Anyone know if Williams is returning for this game, it being a home game?

I'm picking whoever the Liberty are playing for the rest of the season. Yes, I'm superstitious.

Williams is back. As is Alyssa Thomas. Both are at the season ticket holder event tonight and practiced with their male practice players.

Obviously odds are against us winning. But I’ll settle for hitting some open looks and doing some little things on defense to keep CT under 90 points, if possible.

I'm not, but I'll try to be:

Bria Hartley's rocking some new braids. Perhaps this signals the start of a new era of Liberty dominance! BELIEVE IN THE HAIRDO!!!

Only 7 turnovers so far for the Liberty.

Zahui having a better game than Charles. Might as well pull Zahui now.

Uncanny how many times when we yield an offensive rebound and it gets kicked out it results in a made 3.

Boyd playing well 2 points, 4 assists. Zahui playing well on offense but D and rebounding leaving something to be desired.

Zahui has two blocks, only player to have a block for the Liberty.

Excellent first quarter for Zahui B. Lots of offense, and more great post D. She's surprising me with her post defense; one poster here said I was underestimating it, and I'm beginning to hope that I was wrong.

Very few minutes for Kia Nurse, and none for Kiah Stokes. You're playing the wrong Kia(h), Katie! Smile

Clarendon's first shot as a Sun goes down.

So Sugar Rodgers made a long 2 pointer in the first quarter. After last game where they missed open three after open three, I began to wonder if taking a few more long 2s instead of 3s might get everyone's outside shooting back on track. Isn't the college 3 pointer a little bit shorter? Maybe what I'm suggesting would help Kia Nurse. She came in with the reputation of being the best 3 point shooter in the draft. Maybe she should get comfortable with a slightly shorter shot, and then maybe try to extend it back.

I know that extra point is valuable when you make the three, but the way things are going now, 2 points are better than no points. And made long 2s would stop defenses from collapsing on Tina and the lane almost as well as made 3s.

Crazy, or a worth a try? I'd like to see the Liberty try something; our perimeter shooting is staggeringly bad.

Someone needs to tell Prince to aim for the right rim. She seems to be just a tad left on every shot. Very Happy

From a math standpoint long 2s are the worst shot. Not only because the minor accuracy increase doesn’t justify the chance for one less point but also because 2s are generally more contested than 3s.

This is the best game defensively the Libs have played in a long time. Probably all season. I’m pleased they are playing with pride. I’ll watch hard work, effort and intensity all day, 5-14 or not.

Normally this is true. However, I am suggesting that in this instance (with the Liberty 3 point shooting so bad), perhaps there would be a larger than normal accuracy increase.

Piph switch on Chiney. You’d think she’d just drive.

Why don’t we get those calls with contact when we shoot jumpers and fall? I’m done with the officiating this year man.

Great play design and sub of Boyd there.

Zellous banks a three for the buzzer-beating win for Liberty.
