Two SLIAC lady's games in St.Louis to keep us ticking until a full conference schedule on Saturday...

Tonight (Tuesday, 12/5), Webster hosts Finlandia.....I may go check this out just to ask someone from Finlandia:
     Why schedule Webster, 690 miles away?
      and in the middle of the week?
     How did they travel?   if they drove...690 miles... 3 days out of classes? and exhausted when they get home?  and good grief, they play at Northland on Thursday night.... How can they do it???
      And how did they get two players on their roster from FLORIDA?.. one from Miami...uhhh, that's 1850 miles!!!  these are the kind of tidbits I'd love to find out about.. what enticed this young lady to pick Finlandia.. she didn't have to go that far north if she just wanted to see snow!! ;D ;D

Anyway, Finlandia enters the game 0-7, 6 blowouts and a close loss to Whittier...


The 2nd game is intriguing, Greenville comes to Wash U on Wednesday.. I'm sure that after two great wins over Eureka and Westminster that the Greenville program is flying high, but Nancy or no Nancy, I think of Wash U as a totally different level... still, they lost to Austin.... might be interesting to see...

Incidentally speaking of Nancy Fahey... currently 6-4 at U of Illinois... some nice wins, but some blowout losses... I have no idea what expectations were....

The vibe seems to me that there wasn't a lot of external pressure on Coach Fahey.  Certainly not to win 20+ games in her first season.  More like being competitive in her first season and go from there toward becoming a perennial contender to win the Big 10.

Looks like Webster set a new school record last night with 16 made three pointers in the game vs Finlandia. The record book shows the previous high being 13 on 2/4/17 and 12/1/10. It is also the third highest percentage of three pointers made in a game at 57.1% -- 16 of 28. Must be at least 10 made to qualify for the percentage record. Tops is 86.7% on an amazing 13 of 15 on 12/1/10. Congrats on the great shooting last night.

Wow, I was right on this one... Greenville seemed intimidated from the outset...nowhere near the level of confidence I saw vs Eureka...  Wash U blows them out  83-56 despite Wash U looking very sloppy with 21 turnovers...This was D2.5 vs D3.5 rather than D3 vs D3....

Unlike the Men's conference race, which, after 3 games seems to have narrowed itself to 7 legitimate candidates for 4 conference tourney spots (I eliminate Fontbonne, Iowa Wesleyan, and (gasp) MacMurray who was my preseason choice to win it all)...  the ladies race seem to already be decided as 4 teams seem to be locks for the 4 conference tourney bids... Greenville, Eureka, Westminster and Webster... Fontbonne might have been included, but couldn't compete with Webster, and I don't see them competing with Eureka or Greenville either.... Westminster beat Spalding, and Spalding lost close to Fontbonne....Greenville has already beaten Eureka very close (a great game) and clobbered Westmin....

Now, who does this little writeup end up being the kiss of death for? ;D ;D
