Coach Warren has confirmed that Gerrits is out for the season with the knee injury she picked up at Loyola. Anybody know what it is? ACL? If so, might be looking at a redshirt next season.

Panther women look to be playing pretty well this weekend.
I think I'll head down to Moline tomorrow to see them take on Drake in the championship game.

I see the women are playing at 2pm tomorrow. Is the game going to be shown on television somewhere? ESPN3? Can't make it to Moline but would love to catch them in action.

interesting footnote: this will be the first time since 2002 that the top 2 seeds have met in the MVC tournament final

Thanks for the info. I am bummed that I have a previous commitment keeping me from going to the game but I can still watch. I hope Panther fans turn up to support the ladies. This may upset a few people but I wish that more fans would support the women's teams like basketball and volleyball.

I fully agree with that panthergirl123. These women athletes are doing a great job. I enjoyed many games on ESPN3 when I could not attend. The Panther women have proven themselves both on the court and in the classroom. Drake is going to be a very tough opponent again. I have concerns the Panthers will be overlooked for a NCAA bid if they don't win this afternoon. I am also not sure coach Warren gets the recognition she deserves.

That OT period was hard to watch. Man, I hate Drake and the retirement community that supplies fans for their crowds

We played well enough to win in regulation, but Ingle just siezed the moment. But heads held high for the Panthers.

Agree that UNI coaching staff runs a heck of a program.

Lots of W's and I believe the collective GPA is a gaudy 3.61.

Check me on this...But I think that program has ranked in the top 10% in the academic progress rankings for 10 years straight. That's salty.

Seems like a tough resume to leave out, but I won't hold my breath.

UNI had a heck of a time scoring anything in the second half/OT. I'm guessing Drake's defense had alot to do with that (was on the opposite side of the court from me that half, and I'm fairly clueless when it comes to basketball anyway).

Still, the Panthers definitely made a game of it.

Don't know which side of the bubble UNI will end up. Good resume, but aside from Drake and UNI, the rest of the conference is dead weight for RPI.

If they don't get into the tourney, I'd have to think that they'd be a lock for the WNIT. But I don't know how the financials work for that on the womens side. Would UNI have to turn down a bid because of costs, or does the NCAA subsidize the WNIT similar to how they do the NIT?

Radio man said that #2 in a conference is guaranteed a spot in the WNIT. Sounds OK to me. Panthers could have won if Abby Gerrits could have played. Needed to win in regulation - we were getting tired.

We played three good games. Angie Davison stepped up big. A very fun team to watch.

With Ellie Herzberg, Abby, Mikaela Morgan, Megan Maahs, and two other posts back we should have another contender next year. We need a point guard. Kennedy Kirkpatrick can do it if she works on her off-hand. She looked good against the lesser teams.

IMHO we need a true post also. Another Jen Keitel would be just fine. Hagen is the tallest returning player at 6'1", and that might be pushing it. Maas is a power forward and needs to stay there. Drake has Jonas back for two more seasons, plus about half their roster is 6'0" guard/forward types, plus they have two bigs returning that missed this season with injuries.

Simon-Ressler didn't play much but looked OK when she was in. I wonder if we might have Herzberg play some point also?

I hope they get in.

At bare minimum, they've earned a couple WNIT home games.

Had we belonged to a more highly-regarded conference, I suspect we'd almost certainly be in as an at-large. But unlike VB, the MVC has never gotten one than 1 WBB team in AFAIK.

Today's game attendance was close to 2,500. That was the highest attendance for a championship game since moving to a neutral court location.

Arrgh, I don't remember any of those. I'm not doubting you, but where do you research that? I do remember one year when ISURed under Pingleton beat Drake in the championship, but pretty sure Drake did not get an at-large.

Anyway, it's good news for us that the precedent has been set. As the TV folks and Drake coach have said, our resume *should* be good enough to get in.

ETA - Google is my friend

Interesting end to regulation. On uni's final possession drake had five fouls to give, they could have made it very difficult for uni to get a good look. On drakes final possession of regulation uni had three fouls to give, they also could have made it very difficult for Drake to get a shot off.

At least I read a tweet that said those were the foul situations.

I am a fan of fouling when you have fouls to give and when the other team needs a three at the end.

End of regulation was a heartbreaker. Maahs could not have defended her any better, she just made a great play.

I tend to agree that all of those fouls on both sides should have been used...

That doesn't sound right. I was there, but don't recall the exact amounts. I thought we had 4 fouls (next one was a shooting foul). Drake had not been CALLED for many fouls, but I don't think they had gone the whole fourth quarter without any being CALLED. Had one or two. Had they fouled us, then we could have played for the last shot, rather than giving them time for their shot. Megan did a good job without jumping and potentially getting a foul called on Drake's last shot. They barely got it off in time. We are a well coached and/or smart players team! Ellie's 3 to put us ahead was just crazy good.

Really hoping not, but it's looking like we may be one of the first teams left out of the Dance. If that's the case, you'd like to think a majority of the WNIT games could be played at home.

Despite the loss of three great seniors, we'll still be tough next season and beyond. We have become an extremely good defensive team under coach Warren & staff.
