I am WORRIED about this one. Any team that can shoot 3's like that....and dribble penetrate, is so dangerous. I think this game will be very close.

Maybe close for much of the first half but it'll still be a blowout when all is said and done.

UConn beat down Cuse by 31 points last year, when the Orange had a better team and the Huskies were hampered by chucker Stewart, ball hog Jefferson and ponderous Tuck.

Plus, the game will be played on UConn's home court in front of a half full arena of rabid Medicare recipients.

Proud Mary will keep on burnin'.

Teams tend not to duplicate halves like the Orange had. Samuelson followed up her 10-10 game with a 2-7 game. That's not to say that Syracuse can't score a lot or even win but I just can't see the Day's being able to handle Collier/Williams in Storrs.

Syracuse made it all the way to the finals last year, sad they will not make it past the second round. Who knows, maybe they will pull it off and win 👍🏼

I'm usually pretty quiet about the UConn matchups and I'm sure I'll catch hell for this, but seriously...

F--- Syracuse! I hope UConn runs up the score on them. It gives me great joy every time UConn curbstomps them, especially since Hillsman is such a sore loser.

May Syracuse forever be irrelevant as long as he is their coach. Maybe he should focus more on coaching and less on fashion, then maybe he can be a little bit more like Geno.

I disagree.... I've seem Hillsman's outfits. I think he SHOULD focus more on fashion.

My main concern, besides possible injuries,is the officiating. They can skew any game. What was it, 52 foul calls in 40 minutes in the Texas/NCS game? Not to mention some of the other officiated playoff games.

I hope whip around coverage moves off this game soon. Yeah I can watch the others online but ESPN3 is so far behind the actual game its no fun because you look at the TV you can see the score.

All 3 other games are close. Let's see how long ESPN takes..

As much as I'd like to see more parity in the women's game, watching UConn play as well as they did in the first quarter is pretty amazing.

At the half Syracuse leads Nurse 29-26

Where is that thread where some here had Nurse pegged as an end-of-bencher? Rolling Eyes

Nurse has taken 12 shots and has 29 points.

. . . rollin', rollin' . . .

The best ball-handling, move-without-the-balling, scoring-passing team in UConn history.

All of the first six can read, seed, lead and feed the fast break.

Its absurd ESPN is sticking with this game when UT-UL is so close. Unless you live in NY or CT they should move on, which is what the game maps show, "whip around coverage" outside of NY/CT for this game.

LOL, now they say they will show us the Tenn game AFTER UConn game is over. UConn is up 33. Just drop the whip around name if you never switch to other games. Showing 10 seconds of highlights ever quarter is not whip around.

The fact that we were FORCED to watch this goddam game in its entirety here in Virginia is proof that ESPN is actually CSPN when it comes to the women's NCAA. Whip around, my sainted Aunt Matilda!

We live in a rural area. The Man works at home and his livelihood depends on reliable internet connection. Satellite is not that. We have figured it every which way from Sunday and it is not economically sensible to do satellite for one and Comcast for the other.

If you have Comcast or any other provider (as long as that provider has ESPN), you have the ability to get the WatchESPN app on any other devices you may have...ROKU, SmartTV, Tablet...etc...etc. so you can watch any game of your choice in full stream.

You stick to watching the basic ESPN, ESPN2 channels, you're at the mercy of watching what they want you to watch.

The only thing I'll say about streaming is that ESPN3 has been having connection issues this tournament with some providers. During conference tournament time, it was great- we were wielding the app and the remote simultaneously to keep track of multiple games. But it's not as reliable as actual television.

And there's the simple solution!

Buy a ROKU. I have the stick. It works very well. Plus, it has more peripheral WCB content such as highlights, interviews, etc., than what WATCHESPN gives me on the laptop. (At least, this other content is easier to find via ROKU).

Or buy an HDMI cable and connect your PC to the TV.

To bitch and moan while having both an ESPN TV provider AND a good internet connection is pointless. Unless of course the whole point is just to bitch and moan.

This is about $$$$$$, which every media outlet is. If you want the tournament shown at all, then you have to take this sort of thing in stride, IMO. ESPN has to have something to latch on to for this thing to be profitable.

Casual fans(that they're trying to gain) aren't going to tune in to watch any game....but UCONN.

I understand the frustration.

As an addendum, might I interest any of you next year to visit your local Buffalo Wild Wings. We have the ability to show every women's tournament game in it's entirety. And believe me, at the one I'm the GM of, they were all on!

No, it doesn't . . . though I recall your having trouble with it about three websites ago.

With the multiscreen launcher you can have four games on the screen at the same time, or enlarge any one you want (with another in a thumb nail screen), or watch one game while listening to another, or whip yourself around full screen to whichever game you want.

For UConn, the WatchESPN service also has the SNY games for replay after they are over.

With my laptop 15" from my face on a Laptop Laidback, it's the same effect as having a 15' screen on my wall.

Of course, my actual TV is so old that it has no computer inputs and I have to use binoculars to see anything on it.

There are very few TV shows, TV series or movies I watch that I can't get for free via computer without any special devices at all.

I remember the 4 screen on the PC, too bad they don't have same option on the ROKU...but that would require internet download speed.

By the looks of things some couldn't even get 1 screen to watch on a constant basis, with bad reception and all that.

Whip-around is over now. On Friday, one of the 7:00 PM games is on ESPN and the other is on ESPN2. One of the 9:00 PM games is on ESPN and the other is on ESPN2.

On Saturday, all 4 games have their own separate time slot. 8 hours of basketball.
