South Carolina has destroyed everyone. I love women’s basketball but the talent gap between the top teams and everyone else is still really big imo. It can be overcome some games but just look at us against Saint Peter’s. Heck ND beat northwestern 110-52.They got absolutely thumped by South Carolina. Made me think this game was winnable (not that we still can’t win), but I guess SC is just that good.
We played solid d for sure. ND is ranked 16th now.Cook didn't play as well as her normal self after missing 3 games. Lets hope she gets it together in second half, if healthy she will. Makira is that kind of player and ability she can. We adjusted some but I'll bet they didn't fully buy into the scouting report of how good ND was on D. They are quick, physical and we are small, but willing. Except for Bryant we didn't shoot real well, I think we will. Might have to pick up the pace a bit and draw some more fouls. I think we can stay close and have a chance for the win. All you can ask for against a top ten team, go into that last minute with the chance to win.
