Me either. Based on talent alone, Ohio State should be a top 2 seed. Unfortunately, they have 0 discipline and Kelsey Mitchell has a freedom to do whatever she wants, whenever she wants to do it, with no consequence. They dribble way too much, led by her.

Will be a fascinating game where Epps and Mitchell get theirs. It depends on two things, the supporting casts and coaching. I think tOSU has a better supporting cast, but don't do anything with it....and Mitchell is a better coach.

Kentucky is at home, so I go with the Wildcats.

One thing that surprises me is that one of Muffet's people is this inept of an offensive coach and let's his team be so undisciplined.

I think OSU is favored by 3.5 which I think shows how talented they are given that they are a worse seed and playing a true road game. OSU has the size/length to disrupt Akhator with McCoy and Hart. They have multiple defenders that can pose problems for Epps, such as Doss and Epps' former teammate Harper.

When you think of all that UK has lost, and that OSU is pretty loaded, plus they added one of UK's best players, you'd think they should win. But in UK's defense they have been better than I expected this year. Their PG Murray had been injured recently so I'm not sure if she's 100% but she might be able to give Mitchell some problems because she is super fast and can get a lot of steals. She is small though so Mitchell may be able to use her bigger body to get into the paint on her.

Bad foul by Rice there, Mitchell was driving out of control, make her convert a tough shot, don't put her on the line for easy free throws.

Its basically 4 on 4 because OSU is face guarding Epps and Epps is just standing around. But Akhator is getting some good looks because they aren't doubling down off of Epps.

OSU up 12-8 with 4:54 left in the 1st. Mitchell has two long threes and 10 of the 12 points.

Don't really like either one.

Too many of the women calling NCAA games are forcing their voices up an octave or two.

No need, we can hear you. Beth Mowins' doing it right. Nell Fortner use your natural range.

Perceptive. Others, like Antonelli, shout without going up an octave.

The ne plus ultra are the Lobogasms.

Harper is killing her old team. Epps is not involved at all, why is she not getting the ball more? This can't be the first time she's been face guarded all year.

Mitchell with a big time cross over and 3 over Akhator.

Kentucky down 12 with 6:28 left in the half. Kentucky without a big game from Epps has no chance. Might as well move her to the PG spot so she can get touches.

Ohio State is another team that could have made for an exciting Final 4 participant due to their style of play. They could still make it because I think ND is the 3rd best 1 seed but I find it amazing how every challenging team outside the 1 seed line avoided Stockton. Or more directly, how South Caorlina avoided every team worth a damn.

It's scandalous quite frankly.

OSU up 15 with 4 minutes left. ESPN's games that run unopposed keeping up their track record of not being good games.

Landers just summed this game up correctly. He said Kentucky can't score enough points to keep up with OhSt at this pace.

Actually I've been really impressed with Landers in this studio role. He is knowledgeable, prepared, honest and usually right on in his commentary. I think I even prefer him to Lawson in this job.

Nell, he's already used two TO's. Do you want to use a third this close to halftime.


They changed it because at least one ref thought that it hit the rim. I thought that it might have but this angle isn't clear.

This game has looked a lot more lopsided than a 15 point margin would suggest.

OhSt may still live to regret not putting this further out of reach.

That's not to suggest 15 points isn't a big lead, just that watching the game I would think the lead was 20+.

Year after year, I have the same impression of Kentucky: poor half court offense. Oftentimes, four players are just standing around watching the fifth player dribble. No movement. No cuts. Statues.

OSU is Ruckerball.

Landers is an excellent studio analyst.

Agreed with those praising Landers. He's insightful and makes everything easy to understand. You don't win 900 games if you're stupid but some people have a harder time transitioning to the studio role than others.

I think your last point is the biggest thing. He knows the game inside and out, but he doesn't talk in coach speak, nor does he oversimplify things. He makes really good insightful and actually rather complex points, but he delivers them very conversationally. Most ex-coaches can't pull that off and end up delivering platitudes or clich├ęs.

The renowned Dee Kantner, one of two women to have reffed the NBA, looks darn good for 57.

Matthew Mitchell's voice is similar to Bill Clinton.

Cann passed up what looked like an open layup, dribbled in a circle, made the lay up and got fouled.

Kentucky was on a run but Mitchell just hit a big bucket and drew the foul. She gets down the court so quickly.

As good as it seems like Kentucky has played this quarter, they have only been +3, so OSU has to be feeling good because they've handled a UK potential run.

Waterman fouls a UK player 90 feet from the hoop when they are in the bonus. Can't just concede easy points like that to a team trying to come back.

Maybe that's why Fortner doesn't coach anymore.

Her advice " they need to just clear out and let Epps take her shot."

Or, you know, they might run a play, or set a screen or drive and dish, or do something other than play 1 on 5.

How does Calhoun drive into Akhator and nothing is called. I don't get how you can avoid a charge or block right under the hoop like that.

They've been hesitant to call that all day. The only time it was a foul was when Mitchell got her 3rd and it was blatant.

At least Ohio State held for the last shot that time Rolling Eyes

Well that was kind of a late call on McCoy. Sort of like the ref was waiting to see if the shot went in before deciding whether to call it.
