Why in the heck doesn't coach have them guard the three point line. Hey have made 18 threes so far.

Another 3 pointer by DePaul to win. Sad they didn't guard the three, they made 19 of them.. Worse we turned it over 22 times I think.

When you can't hit pressure free throws and defend the 3-point line after shooting well over 50 percent from the field, then you don't deserve to win. This team has a lot of grit and heart, but the little things are what win games and we just did not do enough of that. This will be a very good lesson for the girls and will make them a better team as the season progresses.

12 turnovers by Manning and VPL. Shot 20 more free throws than DePaul did. That does not happen often on the road.

They were 12-13 from free-throw line, we were 23 of 33. Got to shoot better at the line.

It is a good thing SC put a great emphasis on defense and cutting down on turnovers this year. If not, this thing could have got really out of hand. Same ole, same ole.

We're young- I like our talent- I like our roles this year, not so many people that need the ball all game. I think we are better than last year by the end of the year.


We will be alright, but we need to get a lot better. Too many turnovers is the highlight for me.

The bad thing is, these games become really important at the end of the year with the home court advantage coming into play.

Just hope this team doesn't run out of gas in February. It has 9 bodies and this was not a physical game. Of course, Northern Colorado just beat this team by six at Depaul.

Shay was a bright spot a making layups but that is too easy to stop if that’s all you do. Yes just a freshman but the forces she had at the end of the game that turned into a to were just too critical. Poor decision making in crunch time and then didn’t convert free throws and never adjusted defense to stop the 3- my guess is we will say we didn’t think that they would keep shooting that way - kinda like Washington last year - you can’t hope they will stop you have to stop them

You can say that again. About 50 times. But it wont matter. Defense has never been a priority here except in preseason chatter. Once in a while it may be mentioned in passing but without serious intent.

I think this worked against us. Clearly, Depaul is a great program. Haven't they won their conference the last four years? They are ranked in the top 20 this year and should be good again. They laid an egg in their opener and certainly played a lot better against us.

Looking at the box score, the stat that determined the outcome of the game wasn't defense or their 3 point shooting. It was our free throw shooting.

I was at the game. I loved that I got a chance to see this team in person. There were a decent amount of Sooner fans (in DePaul's veryyyy small arena), and I presume most of them were family members of players. It was cool to sit among them -- always good to be reminded that these women are good people from good families who give their all to OU.

I went to the game with a group of people who don't typically watch women's basketball and this was a perfect game to take them to because it was so exciting. They saw the most points ever scored in an OU women's game! I love seeing this sport gain new fans.

It was a VERY fast-paced game, particularly in the first half. Back and forth, punch for punch. They could not contain Shaina - not even a little bit whatsoever. She was made for this style of game. Coach Coale is exactly right that her speed is a gamechanger.

We were notably tired in overtime. Only 9 players (8 after Ana fouled out) in a very fast where DePaul applied full court pressure for 45 minutes is not conducive to winning in overtime. I remember Gabbi attempting a big 3-point shot late in the game and it was lined up perfectly but hit the front rim. She was tired because she worked her butt off for 45 minutes and didn't leave the game.

Ya know, holding an opponent to 42% from the 3-point line isn't good but it isn't TERRIBLE. The fact that they attempted 45 3s is objectively wild. I highly doubt we see anything like that for the rest of the year.

Maddie oscillated between struggling and dominating pretty much all night. She handled the press well and our offense, in general, looks much smoother when she's in there. But she also forced a lot of ill-advised passes.

ViVi had a MONSTER game. She was also VERY passionate on the bench, screaming at her teammates late in the game. Good to see that from her. I don't think it was malicious, I just assume she was frustrated that she was the only one crashing the boards effectively at times. She HAS to stop trying to put the ball on the floor all the time though. That resulted in too many turnovers. I want to see her kick it back out for a wide open 3 when she's double or triple teamed.

This was a good early test for this team. Hopefully we use it for good.

Anyone else frustrated that Soonersports.com never uploads post-game quotes for away games?

I like Shay as a starter, but not sure if it should be in the point guard roll... Williams has been scoring consistently, but Shay has more upside and really plays down hill, starting her would put pressure on the defense at ththe start of games...

Manning was guarding Coleman with her hands down, she also went for a flop and Boom! Coleman hits a game winner, as someone who is looked to as a lead/tone setter it was hard to watch...
