    Women's game vs Arkansas (8:00 pm)

    The 6:00 game is Alabama at Texas A&M, and Alabama at the half is blowing them out, and A&M's star player is playing.

    Maybe us losing to Alabama last Sunday wasn't that much of a fluke.

    I don't know if I've ever seen a team worse at 3 point shooting than our women's team. We are terrible at it.

    Despite an RPI in the 80s a week ago, Alabama is suddenly making a run at an at-large bid. Would take a little sting out of losing to them.

    Their RPI (52) is now better than our men's team NET (54).

    Did you watch the Alabama/A&M game? A&M's Carter is a dirty player. Got a T on one big shove that almost injured an Alabama girl.

    Matharu, and to a lesser degree Hunter, shooting has been huge. It spaces the floor and gives us an added element offensively that we haven't had. Both need more minutes

    Arkansas seems to shoot a much higher percentage from 3 point range than they do on 2 point FGs. When is the last time they missed a 3 pointer?

    Really good bounce back win for the Lady Dogs. Still stings that we let the Bama game get away from us given we had a double digit 4th Q lead but if we wrap up the regular season with 5 losses that still a really good year given the youth of the team. That 2nd half is the best we've shot from the outside in a long time. Our offense would go to another level if we can hit more 3s when they are available.

    At the end of the day the Bama loss may do more good than harm for us. Didn’t really hurt us from a seeding standpoint in the NCAA or SEC Tourneys and we had a really nice response tonight. To beat a good team with Rickea in a limited role is impressive.

    Feels like we may have locked up a 3 seed tonight barring an all-time upset in Oxford on Sunday. I’m not sure we could move up to a 2 seed unless we win the SEC Tourney. Looking like we will be on the same side of the bracket as Kentucky so we have a chance for revenge there potentially.

    That was the best we looked defensively in a while - we looked 2 steps faster tonight with a lot more hustle and better ball movement. Still have some issues on defense we need to sort out but today seemed like a good step forward.

    Was Mingo-Young sick as well? We had to give Matharu and AEH more minutes tonight and it paid dividends as both showed some scoring punch that freed up others to be more efficient.

    I thought that was the most complete game of basketball we have played since the loss at USC. We have shown spurts since but last night was our best effort since USC.

    The threat of a perimeter shot opens up lanes for our guards to drive.

    Matharu needs consistent minutes. She adds an element that we need badly.

    AEH played great last night. It was good to see her play well. She struggled with her shot early. But she kept playing hard on the defensive end and got some baskets at the free throw line and on a rebound. Then she started making shots.

    Bibby played great defensively last night. Her effort on Dungee was a big reason we won that game.

    We have potential to go on a run. We also have potential to lose in the rd of 32. Thats what young teams do. Next year, look out.

    Despite all the crying about our shooting on here, the ladies are still the top FG% team in the league, just ahead of USC.

    Keep playing Matharu...
    She's a big key to this offense. Also, in addition to providing more scoring, perimeter shooting, ect ....helps open up things for others.

    Coaching staff....very good decision

    This changes the opponents scouting reports on Miss. State
