Feel bad for Chong on that last shot, which was started too early but might have worked out okay if William hadn't defended it so well.


I disagree with Burke and Lawson about that play. It looked to me like a foul has to be called one way or the other when there is contact like that. I think the time of the game influenced that no-call.

Typical Conway, that is why you got your ass razzed on other boards. No class. How about a mention to the great game the bulldogs play. Dope.


I got my ass razzed on other boards by you and other UConn fans because I championed the SEC in WCBB. Now it is an All-SEC Championship Finals. How bout that dope for ya??


Just shows you do not know what it is like to be a winner with class. Go look at all the posts here by UCONN fans, They all congratulated The BUlldogs. It is called being a winner even when you are on the wrong side of the score. Besides, we didn't razz you after the Gamecocks lost because you always disappeared on other boards after a defeat. LOL.

Shocking I know Wink

That team was a beast and MSU didn't have the confidence they have now. I'm not surprised UConn blew em out last year. Not surprised it was close this year.

UConn played without their usual poise. They made far too many mental errors. I expected this type of play early in the season but they waited till now.

Well, on to next year and the start of another streak. Congratulations to Miss St and especially to their coach who came up with a brilliant game plan.

YEEEE-Frickin'-HAHHH

The Absolute Deliciousness of it. Vic is genius, imo.

MISS Samuelson: I have long ago stopped 'liking' you, when you defected to the East Coast. But--you did as you needed. Your talents are many. First and foremost, Acting. But that last move was Fucked Up. Your flopping prowess (THROUGHOUT the game, imo) even fooled Doris. Rolling Eyes
With all the vicious Head Snaps you sustained, no one could possibly be anything but a quadriplegic, let alone continue playing as you always *manage* to do. Although that last one didn't quite snap your head back far enough to bite your own ass, Karma took that bite for you. Cool

Re: Miss Gabby....undeniable talent (obviously) but also loaded with petulant attitude when the chips are down. Rolling Eyes

Think we scared the landlady. My hands finally stopped trembling.

I don't even go there. Or anywhere near there. What a finish. What an unbelievable finish. Incredible grit from both teams.

And I am so, so, so glad that the game was not decided by the review- except, perhaps, in the sense that it helped cause Chong to lose track of the clock. I think that, warranted or not, that would have cast a shadow of suspicion on the sport that it doesn't need.

Also, I would like an announcing crew that doesn't call players on one team by their first names, or say UConn "finally" has a lead. Can we maybe get Thibault and Robinson to team up with Lawson and Rowe?

Honestly, I'd just like Lawson by herself.

And that's how I feel about Men's commentators too.

Just getting rid of Doris would be GREAT. Or Doris and Dave, that would be good too. But first and foremost, ESPN's UConn worship needs to stop.

I don't know why you assume that. I'm expecting MissSt to win on Sunday.


Why is that? SC beat them twice already, once without Coates.


Refs killed msu the last time chances sc will beat them three in a row are not good.


No they didn't the last game USC won by 10 and actually it was a very open game with very few fouls for both teams. I think both teams combined shot fewer than 20 FTs for the game. USC played lock-down defense in the 4th Qtr. and Miss St. missed a ton of shots at the end.

It will be a knockdown drag-out game for both teams. Winning a 3rd game in a row for USC will be very hard, and both teams know each other like a book....

Totally agree, in the Stanford game, they were taking about Tara's mother while completely ignoring the made baskets on the court. It was just typical of the coverage.

And boy did they run the "Samuelson sisters/dad traveling" into the ground! I understand, I do, but I was so tired of seeing the dad on the screen all the time! Hey, that's another plus for the championship game, yay! Laughing

Yup, that is pretty shocking, since Mississippi State has a zero percent chance of even being IN the NCAA Championship game.

the "rule" on flagrant fouls has to have a little wiggle room in it...incidental contact especially while defending with no intent whatsoever has to get a pass....

it wasn't a chop, or a slam, or a hard hit...it was a nothing....

and maybe, flopping should be looked at as a foul itself....


There was a lot about that contact that didn't look right. I wondered if maybe KLS was lifting the arm of Dillingham. Given the height difference, I can't figure out why Dillingham would even have her arm that high (5'9"-6'3"). You lose all of your power when you raise it that high. Doesn't make sense.


Now to the review. The contact occurred around :55 seconds to go. UConn got possession with :35 seconds to go. They called TO at :27 and that's when the review happened. There needs to be a way to review it sooner. (Actually it needs to be called when it happened. Two of the refs appeared to be looking right at it.)

If UConn wants a review, they shouldn't be allowed to continue play (when they got the ball at :35 seconds) and then call for a review :8 later.

Give Dillingham credit, she did look back a couple of times to, I'll assume, if she was OK. Also looked like the one ref did as well.

I just don't like that if UConn had made a basket in addition to the free throws, that MSST would have less time to score than they would have if the call had been made at the time that it happened. Seems like it really puts a team at a disadvantage and that's not officiating is supposed to do.

clearly the way to beat uconn is to get them to OT, where they suck.

cool to learn that i attended the last CT OT win, on 12/1/04, vs USF (a non-BEast member at the time.)

thoughts....well, disappointed but surprised only by how rattled Collier and Nurse were, especially, and 17-25 FT shooting.

