I'll never understand how our men's and women's teams can shut down All American players, but put them against a 5 foot 1 PG and we can't guard them.

we have played really well from the 15 minute mark on. Offensive efficiency has been stellar tonight.

Agree with RealLarryDon. BU is not a great defensive team on the perimeter. Unless something changes quickly, dribble penetration will be the undoing of this team's changes against teams with excellent point guards. BU seems very slow.

That 5'7" point guard scores against everyone. He can play. We stopped him pretty well when we needed to early in the game. He has gotten most of his points when Baylor had a comfortable lead.
