Fanstand:  I get it.  I understand where you're coming from.  It's frustrating going one and out after an absolutely amazing season...But that's the drama of the playoffs, and sometimes the team who's been good MOST of the year isn't the team to beat at that time.  Timing is everything when it comes to March Madness.

For the rest of the McM fans:  I have a horrible truth to tell...So horrible I dare not utter these words aloud...Nay, writing them is cause of pain enough.  I actually have LOVED rooting for the cowgirls the last two weeks...I know, Ralph, get off the floor, it's gonna be okay.  Seriously though, we always say go ASC and I think we mean it.  BUT, this time it's been an absolute joy to watch (or listen to) HSU make this run...I've found myself cheering them on, and hoping for the best.  Thank you Cowgirls...And as much pain as it causes after 16 years of watching the games as an Indian:  GO COWGIRLS!

Jungle, you are a journalist!  You must maintain a modicum of objectivity. :D  ;D

I just hope you began enjoying rooting for the Cowgirls at 10:30 pm on Friday 3rd!

After the bracket that we got and the first round loss, I began rooting for the ASC, then Texas.

This is a different manner to show the ASC is not a one-trick pony, but the 3rd place team in the ASC-West is in the
Final Four.  There are a bunch of good teams here. :)

Wow Ralph, aren't you an ob/gyn? You doing surgery or something, what doc works on Friday afternoons? I've worked in the field for nearly 12 years, and no docs round here work on Friday afternoons?

Sometimes you just have to! ;)

Actually, Wednesday is when I do not routinely schedule patients.

I am so excited.   I am watching the game on the webcast.
It is the first time to see the girls.   SM is very good.  We are only getting one shot at the basket.   Down by nine at the half.  Still lots of game to be played.   Score is 32-23

heck of a comeback for HSU in the 2nd half down by 18 at one time.  Makes you wonder what the score could be if those shots in the 1st half wouldn't have rolled in and out....


Congrats on a great season HSU...way to represent your team, school and the ASC.

They lost by nine but it was much closer than that.  They were within four and missed they didn't, and foul shots ended the game.    

The webcast was great.   They showed their heart after getting blow off the court at the first of the second half.   A couple more few throws,  (which they missed very few) .  They still have a game to play and I hope they give it their all.

It definitely was an impressive comeback for HSU.  I was very impressed they kept fighting.  I have seen a number of midwestern teams play (including Hope) and I think HSU would give most if not all of them a good run for the money.  I know it is hard to see the season end, but making it this far is better than most teams can claim.

They drew to 53-55.  Very good effort!

The season is not over.  The 3rd place game is tomorrow! ;)

Great effort by HSU tonight;  almost an incredible comeback.  First half was a bit rough and our undoing, but kudos to the team for the way they fought back.  This team clearly belongs in the same league as the other three teams in Springfield, and have a lot to look forward to--both tomorrow and next season.

Congrats, Cowgirls.  I'm glad I got to see you in Springfield.

Is there a problem with the live feed for the consolation game?  I'm getting nothing.

Halftime-- Scranton 33, HSU 17.


It was 11-9 Scranton at 14:00.  They just pulled away.
