Thanks, dballa!  I haven't seen the box score, but haven't both McMurry and HPU handle the Lady Pirates with regularity over the last few season?

Ralph you are right McMurry and HPU have both beaten them pretty easily...It will be interesting to see how HPU does against Hunter College in the final.  They have a lot of tradition there and should make for an interesting game. 

I noticed Trinity already got beat so it definitely does look like they are down a little bit this year.

An interesting article in today's Abilene Reporter News on the HSU women's team at
http://www.reporter-news.com/abil/sp_basketball/article/0,1874,ABIL_7991_4251758,00.html
Like most ARN articles, though, it should be taken with a grain of salt.  It describes McM stopping HSU in the conference tournament last year and then says McM was dealt a "crushing blow" in the off season with the transfer of Sonya West to HSU.  The implication is that Sonya was the key to that win, when, in fact, she wasn't even playing for McM last year.  And even though she's described as the only senior on the HSU team this year, just a few lines further down her fellow teammate Henley is described as a "6-foot senior center" (Henley is, in fact, a junior, so the article got it right the first time).
Alacumba!

McMfan, you are right about the improvement by the Lady Indians from 16-9 in 2003-04 with Sonya West to 19-9 and a trip to the ASC Tourney finals for the 19-9 2004-05 version.

McMurry was also able to defeat HSU twice last season after going winless against the Cowgirls since 2000.

Coach Nichols has done a great job of recruiting to fill the void of Sonya's leaving.  I wish Sonya well, but it looks like McMurry is stronger since since left.

I saw most of the McM-Southwestern game, but left 9 minutes before the end to go to a student music recital.  McM was holding a margin of around 20 at that point.  Tarra Richardson, the main scorer, was a bit flat at the start, but the team scored anyway from the other players until she got into her stride.  There appeared to be a nice spread of talent, not a team based on just one superstar.  There are some good new faces.  Of course, since Southwestern plays HSU tonight, I'm sure there will be comparisons of both teams (McM, HSU) up here tomorrow based on how both teams performed against a common opponent.
Alacumba!

This is in the form of a question and I am not suggesting anything from the question. 
Ralph you stated that MCM seems to have recurited well enough to more than replace the loss of S. West.  The results of last year of course bear that out.
My question is, is MCM glad she is gone and was she bad element on the squad.  I have no reason to ask that, just wondering. 
Finally,  would MCM be better this year if she was finishing with them instead of HSU.
I'm sure others will have opinions concerning this.

HPU defeated Hunter College 88-62 in the final of the Hunter College tournament.  Great win for the Lady Jackets.  Don't have the numbers yet but by that score the offensive numbers were very good.  Can't wait to see them play in conference play.

GO JACKETS!!!

I am watching the HSU game on the gametracker.
Sonya is showing that she is back.  14 points in the beginning of the second half.

looks like a final HSU 74 SW 69  not quite the blowout McMurry enjoyed the night before.

HSU played a terrible second half.  Lots of turnovers.

West had 16 points and more important 15 rebounds.

Well I don't know if the Indians needed her but it seems that the Cowgirls certainly did.

Can anyone explain why my post number has been stuck at 62 for a long time?
