I think this game is definitely an upset watch.

Gustafson got an early foul leading with the arm.

Cunningham picks up her third foul with a little over 2:00 remaining in the first half. Robin Pingeton is not Brian Agler, so she comes out.

Cunningham not being very disciplined on defense today. Picks up her third foul in the first half.

Yeah, cuz Iowa shot too early. This happens too much, imo.

Apparently Cunningham thinks whacking the shooter in the face isn't a foul.

Btw, who says she so smart? Laughing

I predict Sophie will foul out early to midway through the 4Q.

I'd say there's not enough to say she didn't beat the shot clock.

They let the clock run too long when it was smacked out of bounds on the Iowa baseline.

It should have stopped around 38.4, but it didn't stop until 37 seconds. That might have given Iowa ~4 seconds instead of 2.2 seconds.

(Mostly) interesting game. I like both teams, but had my (pretend) money on Iowa.

I took advantage of this matchup to really analyze something that bothers me in wbb, with the athleticism that is present. In the first half, I was watching Porter on Gustafson. I picked one particular shot--a 7 footer, maybe--that Megan sank, despite Sierra's *contesting* of it.

I hit pause, and replayed it in slo-mo several times to verify what I thought I was seeing: PORTER'S FEET NEVER LEFT THE FLOOR, yet her fingers were an inch from the ball. In other words, you have 2 equal-sized centers, and the defensive player could have easily blocked a score IF SHE'D HAVE JUST GIVEN A 5 INCH VERTICAL LEAP. It probably happened 8 more times in the game. Ruth Hebard is obvious in that way, too, and I imagine a whole bunch of others: height is a great advantage on defense down low, BUT AN EFFORT TO LEAP VERTICALLY, a la a volleyball blocker at the net, could be even more effective. Must not be coached much these days. Oh, well. My 2 cents for the day. Keep the change.

Porter has had like a gazillion knee surgeries. It sounds as if it is a miracle that she can run let alone jump.

She'll be having both knees replaced by the time she's 40.

Porter and her siblings have had so much bad luck with injuries.

That's undoubtedly a huge factor for the kid....and kudos to her for making the comeback. But I see that in most post players....the unwillingness to leap vertically to block.

I DID see just that very thing tonight when shorty Jaelyn Penn (IN) blocked Sabrina (OR) twice on a jump shot. Shorter than her but made the block anyways. That girl had hops, and made it count.

That makes me think there's something genetic going on...probably a similar structural anomaly.
