I thought Iowa would dominate buy Creighton is playing great defense and cleaning up the defensive boards.

Iowa just looks like a one woman show...with a bit of support.
Creighton doesn't really have a superstar but they play good team ball.

SO ...I lost a bet with Rock about how many wins Chicago would get this year. My punishment - T. Young as my avatar. Well it could be worse!

If either team plays like this in the next round, I doubt they advance.

yeah, I think UCLA is licking their lips. But then UCLA can also sometimes disappear in big games so it's always an adventure.

UCLA will certainly have the athleticism advantage.

Agreed. Watching them in person and Creighton doesn't look all that impressive but they are defensively where they need to be and the big surprise is how well they're rebounding. Iowa has plenty of size inside but they have very few second chances. As soon as Iowa scores, the Blue Jays have an answer.

I really don't know why Creighton isn't doubling her. Put a defender in front so she can't catch the ball. Dare somebody else to beat you.

I forget how athletic Ucla can look seeing these two. Creighton gave them fits earlier this year though.

They've been doubling her all game otherwise, she would have 40. She's gotten free a few times. She is super strong and has overpowered the Creighton players. Overall, they're doing a good job.

I'm mostly watching the Stanford game so maybe missed some of it but every time I saw them double it looked late after she already had the ball and I never saw them fronting her.

The calls have definitely been going Creighton's way.

I'm impressed by Stewart. They should've played her more over Coley.

Creighton did miss some assignments in the fourth. But luckily for them, they've been able to respond when Gustafson scores.

I'm surprised Iowa is not a better three-point shooting team. Seems they have one or two players who are dangerous but most of the guards dribble drive.

This is Chiney on the color, isn't it? She really needs some polishing.

Woo hoo - way to go Creighton! That makes it 4-0 for the Big East in the first round.
