Paige was aware of the shot clock. If there had been more time on the clock she would have passed the ball to Anna which would have been the right play.OMG. Looking at this clip, I did not realize Anna was open in the corner and just a slight shift in Paige's mood might have made her pass and history would be different. Why? Irregardless if Anna made the shot, Geno would have run out on the court and sat her down for the rest of the year.
It didn’t matter that Makurat was open. Bueckers knew that the shot clock was at one and because she sees and thinks the game like a senior it was going up.OMG. Looking at this clip, I did not realize Anna was open in the corner and just a slight shift in Paige's mood might have made her pass and history would be different. Why?

and outside of that BIG TIME 3 Pointer by Paige at the end, Paige did not have a good game at all.
TN looked gassed by the start of the 4th quarter. I was hoping we’d take advantage of it, and it looked like they tried to speed it up.The VolNation argument goes something like this. If our best players showed up, we would have won by 30 (ignoring the tough games most of our players had). When the slowest player in D1 basketball is your second best player, that could be a problem.
Most likely by Geno's design, they were up against a taller team, avoid your defender and draw them out for a high low pass to a now open teammate. If open or defended by a guard it's an easy shot. She did not hit them tonight, if she did there would be multiple posts of what a great call it was.What a game. Why was Olivia taking outside shots instead of being down low?
Good call! Also, Christyn was supposed to drive to the basket, but was cut off by three defenders. Westbrook said that she saw this and made herself visible for a pass. Evina had no hesitation in passing to Paige. All around, alert basketball led to the clutch basket.Seeing the clip of Paige's three again, I like how Makarat went to the basket in case there was a rebound. I don't know if any other UConn players went to the basket, but Anna did- showed basketball smarts there.
Yeah but ONO's blocks in the 4th quarter were monstrous! the blocks shook TN up, eh?One issue we had in the first quarter was ONO tried to block every TN shot when they penetrated. That left her man open on the weak side and led to all those offensive rebounds. AE really helped offset that as she doesn't leave her man and go for the block on every drive.
Disagree!For sure was not the right game-plan. Aubrey or Olivia should never be shooting threes unless the shot clock is down to a few seconds. They have enough trouble with free throws. I think you can probably count the number of bad free throw shooters, that are good three point shooters, on one hand and have five fingers left over.
Evina waited 2 long years and a LOT of rehab for this game. Good for her!Read a little of what's being said about Geno and UConn on vol nation and you will see that they have bile ducts where most humans have hearts.
Evina's growth really sticks in their craw. And makes me smile.
In Geno''s Presser he explained a bit about the outside shooting saying the players misinterpreted the plan of moving, cutting, screening and then in rhythm, take outside shots, In Genos words, only remembered 1 of the 4 things we wanted them to do.Just a few as every other couch coach will give a much more dynamic run down of the game than myself.
Are we really a top four team and if so does Tenn not deserve better than 25?
The officials let them play or were lazy tonight, there were a bunch of fouls not called, but equal for both teams.
Had to use the mute on and off tonight as the play by play man was insufferable. Play by play like we were listening to radio and not seeing the game ourselves, love Lobo but she got caught up in trying to reply to his every comment. By direction or intuition she cut way back in the forth, he prattled on.

Good win on the road in a most strange season in front of cardboard crowds.
