Travis Mays' SMU team beat aggy today. We trained him well
Creme's bracketology doesn't even have us making the tournament. Tennessee who we beat yesterday is in the last Four Out and we didn't even make that. We will end non-conference at 6-4 unless 5 more players go down to injury. It's a very bizarre prediction as he's basically predicting we'll go 7-11 in Big 12 play. That would give us a losing record and keep us out. I was down on us and I still thought the floor would be a 9-9 conference record.
That is a joke. And wrong. This team should easily go 13-5 or something. The team is getting better as the season has progressed. Just how we've played from Stanford -> Miss St. -> SC -> UConn was like night and day differences.
Hell, I think we might finally get a Baylor win this season. By then, we should be rolling if everyone stays healthy. Shug and Holmes are only getting better and Jada has been a spark plug.
Next 7 games:
UT RGV 5-5
New Orleans 4-4
Texas Tech 6-3, don't have any good wins
ISU 7-2, don't have any good win. They did play Miss State close.
TCU 6-3, don't have any good wins.
Only tough game in these next 7 is probably ISU on the road. At worst, we should finish 6-1 during this stretch.

@ Iowa St.
Road games in the Big 12 are still hard.
6-1 or 7-0 is doable if Atkins is back for all 4 of those Big 12 games.
I would throw OK State in there and say we go 7-1 or 8-0 (which puts us at 10-5 or 11-4) before going to Morgantown.
Jesus Christ, Baylor just beat Winthrop 140-32. Largest margin of victory in NCAA History.
Atkins second straight game out with the concussion. Worried about that
Lang has missed 2 straight wide open layups.
29-17 Texas over UT RGV after 1. Missed about 5 layups or this would be much worse.
Lang has missed literally like 4 or 5 layups in the 1st half.
Is this the first time the other Goudreau sister has played this year?
The lineup on the court right now is one I want to see more of. Hosey and Holmes are the two "bigs".
At some point, you would think we would hedge the 3.
Aston is playing everyone tonight.
Texas up 14 at the half on UTRGV. Aston played the bench most of the 2nd quarter.
UTRGV just heaving threes
Aston is right about needing better perimeter defense. If all they are going to do is jack 3s hedge the 3 point line.
Texas up 21 in the 3rd.
27 out of UTRGV's 35 points are on 3 pointers. 2 points at the FT line. I've never seen anything like this. They aren't even attempting to do anything on offense except jack 3s. UTRGV has 22 3 point attempts and we only have 3.
Underwood needs to get more minutes. Plays with a calmness that we really need at times.
UTRGV has attempted 31 3 pointers with a minute to play.
It's obvious Joyner Holmes is the most athletic player on the court at almost any given time, but her shot making is a lot more raw than I thought it would be when we recruited her. Once she develops a consistent mid-range jumper, she'll be unstoppable.
Lang 11-11 tonight. School record
The crowds being drawn at the FEC are absolutely pathetic for the last 3 games. I was attributing UTRGV and UTSA to the conflicts with volleyball and being on a holiday weekend. Last night with kids being out of school, I expected a decent crowd. It was sad. I think Gail's teams drew more people and that was an absolute $#@! show to watch. I sure hope they can manage some sort of crowd for next week's Big 12 opener against Tech.
Gail bled off a huge chunk of the fan base for sure. But under Aston the bleeding stopped and attendance while not growing for most games was sort of stable. The announced crowd of 2500 last night is a joke... I don't think there was even half of that. The crowd last night was a new low.
The sad thing is Aston and her staff are doing a lot of work to try and get people to show up for these games.
We need to move some of these games to Gregory.
I liked reading in the paper that Aston was telling the team that Lang should touch the ball everytime and should have had 40 points against New Orleans. There were many times last year where I thought Imani should have dominated smaller teams and we were too busy shooting jump shots. When you have a size advantage like that you have to use it.
3-star wing Lolo Davenport commits to Texas - 2018
Yup so take the road wins wherever you can get them and hold serve at home
For some dumb reason, I thought Brooke was a senior. Dare I say, whatever we do this year, next year will be better with White instead of Lang, a whole offseason and a year of experience for Joyner and Boothe? We will miss Bri and Kelsey, but I think we will be better in the middle.
Our best shot for the FF is with Brooke and Ariel as seniors
I forgot about White sitting on the bench waiting for her turn. I never saw her play at S. Carolina. Is she all that? If she is a good post then her at the 5 and Holmes at the 4 should take us to another level.
My thoughts on this year's team is we'll do well to make the Sweet 16. Making the regional final will be overachieving for this team and if they somehow manage to do it, I'd just like to see it be against someone besides UConn.
She was the top post in her class. She got to USC and unfortunately Alaina Coates wasn't giving up the C position and Aja Wilson sucked up any time for her to play F instead. She barely got to play at USC due to depth chart, injuries and illness.
Watching OU@WVU. For having a 6'9 player, OU has a $#@!ty inside game. WVU can shoot the three and that can be our downfall. Both will be tough games, but we've got the size and experience inside with Kelsey to be okay. 2-2 against those 2 teams is likely. 3-1 would go a long way to solidifying 2nd in the conference.
If we would stay focused the entire 40 minutes on guarding the 3 point line the way we did against TCU Saturday night, we can be the #2 team in our conference.
