    17-14 Gonzaga with 11’55” in the half. OSU was up 9-2 on several Gonzaga turnovers. OSU isn’t getting a lot of rebounds and while the D is making the Zags work deep into the shot clock, they’re getting high percentage shots and nailing them.

    Morrison with the walkoff dinger, 3-1 Beavs… Donahue was at 3b with one out

    My eyes are getting old, by the reaction of the wsu players I thought it was out but they just let it drop and is scored a double and the final 2-1.

      Morrison????? I can’t believe it, had no clue he had power like that.

      O/OFFT: Anyway, women’s game is good so far. Could cut down on the turnovers and they have a shot to win this easy.

      As far as the men’s bracket, anyone surprised at Wichita St? I called it, but I had UVa and IowaSt in the Final 4. So I got the little stuff right and the big stuff wrong.

      Great defender, pretty much our only player that knows how to slip screens consistently. That said, she can be a liability on O a lot. Streaky shooter, misses a ton of layups, not too good of a midrange either. Hopefully she can bang a couple home for us in the 2nd half.

          Vandeveer figured out the formula for beating Rueck and the beavs. They can be easily outmuscled, which you notice when the ball is either loose or bouncing around on the tips of hands in a scrum.

    Beavs have no real offense. It’s stand around and wait for someone to get open for a 3. Sometimes toss it inside to Hamblin, but usually the entry passes are poor or she misses an easy layup. Nobody can back the defender down. That’s a big problem. Gonzaga is playing the opposite offense.

        Agree. When they went down to Tempe and beat ASU, I thought they might be a Final Four team. But I think that was their high water mark. The last ten games of the season they felt like a team that was going to be one-and-done though. I did have some hope they’d make it to Spokane as playing at home would cover the teams weakness. That didn’t work out so well.

      It’s definitely a lost art as far as the Beavs are concerned. I seem to remember Jack sputtering some last year saying (paraphrasing) it is the 2nd easiest shot – the first being a free throw. Maybe they think they don’t have to practice or do drills to improve. It’s really bad when the men can make a layup but go for a dunk and miss. Jared Cunningham (now with the Idaho Stampede) was terrific at that.

    This is a tough one to stomach right now. Gonzaga truly wanted this game more than we did and that’s why they’re coming away with this one. They outplayed us in both halves. Came down to rebounding, free throw shooting, late shot clock situations, and making errant passes that did in the team. Zags got em fair and square.

      I think so, too. Very obvious in the play. Maybe the refs saw that, too, and that’s why they got 90% of the iffy calls. REALLY bad reffing, but Beavs played poor and the better team won.

    Beavs seemed to have an attitude of “we will figure it out at the end” or “weise will bail us out with 3s at the end”…I hate teams when teams develop that mindset. It’s natural, but you have to fight it. Coach should be all over that. Hopefully he was. They should be much better next year after learning from this, but that was an embarrassing loss on the home court with a sweet 16 on the line. Those opportunities don’t come often; you have to seize them.

    I was looking at Gonzaga’s schedule. They hadn’t beaten anyone good all year. Their best win was Dayton (who took down Kentucky earlier). Pretty embarrassing.

        Every team that has played in your face defense has beaten them this season. Now have lost the last 3 of 5 games.

        Maybe they got to the point where they thought they didn’t have to PLAY any more and could still win and began coasting.

          Deven Hunter seems to ALWAYS bring a competitive, total game effort. Maybe Scott should lock her in a cage match with Ruth. Ruth is just too sweet and needs to toughen up.
          Marie showed some aggressive play today as well, but not on the same level as Deven.
          Too say Syd had a disappointing day is an understatement; not because of missing 8 of 9 three point attempts, but for the uncharacteristic turnovers as well.
          Better days ahead, but a long wait for them.

            Ruth worked on her footwork and defense last year. She need an inside shot to compensate for the fact she can’t jump well; along the lines of a skyhook or fall away jumper.

      While Rueck gets well-deserved kudos, I felt as if he didn’t shake things up much, especially toward the season’s end. Gulich has a lot to learn but she got 5 rebounds during her minutes late in the game when the Beavs caught up. Most of all, the team seems slow. When the Beavs scored, it took no time at all for Gonzaga to answer.

    This was my fourth OSU women’s game this season and they’re clearly good but I’ve never felt like they dominated any of the games I went to, even when they ought to have.

    The refs were awful. They let Gonzaga get away with too much and punished OSU when they started to match Gonzaga’s physicality. I wonder how much that got into OSU’s head. I think I’ve seen this crew officiate an OSU game before and they were bad then too.

    On defense, OSU often forced Gonzaga to go deep into the shot clock, but then give up the inside bucket anyway. They needed to close out possessions and contest those shots. It felt like OSU was good at keeping Gonzaga from getting to the spots they wanted, but gave up once they took the shot.

    OSU almost forced a shot clock violation in the second half, but the OSU player reached in when the clock read 1. That’s the kind of mistakes that this group seems to make.

    This game was lost when OSU turned it over on five consecutive possessions shortly after halftime. They dug their own hole there and nearly climbed out of it, but couldn’t finish.

    All season it’s felt like the Beavs were trying to make tough plays that were just outside their grasp. Lots of too-fast passes trying to get transition baskets that turn into turnovers. Lots of passes to the interior with three opponents all in there too.

    And of course there’s the aforementioned lack of hustle. I haven’t ever felt like I saw this team hustle when they didn’t need to.

    I think this team will be fantastic next season. I have a lot of confidence in Scott Rueck—his teams have gotten better every season. Next year they need more hustle, they need to make layups, and they need to get more boards. They’ll be good.

    It was fun getting to see so much good basketball this year. Tickets to the women’s games are only $7, so I can afford to go to every game when my schedule allows.

    Does anybody know why Ruth Hamblin sat out so much of the last ten minutes?

      Ruth sat out because she was getting pushed around underneath, and demonstrably so.

      This team will potentially be better next year, since it will be a senior heavy squad. It’s not a given though. But really they f-d up a golden opportunity this season with the 3 seed and having home court advantage. How many times is that going to happen?

      They’ve got some serious problems to remedy though, for sure. Rueck has got six months to figure it out. I truly hope he won’t channel Ralph Miller and put together great regular season teams but then never do anything post season.

    We just got our second commit and we may get an awesome running back with Malik Staples. I get the feeling that even the commits that do not have a lot of offers, are quality players. I have so much more confidence in these coaches. There should be no problems getting a full group of quality recruits this year. We have the Polynesian pipeline along with strengths in new states like Utah and Florida. Seth Collins was only a 2 star and he is already in the top 3 for our quarterbacks.

      Gotta pay for Andersen and the new coaches somehow.

      They had always been free and still hardly anyone attended them.

        I never attended in the past, because it never sounded interesting (no linemen, no tackling etc) . This year, I’m actually considering making the trip down there with my kid to go watch it (if the weather is good).

      You get what you pay for.
