Except for the pair of one year mercenaries last year (who arrived already developed for her by other coaches), when has Dawn EVER had any guards? SCar's total lack of competent guard play has been a perrenial issue.

For someone who was a terrific point guard, she sure can't develop or coach point guards.

SCar shooting 56% and down 21 points. Very unusual.

It seemed like for most of the 1H UConn was face guarding the two SCar guards MTM while the other three played an amoeba triangle. It worked to stop the guards but not really to stop the posts.

UConn's best instinctive passer, KLS, has six assists in the half.

Is this when we should start questioning truly how "Good" of a coach Dawn might be ? She lucked up with a transcendent player who happened to be from the schools home state , and has yet to produce a life after Aja ? Then a performance like this seems lackluster. Duke at least put up a fight


truth be told they lost two players early last yr
and lost the only offensive minded G span
they have no offense other than post players and cant defend the 3 point line


Is it safe to say dawn CANNOT recruit ? Even with Span they would still be offensively challenged . Span played in the 1st game and the results were the same . They also lucked up with those 2 players they lost last year as they were "Transfers" versus recruits brought in . Hell knowing the history down in Columbia thats their version of recruiting .


with span there wouldn't be 4 ppl in the paint waiting for aja is what im saying she was one person that. they also lost the other Bianca girl

geno has all-American recruits siting on the bench
both freshman lele and Bianca look good but are freshman didnt expect them to come out banging .


With span or Cuevas the outcome would still be the same . See game 1 this year , See Every game the last 4 years. Even with the transfers , no excuses anymore for Dawn.


Dawn builds her defense for the SEC where outstanding 3 pt shooting is as rare as a virgin in a whore house.

And when UConn goes 9-10 from 3 in a half who the hell is going to stay with them? When UConn is shooting like tonight they don't lose.

The outcome isn't in doubt. The only drama left is what Dawn is going to whine about and blame it on post game.


it's true. I didn't used to dislike her but she has really become a whiner. And she'll whine for the whole next year about being in the Albany bracket. But next year I doubt they'll be a two. Of course they could still get stuck in UConn's bracket as a #4 or #5. Razz If I were on the committee I'd probably be inclined to do that. Of course they might schedule all cupcakes OOC to hopefully get a higher seed.

I still think it would have been fairer to put them in Lexington, Texas in Albany, and Baylor in KC...but regardless of placement, I hate to see a coach whine about it. And L'ville would also have cleaned their clock so it ultimately didn't matter. That 0-1 from three is maybe the most telling stat about SoCar. And what would/will they do without A'ja?


They will rely on those great guards dawn has recruited Laughing

I just hope A'ja doesn't get injured. That would be a travesty. At least UConn is not a 'dirty' team so hopefully...

In the 2H, SCar has a much better probability of keeping up their effective post scoring than UConn keeping up the supernatural 2pt shooting.

Katie Lou reminds me so much of Nicole Powell when she would catch and shoot at Stanford.

Wow. Samuelson was actually set and actually got hit on that last charge call. That might be a first.

This is a complete travesty . UCONN cant miss from 3 and South Carolina still has not figured out how to defend the perimeter. Maybe after the 25th 3-pointer they might make a change ? Embarassed

Gabby Williams made an outside shot, but she looked an awful lot like Alyssa Thomas shooting a free throw.

Well it's likely they won't keep this hot shooting for the semifinals and it might make it more competitive.

Maybe when Dawn puts in #8.

Where were you yesterday when Miss St's 6th player got 11 minutes and the other 5 bench players that got in the game combined to play a total of 4 min?

In an interview just yesterday, Dawn seemed to brag about how she didn't have to climb the usual college coaching ladder. Maybe she should have?

Staley said "fortunately for me, I didn't go through the ranks of being a grad assistant and assistant coach up through there. I was given an opportunity because somebody saw something in me that I didn't see in myself."

Im hoping not . ND has a bit more pride at the guard spot to defend UCONN . To be honest if they shoot like this no one will beat this team .

It's always been my experience that the losing coach should concede defeat and take out their starters first.

But don't worry, the refs are doing a good job of reducing the deficit by closing their eyes to S car's hacking and pushing off.

In all fairness, she should at least get a little bit of credit for Tiffany Mitchell.

So many folks craping on Dawn. She had every right to complain about their placement. I as a fan knew they would not beat UCon and so did she. The committee screwed them and did it on purpose for the 3rd time in a row. They wouldn't have won anyway even with their fans there but they might have done a little better. Turnovers did them in as well as poor shooting and I am a Gamecocks fan who is only still watching this game because it is the last college game A'ja will play. She DID win a Championship, which many others have never done. I know she is disappointed but she has done everything for SC. Bless you A'ja and the best of luck in the W. Well done my friend.

Now my hope is for Mississippi State to get to the Final 4.

Agreed. Getting sent to to the Northeast to play UConn in front of a UConn crowd has proven to be a losing cause. The committee sent Texas and UCLA there twice recently and now sent the defending champs there. Coincidentally they have kept Tenn out of that region for 9 years now. So don't try and say they don't play favorites.

They are / were the defending champs , they should not be afraid to play anyone and thats exactly what it seemed like after the brackets came out. Sounds like Game cock fans wanted the committee to give them the easy draw they got last year to get to a FF again , Committee says no no you need to earn it this season & their true talent got exposed. Congrats to Aja she will have a great WNBA career .

A shout out to Gabby Williams, who's game tonight was lost in the shine of Dangerfield's fire. Gabby scored a smooth 23 on 11-18 along with 5 boards, 5 assists, 2 steals and a block.

South Carolina had to be sent to Albany in order to have Oregon in Spokane without messing up the bracket by, say, having the top #2 seed (Baylor) in the same region as the #2 overall seed (Miss St).

Edit: Does anybody think South Carolina would've beaten Lousiville anyways?

Who said they were afraid to play anyone. That was not the complaint at all, the complaint was sending them so far from home for the 3rd time. Wonder how UCon fans would have liked to be sent far away, which by the way they have not been. So don't try to put it out there that they were afraid, that was never said.

Maybe somebody near South Carolina should have put in a bid to host a region so South Carolina could play near home for a change, but weren't North Carolina & South Carolina banned from hosting regionals when they set the locations for regions through this year or am I off?

As Crystal goes so goes UCONN. She has been playing poorly recently and the offense Saturday was lackluster to say the least. There was plenty of evidence to suggest should Crystal not perform well, it would be a close game. She came out, lit up the house and the rest is history. Going forward, I shall stand by that premise that UCONN takes its energy from Crystal and the results will be favorable. If not, the outcome will always be in doubt.

I agree somewhat but only because other teams see her as the weakest link. They have to help out on Collier/Williams/Stevens inside, won't leave Samuelson for a second and can't give Nurse open looks from 3 . So Dangerfield gets less attention and as we saw tonight, some wide open shots.

Not really talking about her offensive output as the fifth option but as the floor leader getting all the other pieces to play seamlessly together. She makes everyone better.

You'll have to explain the "3rd time in a row". They got a total gift last year. One of the easiest routes to the title in recorded history.

She's not entitled to any special treatment just because she's got the loudest mouth. No one likes being put in UConn's bracket. But 15 teams are every year. They wouldn't have beaten any of the other #1s anyhow. Maybe they wouldn't have been as badly embarrassed, but their tournament was ending this weekend regardless of their region.

So many folks craping on Dawn. She had every right to complain about their placement. I as a fan knew they would not beat UCon and so did she. The committee screwed them and did it on purpose for the 3rd time in a row. They wouldn't have won anyway even with their fans there but they might have done a little better. Turnovers did them in as well as poor shooting and I am a Gamecocks fan who is only still watching this game because it is the last college game A'ja will play. She DID win a Championship, which many others have never done. I know she is disappointed but she has done everything for SC. Bless you A'ja and the best of luck in the W. Well done my friend.

Now my hope is for Mississippi State to get to the Final 4.


You'll have to explain the "3rd time in a row". They got a total gift last year. One of the easiest routes to the title in recorded history.

She's not entitled to any special treatment just because she's got the loudest mouth. No one likes being put in UConn's bracket. But 15 teams are every year. They wouldn't have beaten any of the other #1s anyhow. Maybe they wouldn't have been as badly embarrassed, but their tournament was ending this weekend regardless of their region.

SC would've had a better shot at beating a team that they split with like Miss. St than any of the other 3 #1s. Louisville and SC would've been an interesting matchup especially if Wilson could've withstood the physical play of Louisville's post players.

ok, how many points do they need to be ahead to see player #8 for UConn?

Maybe when Dawn puts in #8.

This isn't a teaching or training game. It's a kill dead dead dead game.


It didn't use to be like that. It was just a "pull starters when game is a blowout and not enough time for a miracle comeback" game. Do you enjoy it better as a "kill dead dead dead" game?

Did that look as good on TV as it did in person?

Looks like the GCocks were just what the doctor ordered.

ConwayGamecock likely gone until November.

Did any of the media folk ask Dawn about her "game plan" of wasting half the shot clock in the first quarter? Question
