Default Uni wbb

Disappointed in the lack of discussion our women have generated on this site. While the men have taken us on a roller coaster, these ladies have been playing well all year long.

They are 15-4 (8-0), in a tie for 1st in the conference and hosting Drake (same records) on Friday. Hope the McLeod is loud and excited for our ladies.

The women are playing excellent basketball. I have seen several of their games and have enjoyed them all. There are plenty of seats to view the games in person and most have been live streamed on ESPN3.

Defensively the Panthers look very sound. Like the men they depend on the three but do have an inside presence that allows them to get the ball inside and then put back offensive rebounds. This team is on a pace to better last year's team that won the regular season.

I think they're a lot of fun to watch. We haven't lost since Iowa clobbered us, and in contrast Iowas' been up and down. We're still a bit small across the front line IMHO but Schonhardt (who I think is more of a true forward) has done a nice job of being our post. Herzberg has developed into enough of a scorer that teams can't focus on Weekly, so she's kind of taking over from what Benson was for us last year.

The Drake game will be interesting. We beat them 3 times last season, and I can't imagine they don't have Friday circled on their calendars. Wendell and Ingle are really good players, and they have a big, strong center along with a talented bench.

Jacqui Kalin has been doing color on the TV broadcasts, and is no longer listed as an assistant for the Bulldogs. Is she out of coaching?

Free admission for the game Friday. I hope this turns out to be a big crowd. These women work hard through the entire year and play in mostly empty arenas. It is time they got a few more folks in the seats.

What a fantastic game for the Valley tonight.

Disappointing that UNI was not able to finish the game with either Maahs or Schonhardt on the floor. Drake was able to score at will in the paint down the stretch.

Wow. It is hard to lose games with that kind of FT shooting. First, it obviously gives you lots of easy points. Second, it also means that the refs are calling lots of fouls on your opponents.

Did UNI try to play physical? Or were the refs just calling a lot?

Drake's first 10 points came from layups, and our foul trouble/their living on the free throw line came from our subsequent attempts to shut off the inside. As it was they had 3 players with 10 or more rebounds, and they out-boarded us 54-40. I thought we played really well, other than we just couldn't handle their inside game, and that is due more to the quality and number of Drake's bigs than our own weaknesses. Most teams, us included, don't have a match for Jonas, and she's only a soph.

We're really going to miss Schonhardt next year (and Weekly of course). Maahs is already pretty good and going to get better, and Hagen is dependable, but they're too short, and Hillyard is shorter. Hope coach Warren has somebody in the 6'3"-6'4" range on the way.

I thought Drake's zone was really tough and they put a lot of energy into it. Proof that a zone doesn't have to be a lazy defense. I think they'll be good next year also despite Wendell and Ingle graduating.

Drake was having its way inside early for scoring and rebounding, they have really good bigs. It shows that their coach Baranczyk was a pretty good center in her playing days. Our fouls were due to our kids playing hard to get that evened out, IMHO. The refs were calling a lot, but it was an intensely played game by both sides. Personally I'd rather see it called tight and consistent than get out of hand.

Coach Warren was quoted in the Courier as saying they'd get the foul problems corrected: http://wcfcourier.com/sports/college...451b21584.html

A classy quote from Baranczyk: "The atmosphere was awesome," Drake coach Jennie Baranczyk said. "Honestly, everyone that came for the first time tonight needs to come back. They need to watch this team. UNI is a great team. They're still a young team. They're going to continue to have a great season."

Watched game on Internet in Florida. Busy with family but couldn't put my iPhone down. Tough game to lose. The toughness of both teams will be evident in their next games. Great game to watch.

Interesting that Gerrits was elevated to the starting lineup over Morgan for the E-ville game, and was leading scorer. Had that not happened, it could have been a different game, as Weekly, Herzberg and Maahs were a combined 6-27.

I think maybe the coaching staff wanted to put a spark under MM...

Bummer that we couldn't quite hold on at SIU, in that had we been able to win out the regular season (a tough order to be sure, esp. at Drake), we might have been on the bubble for an NCAA at-large bid. We came into the weekend with a 49 RPI, better than Iowa or Iowa St. Drake still might be in the running for one (RPI 28) if they don't win the tournament.

The Salukis (despite their 202 RPI) just plain brought it in the 2nd half, the more success they had the more energy they found, whereas we looked tired late in the game. Schonhardt and Maahs both had 3 fouls and had to play carefully. Our offense for the last 10 minutes was basically whatever Weekly could come up with, which had been a problem earlier in the season. A nice first half from Gerrits, but like everyone else, not much in the 2nd half.

The SIU announcer commented that Morgan looked tentative whenever she touched the ball, not a good time for her to be in a funk.

Hoping this is nothing serious, but at the half at Loyola, two starters out with knee issues, Schonhardt and Gerrits,who is on crutches

Also, just now noticed that Mariah Criswell is no longer listed on the roster, did she leave at semester break?

seems like UNI WBB has had a bevy of knee injuries the past few years.
(maybe it is the same across wbb in general, I don't know)

It's an epidemic for female athletes. Thanks to body structure their hips are wider which puts the femur at an angle that puts added pressure on knee ligaments, especially the ACL.

Good news on HS, radio guy said she was icing both knees, but that probably happens a lot this time of year. He also said he thought Gerrits bumped knees with a Loyola player, so hopefully that's just a bruise. Coach Nelson had no info on either in the post-game. He did say he hoped coach Warren would be good to go by Sunday.

ETA - watched the replay and a Loyola ballhandler inadvertently caught Gerrits on the side of the knee, just above the joint. She was wearing those sleeves with the built-in knee pads, but no padding on the sides, of course. Cautiously optimistic.

UNI beat Indiana st. 61-59 in OT. Defense again was great, offense was a struggle. Free throws were crucial. Back to back 20 win seasons for first time in WBB history.

Was worried when we were down 21-6 and Weekly had missed her first 9 shots. Have to give credit to the Lady Trees for a nice defensive effort, they brought help whenever a UNI player drove and caused us a lot of trouble. Actually looked a lot like our defense, I thought. We probably could have used Gerrits today - I figured she'd be held out, but was hoping she wouldn't still be needing crutches. Suppose she'll be looked at Monday and we'll hear something Tuesday.

Has to be rare in a game that you cause 32 turnovers you only win by two.


Radio announcer (Chris does a great job all alone, by the way) was mystified by quite a number of calls/game administration by the refs.

I didn't see the entire game (probably still available on Watch ESPN), but one time Schonhardt drove along the baseline, was knocked (not just pushed) out of bounds and the refs gave the ball to the Trees. Many times Weekly and Herzberg drove into contact and lost the ball with nothing called either way. OTOH, they also called some touch fouls on them as well. Their coach was very unhappy at halftime.

I agree Chris does a great job. Very smooth and easy to understand. For contrast, Rob Brooks does the Iowa WBB games and is tough to listen to, with his monotone and halting speech pattern. Leaves the impression that he's not thrilled with the assignment, rightly or wrongly.
