Wow what a game. I usually don't watch UCon play because they always beat the other team so badly. I said I would watch the beginning and if UCon was way ahead in the 1st quarter I would turn it off. This was a good game, very competitive so I watched. I wonder what all the UCon fans are saying now. They have been all over facebook, spending lots of time telling us what Ucon was going to do to other teams and how UCon would crush them all.

Opps, that didn't happen.

Why does the #1 recruit in the country Megan Walker ride the bench and not even play in this game??
Have feeling she is not long for UCONN as I would not take that kind of disrespect from Geno.

Yeah, the Boneyard predictions were that UConn would win by 20.

After all, in the first game, Gabby had a migraine and another player didn't play much. Sorry, blanking a bit. Too many Black Smiths... Wink

ND better thank Daddy Shepard's lawyer for the semifinal win by getting drama diva eligible for this season. Surprised she actually lasted a whole game since she begged for subs at UNL. Muffett is the biggest snake ever for getting a waiver..congrats Miss State on your national championship on Sunday! No way they'll let these sellouts from ND win


Since I know very little about basketball, I still want to know how Nebraska went from 3-13 to 11-5 this year after losing Shephard, or did Shephard only become good enough to help her team win games this year?

Edit: We all know Notre Dame won this game because I picked Notre Dame to lose in the second round because I'm a hater. Very Happy


We all know that South Dakota State would've won that game had they not run into the Villanova buzzsaw. Cleary, Notre Dame should send the committee flowers for not sending Stanford their way too.

Laughing

I'm very impressed by the quality of the games tonight, and both games were intense. It's very clear that these four teams were just above everyone else this season.

Oh piss, your little USD team can't even win in the Summit League tourney so quiet. As per Huskers, it makes a difference when you get rid of a diva like Shepard. They were glad to get rid of her! I'll give Muffett this much, she actually got the lazy beast playing some what hard


This is just downright insulting. Really? Who are you to comment on why Shephard left Nebraska and went to Notre Dame? Maybe it had something to do with the fact that the coach that recruited Shephard left and after sticking it out for a season, she decided to leave. Heck, I don't think that you have any right to use the derogatory language towards a heck of a player who played hard for the Cornhuskers and the circumstances around her departure are not entirely public.

As for South Dakota, the 'Yotes had a heck of a season, and just because you're bitter and on some high horse doesn't give you a right to rain on everyone else's parade.

Yeah because it's not like ND is really good on offense or anything. They scored more points in the first 3 games of the Tournament of any of the Elite Eight teams, after all. OT also helps.

You know C, you should take a page from Arti and learn to win or lose with dignity for when you mentions the morons at the Boneyard it is like the old saying "Never wrestle with pigs, you get dirty and pigs like it."

Congratulations Notre Dame on your win tonight. It was great to watch a player from Milwaukee have a great game. Too bad Marquette and the UW can't do a better job of recruiting to keep these great basketball players to play in their home state of Wisconsin.

Yeah, I've seen so much of that from UConn over the years.

Some of the Boneyard comments?

"ND has never beaten UConn! UConn just lost!"
There's all the "ND only wins if the refs are against us!"
"ND only wins due to flopping!"

CTH once told me that ND would never win a 2nd NC. I said, "Never means never ever. That's a long time. Do you mean that?" He said, "Yeah, okay. Never."

Now I've been very good friends with many UConn fans and for those fans I'll say, " Hey great game! Your team played really hard and they're really talented."

However, here is a counter to your comment. When UConn beat ND, where were you? Were you telling your own to knock it off attacking ND? Or do you only chastise fans of other teams? Were you telling Glenn that he shouldn't keep talking about how ND players are "chunky and slow?" Isn't that also a part of winning with dignity?

As for losing with dignity, I have tried, as best I could to post congratulatory messages to teams that beat ND, so I don't know what you mean on that front.

The reason why Uconn has somewhat come back to the pack is that they no longer have the undisputed best player in the country(Moore,Stewart,Taurasi,Charles,Lobo)...Gabby,Samuelson,Collier,and Stevens are very good offensive players.But they all lack the ability to individually take over a basketball due to limitations in their games.

A'ja Wilson received 22 of 32 votes for the Player of the Year. The next closest player received 5 votes. That's pretty darn undisputed.....

Amen. 16 years later and ND is still w/ only 1. They haven't won #2 yet, and even if they do Sunday, I can live w/ 1 ND NC every 17 years.

