We lead at the half 32 - 30. However our two big girls are in foul trouble. Mulligan has 2 and Allesch has 3.

Never recovered from the bad 3 rd period and lost 71 - 60. Mason now 19 - 7 on the year while UMass is 11 - 14. Their big scorer had 30 points and 19 rebounds. I think that this is the gal that has had 20 + double, double games this year.

You might wonder why I watch the gals so much. I bought the All Access package for 4 months and with not much else on TV to watch I might as well watch them. NASCAR racing don't start until the Daytona 500 next Sunday so that will give me an option for stuff to watch on a Sunday afternoon.

87-50 today over URI. Great way to end the season. They beat teams they should have beaten and are playing much better basketball. 6-10 in conference and 14-15 overall are big improvements over last year. Hats of to the team and Coach Verdi who has has to work under extraordinary stress this season.

Ladies end up as the 10 seed, exactly where they were predicted in the pre-season poll.

Bad luck though as they have to travel to St Louis for the opener of the conference tourney. Lady Billikens, or whatever they're called, fell down to 7 after being predicted as #2. They only beat us by 1, at SLU, in the regular season.

Tourney game is Tuesday at 8 Eastern.

Sounds like they know how to play against them then.

The game is tonight.

Lost 70 - 64. Season is over. As well as they shot the ball in the first half they shot real bad in the second half.

I was really hoping they would get through the first round. I thought they came together towards the end after that dreadful middle section of the season. Disappointing.

The goal now is to make sure they do not lose their best player(s) in the off-season so they can actually work towards building a program. Fingers cross...
