd quarter.

Turnovers down. Free throws great. Tremendous hustle. Best quarter in several years.

This was a tremendous effort.

Solid in all areas.

Very proud of the ladies and coaches.

Worth note that Sherri substituted very little.

87-76 DePaul, there is some hope.

We got 26 free throws, they got 6, Doug Bruno not happy with the refs.

Less than 15 turnovers. 89 percent from the line.

43 percent from the field.

Best game of season.

Best game in nearly two years, IMO.

Smart play too.

DePaul
6-2 Senior
6-1 Junior
5-10 Senior
5-10 Junior
5-8 Senior

We went:

6-0 Sophomore
6-0 Freshman
5-7 Sophomore
5-7 Freshman
5-7 Freshman

And, the kids came back to within six from down 27.

DePaul is a good team, probably the type of team that we will be trying to mimic. We likely won't get the big posts that are available to UConn, Baylor, and S.Carolina. We will play more like Notre Dame and DePaul with athleticism and passing. We executed better today for longer than we have at any time this year. Had one really bad stretch in the second quarter, about as bad as DePaul's when we scored 17 in a row (two offensive foul calls stopped that run). The problem was that DePaul executed better. How many layups did they get?

Key---the dominated the boards. Mandy was as big. But, she wasn''t as physical as the DePaul players. They pushed and grabbed at the ball, making for a lot of free balls. How many of those did they pick up and put back in?

We won the second half. I think we discovered that we could play if we just played within ourselves. We let them get to us early, turnovers on two of the first three possessions. Jessi had a slow start. Madi had a good game although she seemed to lose her balance every time she got the ball in the first half.

When Shaina began looking for someone else, we really did well. I think we showed that we can play with a good team. I doubt that DePaul wants to meet us again this year.

All the above is correct but still not happy because inevitably we lost. now just imagine, DePaul got beat by over 30 points by Connecticut. Just how competitive is our game with Connecticut realistically going to be?! I'm just ready for Big 12 Play because I don't feel like our games are going to be as ugly at that point. I really I am happy with the freshman doing as well as they have thus far. Really disgusted with how bad Lampkin's free throw shooting is though.... I stay Aspen will probably transfer out due to lack of play.... Just saying.

I legitimately think we can beat Texas this year. Maybe have a shot at most of the teams except for Baylor. What do you all think?

I hope so. The question arises, however, if this was an aberration.

This game shows we can definitely play much better than we have so far this season. The question is - will we?

Simpson had her best game ever for us, but she still wasn't that effective and she missed a couple of chip shots. But what I liked was she tried very hard, I thought.

Seemed like we passed the ball better, more crisply and accurately, at all spots on the floor tonight and that we reversed the ball swiftly (not something we have done in years).

Another thing, Simpson, Wellington and Williams played the entire game.

Sherri only subbed her guards. My guess is EJ's significant playing time is over unless Simpson is in foul trouble.

I think some of this is fool's gold......

A team gets up by 30......they're going to let up.

How many conference games does this team win???

Three things we needed to do 1) control their three point game 2) reduce turnovers and 3) hit free shots. We did all three but were done in by our main weakness. The middle. Too many offensive rebounds and worse still, putbacks. Bless Mandy's hustling heart but she will be often facing bigger inside players and most often quicker players.


This one is on recruiting. We lost Mulkey two years ago and have not secured a center who can cope with the bigger quicker players.

We did give up some back doors and give and go baskets but that is to be expected when you are challenging the three point shooters. Bigger problem is the fast break baskets they got after we scored.

Lack of depth hurt as well. We had some opportunities in the 4th quarter but were unable to capitalize. Probably at least partially to fatigue. We really need to secure more relief for Simpson and Robertson. Not good for them to have to play the whole game.

Good to see Pellington emerge again. She must sleep with sugar plums in hear head when DePaul is coming to town. Their wide open game is ideal for her style of play. Also good to see she and Maddie connect so well and often. A good night of progress for Maddie. She should have a better idea what she can do at this level after today's game.

Kudos to Robertson. Faced with a box and one she didn't try to do too much and turned in a 19 point game. Also good to see her score on other than the treys. Watched to see if anyone tried to screen to get her open but the one occasion I observed resulted in an offensive foul by Simpson. May have missed some.

Some progress made. Still a fun team to watch.