Btw folks, CB once told me that ND was a program that paralleled UConn. Laughing

Maybe not,but who on this Uconn team can take over a basketball game offensively on command ?

It is not my responsibility to police other people's comments. It is my responsibility to comport myself with as much dignity as possible and I believe in previous posts, especially regarding showing my respect for ND including tonight, I have done that.

Thinking about this, how is pointing out really bad predictions by the opposition's fans "not winning with dignity?"

I wasn't saying that ND kicked UConn's ass. I wasn't saying anything about their own team. I was pointing out that many of their FANS made very bad predictions. And it wasn't like these fans were suggesting that UConn would just beat ND (I wouldn't have an argument there. They are UConn fans after all). No, it was that they were predicting blowouts. Against a team that they beat by 9 at home!

If you beat a team by 9 at home and then predict a huge blowout at a neutral site, you deserve ridicule if it ends up going into OT. That's the way sports comment boards work.

Mabrey is a deceptively good passer. She often looks slow and uncomfortable bringing the ball up, but man, she sure does make a handful of sweet passes every game.

Kudos to the Irish!!


Are people going to stop talking about UConn being bad for wbb now?

I agree with this. They don't have a transcendant player to take over games. And, while WCBB is about as top heavy as ever, there are these days at least a handful of teams with elite talent capable of winning.

(BTW, I remain of the view that Collier is the best overall player on the team.)

Won't make a damn bit of difference as Crystal, deer in the headlights, Dangerfield will be at the point, no perimeter defenders, no floor leadership. Maybe in a couple of years if they get a new pg and find a player with the chutzpah to get up in another player's grill. They say Williams has that quality but she is just a freshman and would not have made a difference tonight. Again a couple of years. Do you see Walker staying - I don't.

Yes. Listen to the announcers. ND and UConn are great passing teams. ND and UConn are the top 2 teams in the nation. ND and UConn are tops in assists...

Sounds very similar. It took longer to get there that I thought it would but, IMO, it did happen.

For the record, when I said that UConn had 2, working on 3 NCs. And UConn didn't have a "further along UConn" to deal with.

Take UConn from 2013-14 and transport them back to 2000. Take each successive team for the next five years and have the past UConn team play them. How many NCs would UConn have from 2000-05? Probably as many as ND did against those teams.

Wait, if it's not your responsibility to police other's comments, then why did you police mine?

So basically, you are saying that if a UConn fan says something that's bad, you shouldn't be responsible for that, but if a fan of another team does, then it's okay?



Sorry, but that doesn't fly. You are only attacking fans of other teams for bad behavior? Before you can do that, you should police your own, or just not attack fans of other programs for their opinions.

Just want to suggest a possible answer to the "Why didn't Geno play Azura Stevens more?" question here.

Maybe she's not fully conditioned? This isn't an attack on her. This is a possible reason. She averaged 20 mpg over the season. She's 6'6". Why wouldn't you play here more?

Maybe he was saving her. It's kind of like how ND would often have poor first halves later this year because they were saving the players from foul trouble. McGraw would often make sure that Shepard got plenty of rest periods during games. Granted Shepard ended up playing most of this game, but that isn't usual.

It's possible that Auriemma was thinking that if he played Stevens too much early, then she'd either be in foul trouble or tired during crunch time.

As it was his decision did end up with the game in OT and it coming down to a last second shot.

Azura is tall and talented but she's also a bit prone to make the wrong decision at a crucial time. I think he just went with those he's more comfortable with.

I will miss seeing both Gabby and Kia and think the team/fans will perhaps miss them more than they might think now. They're both just really solid players; both good defenders; and Gabby is a great facililtator on offense while Kia has knocked down some big threes in her career. It's always kinda sad to see the seniors go...from whatever team, but at least these will have a good chance to play at the next level. I wish them well.

Amazing how close to tying the game UConn was in that final 1 second. At least it looked like Samuelson's show got off before the buzzer. Shepard unintentionally tipped it right to Samuelson. Had Shepard been one foot different either way, she would have either missed it and it would have gone out of bounds or batted it down. It was one of the few ways that you could get a shot off from inside 15 feet on the other end of the court with 1 second left.

Jackie Young got in position to try and rebound Obunbawale's winning shot if it missed and Crystal Dangerfield got up against her to jockey for position, and Dangerfield won, pushing Young behind the basket.

It's going to be a long day today, but it was totally worth it.

What great games last night.

