I thought we'd gotten better at defending the 3, but on that one, it looked like everybody was running away from the 3 point shooter. Argh. And oh yeah, Reed and Newby both have two fouls. 12-5 Missouri early.

We'd done a pretty good job keep the MO lead in single digits, or close, but then some more 3s put us down 17, 39-22 midway through the 2nd quarter.

After trailing by as much as 22 (gag), a better end-of-the quarter brought VU back to an 11-point deficit at 48-37. Not where we want to be, but better than it might have been.

We are doing better offensively but still turning it over too much and allowing too many points. Overbeck, in particular, needs to go get the dang ball when it's thrown to her inside.

It looks to me like she's still hampered physically. Kudos to her for trying to play through it, but at times she doesn't look like she's at her best.

Agree with Overbeck needing to be a little better handling the ball. Sitting here in an empty stadium.

And with that, people are starting to exit the building.

I'd put Whalen in the middle to start game. She's got some height and long arms so she has a chance to defend. She's also quick, can handle the ball and shoots well. Put her in with Clemons-Green, Hall, Bell, and Reed. Our big aren't doing much to help us. Try something else.

Early in the 3Q, we cut the lead to 10, and then everything just kinda went to pieces, and at the of the quarter, we're trailing by 25 at 72-47. Demoralizing.

How many times does this admin have to touch a hot stove before they realize they will get burned ?

Just that the admin are obviously slow learners; I don't see any indication that coach is going to be successful and it may be time to look another direction.
