      Don’t need a full recap. Easy say is once again we shot 31% from the field. Got out rebounded by 20 which is not unexpected. Thought the 4th quarter would be ours by wearing them down but we looked tired. Don’t understand why this team can’t make shots. Have a star to keep building around, get the right pieces and make a run next season.

      Says the guy who shlts on every play the men’s team makes. Just leave already, there is literally no one here that values your input. Like, if you just stopped posting, no one would ever say “man, I really miss old twatwaffle’s analysis”. No one, not a single person. You’d be forgotten about quicker than bigolbue. We have ALL told you as much, yet, here you are, still talking, answering questions that no one asked.

    If Coach Mitchell don’t start recruiting some bigger post players, UK women will never advance far in the tournament. Every women’s team i see has one or two big girls that can flat out rebound. It’s been he same ole same ole at Uk for years under Mitchell. Me personally I don’t think he will ever take them to a final four. They flat out got killed on the boards tonight. Maybe next year they will go farther in tourney. Hard to win on a opponents home floor.

      They have been beat badly on the boards all season. Have still been able to win most of them by forcing lots of turnovers. The killer all year has been shooting, 31% tonight and has happened in many games, team can’t shoot yet jacks up thirty 3’s. I guess the philosophy is don’t need a great % if you get 3 points vs 2 points, can make 33% at 10 of 30 3’s and other team needs 50% at 15 of 30 2’s to tie you.

      DAllen, sadly the other 6 seeds tonight did win on home court of 3 seeds, well all except us.