I hope that Beth (I saw her scouting last night, so I'm assuming it will be her scout) comes up with a way to contain TM. She scares me. I kept thinking during that game that if I was ND, I might rather play L'ville.

The X factor for Sunday is McCowan. If she gets 20/20 again, that might decide it.

In regards to UConn, I think the shift to a weaker conference has hurt them. They steamrolled everyone in the regular season and then when they have their backs up against the wall, they lose. Team just in accustomed to being in a losing situation.

Despite Connecticut having their flaws,the ND players and coaching staff deserves all the credit in the world.Muffet has created an elite level program,and is without a doubt one of the top 5 or 6 coaches in College basketball.Kudos to Jackie Young.Arike Ogunbowale,Jessica Shepard,and the rest of the ND basketball team.

In an OT game won by 2 on an 18' shot w/ 1 second left by a shooter who was 8-20 before shooting, whose team, which had choked away a nearly insurmountable lead in the final 30 seconds of regulation, then survives a hurried but very close shot attempt to tie the game at the buzzer, neither coach nor team can be lauded for outcoaching or outplaying the other, imo.

ND won. Survive and advance.

All the rest of the conclusions are bs, imo. Very Happy

Is she wrong? Geno has made these types of statements all his career. Is she suppose to say there better? Confidence is what got them the win and what seperates ND from the rest of WCBB when it comes to facing UCONN.

While I like most of the players on UConn team, the one whose attitude kinda sticks is KLS. Aside from the flopping, she has this arrogant, entitled 'we win because we are UConn' attitude. So for her especially, it's good to lose. JMO.

The reason why Uconn has somewhat come back to the pack is that they no longer have the undisputed best player in the country(Moore,Stewart,Taurasi,Charles,Lobo)...Gabby,Samuelson,Collier,and Stevens are very good offensive players.But they all lack the ability to individually take over a basketball due to limitations in their games.


Is there an undisputed best player in the country anymore?


A'ja Wilson received 22 of 32 votes for the Player of the Year. The next closest player received 5 votes. That's pretty darn undisputed.....


A'ja definitely was. She just didn't have the TEAM around her that either ND or UConn or Miss State or Louisville had. That's the difference.TEAM.

I've been out and about today. I've had conversations with probably 50 people. I'd say that 45 of them talked to me about the game (I was wearing a Notre Dame jacket and some of the people knew that I was a Notre Dame women's bball fan before today).

It was amazing how many of them said that they stayed up and watched the game. At least half of them watched all or part of it. I'd say that at least 10 knew enough to talk about specific players and plays. None of the people that I talked to live in South Bend, but I'd guess that most are in the South Bend TV/media market. A fair number of the people that I talked to are senior, senior citizens!

Anybody else wonder what DB's facial expression was last night? Similar to last year's? Very Happy

Wait, if it's not your responsibility to police other's comments, then why did you police mine?

So basically, you are saying that if a UConn fan says something that's bad, you shouldn't be responsible for that, but if a fan of another team does, then it's okay?



Sorry, but that doesn't fly. You are only attacking fans of other teams for bad behavior? Before you can do that, you should police your own, or just not attack fans of other programs for their opinions.
No, C it was directed at you not to attack you if you can not see the difference. just saying it is better to take the high road. Never intended as a rebuke but to say your team won kudos to them, leave the Boneyard out of it as they are not worth mentioning as it only obscures a great ND victory. Just go with the celebration and to hell with them. Enjoy C.

Lawson has a hell of a poker face. No emotions during those final seconds.

If you're talking about me, I based what I said on an interview I saw with her, and she pretty much said word for word what I said, and in a manner that could hardly be interpreted otherwise. I guess you could interpret it as confidence rather than arrogance. But I personally prefer to see kids who give credit to teammates, and who look like they mean it when they talk about opponents being tough. Maybe she just hasn't learned the art of interviews like Collier, Nurse, and Williams who I think always come across as relatively humble. And the flopping part is on display for everybody to see. I guess you could question if I would say the same thing if she had gone to Stanford instead... and I don't actually know the answer to that but would hope my response wouldn't be much different.

Lawson lookslike Doris Burke did last year when Itty Bitty pulled the original upset.

Lobo mouths (or her mic was cut off) "what the" and that's all I got before her head tips forward and her mic was in front of her mouth. Smile

Lawson looked speechless, like she was looking for someone to pop out and say "April Fools".

AA looked like someone who just got the news that a loved one had died. Could anyone read Kara's lips and what she said to him when she gave him the thumbs up?

I could watch this all day!!!! Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing
