Colgate at the Tundra

The team played poorly after the first quarter.  Turnovers, poor shooting.  They made Colgate look good (which they surely are not).  LC gave up too many offensive rebounds which was a major problem against LU last Saturday although I haven't seen the stats yet.

I thought they would play better.

I only saw the second half, but what I did see was, I thought, the team's worst performance of the year.  The only bright spots were Hood's typical solid performance (other than her uncharacteristically missing free throws), and Ottewill-Soulsby played hard and hustled.  No one else made a significant impact.  They miss Stipa.  Why, why, why is Lutz - one of the best rebounders and over-all performers this year - sitting on the bench again when we are getting killed on the boards???  It seems like coach wants to develop Ribarich and give her minutes, but that is just painful to watch at times right now.  This was a big game with tournament implications, but we did not seem to treat it as such.  Very disappointing.

Totally agree with Ransom.  This was a very poor effort by a group that seemed to be improving over the course of the season.  The season can't end soon enough.

Well, its been a disappointing season. Going into the last regular season game we are 6-21 overall, 4 -13 in league play. Last year we finished 14-17 overall and 6-12 in league play. This kind of indicates that our problem was not coaching. I'm hoping that the problem is/was recruiting, but we won't know if that's the difference maker until next season.

Women drop 68 - 59 game to Bucknell.  Colgate beats Lehigh. No home playoff game. Looks like they will be traveling to Colgate for pigtail game.

A god effort vs the Bison.  Much better than in the previous several games.

So they get to play 'Gate one more time - this time at the Tundra.  Let's hope for a better effort.

Does anyone think this team can go on the road to one of its many "halls of horrors" and win a playoff game? Hope and prayers only go so far.Sorry to be so negative but my optimism has been thrashed out of me by the torrent of losses by both the men and the women.And I thought the men were a better team than the women.
