This one should be good. Big Ten tournament champ vs. Big 12 tournament champ. WVU looked sort of rusty vs. Elon but they have some of the personnel that you'd think would matchup well with Maryland. They have a big 6'5 center who is sturdy and can block shots. After facing Kalani Brown and other good Big 12 posts, if she can slow down Jones for Maryland than WVU has a chance at an upset.

Yep, really looking forward to Montgomery vs Brionna Jones. A good test for both. It should have some impact on the draft, especially for Montgomery.

WVU got 3 shots on one possession, good sign hanging on the boards with Maryland but two ugly shots, I think both airballs.

9-5 WVU with 4:46 left in the 1st. Game is being played at WVU's tempo, good for them.

WVU looks like they did in the Big 12 tournament. Up 16-10 with a minute left in the 1st. Maryland's offense looks bad.

WVU hasn't scored a point in the 2nd quarter and there is already 5 minutes gone by.

Big bucket and the foul by Slocum. Tynice Martin struggling, she might have 3 airballs today.

That was a hard foul by Martin. Slocum just springs right back up.

WVU goes on a 4-0 run to end the half, but wait, Destiny Slocum looks to basically do a soccer style throw in from the opposite 3 point line and hits a 3 at the buzzer. Had to be maybe 70 feet from the hoop.

Maryland goes into the half 14 and probably kills WVU's sliver of momentum.

That's a Sports Center highlight shot of the day... maybe the year

'eers in trouble.

Paradigmatic Mike Carey teams beat good opponents by maintaining thin leads or by keeping it very close, and then winning with their defense. However, if the opponent gets a significant separation lead, a Carey team usually doesn't have sufficient offensive acceleration to catch up. UTerp may already have enough of a lead at the half.

Didn't Slocum make a shot like that in the Big Ten tournament too?

WVU is only -1 in the 3rd. They won the 1st. Its just they got killed in the 2nd quarter.

MD up 54-39 with 3:25 left in the 3rd.

Surprised the refs didn't go to the video, WVU player hit Slocum in the face, looked intentional, fighting for a loose ball.

And her performance is directly correlated to the score.

Maryland up 27, really strong showing from them. I honestly thought WVU was going to match up well but maybe I took too much stock in the Big XII Tourney instead of their complete body of work.

It is not uncommon for Tynice to shoot poorly against ranked teams, even in the Big 12 Tourney she did not shoot above 50 percent in all the games, and well below 50 percent against Oklahoma. So, it was not so much the Terps defense, just Tynice being Tynice. Their 28th in offense does not reveal the fact that they feasted on much lesser opponents but struggled against ranked teams. Today their offense which is typical against an elite team, starved. Their 109th ranked defense showed up today though. Rolling Eyes

If people here mentioned it in the past, I've missed it, but....she reminds me an AWFUL lot of Toliver: looks, style, etc. Talented.

I DID think WVU might keep this one a bit more competitive, but hellz bells....they can still feel pretty proud of their season's finish.

You may be thinking of the Shatori Walker-Kimbrough's shot from about the same spot. She was able to dribble one time and then put up a running shot that went in. Destiny has made several half court or just inside half court shots this season. Too many buzzer beaters to remember, though. She's been like that.

I love Catching's look in that video Shades posted. She looks really motherly and genuinely happy for the little shrimplet.

Shatori Walker-Kimbrough hit a similar shot against Indiana in Bloomington.

Sorry xwomynjoc, didn't see your post earlier.

The thing about it is she didn't take any running steps. It was a 3/4 court, standing stock still overhead pass at the basket. That went in, making it a shot. But she didn't even shoot the ball.

Ridiculous. Yeah.
