I hope we put them away early so we can see our youth against all of their youth. Even then, I expect ours to beat theirs as ours get to practice against tougher competition daily.

thats correct. As of 2 weeks ago, 97% of their scoring came from freshmen and sophomores.

We need a big lead early so or young'uns can play against all of their young'uns, which is where their talent lies.

I believe tonight is family night. In the past Kim has tried to get the bench a little more time early so their families get a chance to see them. Hopefully that happens here.

Chloe gets to 20 in the first half; OU does not.

The freshmen are oozing with talent but they have to let the game come to them. Trying way too hard out there. Kim wanted to give them real time but they turned the ball over every time. The defense was solid at least. Maybe if she mixes them in with the veterans it'll go better.

Any word on Juicy? Not listening to the radio broadcast. Figure they may give an update

These freshmen. Can't help but giggle sometimes. They'll get it.

Lauren has 8 rebounds and 7 blocks. If she plays the 4th quarter she has a shot at a triple double.

Edit: As I post this, the whole bench checks in again.

Sure wish the FT shooting would get better before it costs them in the tournament. 57% against another top team won't cut it.

It was close but the freshmen "won" the 4th quarter. Major defensive lapses but time and experience will fix that. They have so much playmaking ability on offense once the game slows down for them.

I loved that the freshman got a lot of playing time tonight. You can see flashes of how it's going to be in the future with Egbo and Smith. Neither of then are as big as Brown or Cox but both are more athletic.
Moon's block at the end of the half was awesome. Everytime she comes on the court now everybody just goes Mooooon!
I saw Grant Teaff tonight. Also saw PJ Brown here on family night.