Overall, can't be disappointed in the season, considering how I thought things would go, back in Nov.

Bye bye Saniya- thanks for those big 3s vs maryland!

Now I can watch the Championship Game. I expect it to be one hell of a game. 2 SEC teams each wanting their 1st Title.

May the best team win. It was though that neither SC or MS could beat UCon. All the talking heads were talking about UCon. MS beat them and now they are not even in the Final.

its a taught move...anything close to your neck or chin, act it up....byu's pulsipher did it all the time on her attempts at 3 points...it became a joke...

but that stuff is TAUGHT by the coaches....that immediate response fo throwing yourself back and grimacing...

and I agree about the timing....if a flagrant occurs play must be stopped immediately and the film looked at....you can't wait til the other team looses possession...

there should be no retroactive fouls....

And yes, your group razzed the Gamecocks when they lost, razzed them when they won, and razzed them in the off-season when they didn't even play - and did it to my face. Unless that waste of a board was shut down or the threads were deleted, they are still there to back me up, and prove you a liar.

And a lot of you still do it here: for every game thread of another team here that I go into and post about how "not impressed" I am with those teams - even after they win games - there are posters here who post the same thing dozens of times in South Carolina game threads. I rarely at all even bother posting in game threads here that don't include South Carolina, and those threads are still here to back me up, so you know where to shove that high horse.....

Your prepubescent post says it all as to why you get razzed all the time as it has nothing to do with the Gamecocks but you. Actually this is what you bring to all the boards you populate and it is the antithesis of what Rebkell is all about so as such I apologize to all others and move on.

It is part of the game, is taught by every coach and if their players can get away with it, then all the better in their eyes. That is why rules are in place to stop it, but sometimes, they miss it, sometimes they get it right. Novosel like UCONN players was taught how to fall back on incidental contact with the hopes of drawing a charging foul on the oppposition. It is what it is. Worst kept dirty secret in on court basketball. There was none better at than Traygeon Langdon for Duke back in 99. The NCAA because of the outcry adopted the antiflop rule but they still do it to this day.

First of all, this was a great game, congrats to Miss St. Sure Uconn didn't bring their best Collier struggled mightily as she was finally guarded unlike her run through the AAC, and I also feel sorry for Chong as her career ended on that play. William of Miss St is having a tournament to remember.

However, the sad thing is the poor sportsmanship on this board due to the hatred of 1 particular team by some of you. You wonder why our game gets less respect, it is due to the fact that some of you feel the need to constantly use jealousy of success to trash others.

The way some of you look at the game is through an envious hatred. There were lots of bad calls in this game that went against both teams, Williams could have been called for charges and prior to the flagrant there were 2 missed calls on Samuelson, 1 of which should have put her on the line for an and 1. But to actually say you hate a player when the refs miss the foul call on the play and then review later as they are required to do for the contact to above the shoulders, which by the way if you think MS State player was not trying to make contact in that area you are just biased as her arm was only there for that particular reason as she had lost Samuelson who would have had a layup.

The flagrant was called by the refs on review from all angles, if they were biased toward Uconn they would have called the obvious foul. So grow up people and show some class of your own.

I don't know, I found Lawson just as annoying as Burke. Her, "this is the biggest upset in the sport" comment really pissed me off. MSU is a damn good team. And Lawson had her UCONN pom-poms out there along with Burke. The story is great that they lost by 60 a year ago, but come on Kara!!

The UConn worship and "this is the biggest upset" must have been an edict handed down from on high by the powers that be at ESPN. They've been worshiping at Geno's throne for quite some years now.

Oh, I know it is part of the game. But some UConn fans made it their mission in life to bring it up all of the time when ND was beating them regularly.

They need to tuck their tails now and go to the dog house. Wink

This team was the record holder for a 111 win streak, and was a huge favorite to win.

As WCBB fans, we may have known better. That this was the year to get Uconn. But any casual fan would not have.

It's ESPN's job to hype their product. This is an understandable hype, and it would have been said about any team that beat Uconn.

There's also last year's 60 point beatdown. That makes this upset seem bigger.

As several people have pointed out, different teams. Both sides.

Grazed on the chin yet falls back holding her neck like she couldn't breath ,flop of the decade lol



I don't EVER want to hear UConn fans talk about ND and Natalie Novosel and flopping in the same sentence again. Not after that.

Wink


It is part of the game, is taught by every coach and if their players can get away with it, then all the better in their eyes. That is why rules are in place to stop it, but sometimes, they miss it, sometimes they get it right. Novosel like UCONN players was taught how to fall back on incidental contact with the hopes of drawing a charging foul on the oppposition. It is what it is. Worst kept dirty secret in on court basketball. There was none better at than Traygeon Langdon for Duke back in 99. The NCAA because of the outcry adopted the antiflop rule but they still do it to this day.



Oh, I know it is part of the game. But some UConn fans made it their mission in life to bring it up all of the time when ND was beating them regularly.

They need to tuck their tails now and go to the dog house. Wink



157-2, both losses in OT, 4 straight NCs, 10 straight FFs, 11 NCs.

Tail dutifully tucked. Cool

This team was the record holder for a 111 win streak, and was a huge favorite to win.

As WCBB fans, we may have known better. That this was the year to get Uconn. But any casual fan would not have.

It's ESPN's job to hype their product. This is an understandable hype, and it would have been said about any team that beat Uconn.


It absolutely would NOT have been said about "any" other team. They just didn't take upstart Miss St seriously. They haven't been WCBB royalty. This whole pitch was terribly demeaning to Miss St.

ESPN's product is sports programming, not the UConn women's basketball team.

Go sit yo azz down, UConn......


Typical Conway, that is why you got your ass razzed on other boards. No class. How about a mention to the great game the bulldogs play. Dope.


I got my ass razzed on other boards by you and other UConn fans because I championed the SEC in WCBB. Now it is an All-SEC Championship Finals. How bout that dope for ya??


Just shows you do not know what it is like to be a winner with class. Go look at all the posts here by UCONN fans, They all congratulated The BUlldogs. It is called being a winner even when you are on the wrong side of the score. Besides, we didn't razz you after the Gamecocks lost because you always dissappered on other boards after a defeat. LOL.


I went to the Miss St. and SEC boards, and congratulated them there, where they'll read it! Just like I've congratulated Miss St. all season long, which not very many here have done towards them until just a few hours ago. And yes, your group razzed the Gamecocks when they lost, razzed them when they won, and razzed them in the off-season when they didn't even play - and did it to my face. Unless that waste of a board was shut down or the threads were deleted, they are still there to back me up, and prove you a liar.

And a lot of you still do it here: for every game thread of another team here that I go into and post about how "not impressed" I am with those teams - even after they win games - there are posters here who post the same thing dozens of times in South Carolina game threads. I rarely at all even bother posting in game threads here that don't include South Carolina, and those threads are still here to back me up, so you know where to shove that high horse.....


If you'd like to be here to discuss your team in the title game, you're going to need to stop now; your sparring partner has already withdrawn and apologized.

There's no guarantee uconn will win the national championship in 2018.Sure,the huskies will get a influx of talent.But the invincibility they had prior to last nights game no longer exist.Their core group has yet to win a final four game as the primary options.Nor do they have a transcendent player who can put the team on her back and carry them to victory(Taurasi,Moore,Stewart).Despite the lost to msst,uconn will undoubtedly be the favorites.But I can see as many as 5 teams besides uconn contending for the national title next year(MSST,USC,Tennessee,Texas,Baylor).The key to any of these teams challenging uconn will be coaching.

Deshields imo will return for her senior year.

Some people need to mature and understand basketball - it's a game of life, sportsmanship and character building not a vicarious life and forum for those who have not yet reached or grown maturity enough to understand what hard work, dedication, dignity, respect, sportsmanship and so forth add to life.

Mississippi State outplayed and out-coached UConn in this game and MSU deserves all the credit for this hard fought and earned victory. Vice versa, UConn deserves the respect, admiration and recognition for their hard work, dedication, past accomplishments and sportsmanship shown in the absorption of this loss. Both teams's players, coaches and fans should rejoice in having the privilege of experiencing this game and appreciate the hard work, dedication and sacrifice undertaken to achieve this level of play and entertainment and to apply it to life's challenges and accomplishments..

Some people need to gain maturity and respect and to undertake challenges as these players did. It helps tremendously to play sports, be part of a team and face the challenges and experiences of winning and losing. It builds character. It helps get them away from trying to find fault with others, calling them haters and so forth to maybe offset personal feelings of envy, jealousy, resentment, ego deflation, personal shortcomings or other challenging conditions for which self education, training and perseverance would be more beneficial.

Let's hope that at least some will positively learn and grow from experiencing this event. Don't you think so?

Oh please. There is no need for a lecture. If you will read elsewhere, I wasn't criticizing UConn, I was criticizing ESPN for their flagrant and constant UConn worship. A very different thing. Please fold up your notes and take your lecture elsewhere, or at least don't attach it to my comment.

Wow. I didn't get to watch the game last night, but I just watched the replay of that final shot. Wow.

I didn't think MSU had a chance. I expected a UConn win by at least 20. I'm thrilled to be wrong - new blood is important for the sport.

That said, this is certainly not the biggest upset in the sport. Nothing is close to Harvard over Stanford. Even in recent years, Louisville over Baylor is bigger. There's also Duke over Tennessee in 1999.

Can you recall the last game where UConn was on the ropes in such a big stage? That may be why....


Oh, I was screaming at the refs through my television throughout because that was so obvious.

I'm starting to think maybe it wasn't the right call after all. When they went to look at the replay all I could think was "OMG, they're not going to let the players determine the outcome." But when they put up the definition on the screen, I reconsidered.

Also wasn't difficult to notice that they didn't go to a monitor on the flagrant by the Huskies in the first half. It's as if the basketball divine goddesses - and Morgan William have more power than the officials.
