phantom fouls



Pat said on the d3hoops.com broadcast that there were a lot of strange calls that were pretty evenly distributed.  He's just a bit more neutral in this than either of us :-)

holding her own against Rhode



Tara did score nearly twice her season average (16.7) tonight on 13-of-21 shooting.  That may be her season high.    

By the way:  the official box score is up.

One of the last five points in regulation by Trinity was a free throw. Morusma foul before that on Rohde (she made both her shots) was legit, to my recollection.

Two fouls called on Macon in the final 3:30. I don't think that is unreasonable.

When I was referring to a number of strange calls, that was out of bounds calls. I think the fouls were pretty fair.

Thanks for the clarifications, Pat.  Oh well, on to next year and a dramatically different conference race.

OK, I know I'm a little biased being an RMC fan, but there were 8 fouls called on RMC in the last 5:30 minutes of regulation compared to ONE against Trinity. One was a clear block by Marusma on Rhode at the 1:39 mark, the ball had left Rhode hands when she hit the ball!!  

It just seemed like the harder RMC worked, the tighter the calls got against them going down the stretch.

I will agree with Pat, there were some really screwy out of bounds calls both ways and I thought there was some inconsistency made on 3 seconds and travelling calls both ways.  

I'm just saying 6 of the last 12 points for Trinity in regulation were FTs compared to 1 for RMC. Trinity took six other FTs during this same time!!  (RMC made the only FT they took.)  The refs definitely kept Trinity in the game.RMC was lucky Trinity was not hitting their free throws.

It was a tough loss for Trinity and would have been just as hard to swallow for RMC.

Geez, Hoopster, you won - enough said.        

Since this will probably be my last post of the season, congrats to TU's Christyn Schumann who won the NCAA D3 indoor high jump title today, setting a season high in so doing.   I believe Christyn makes up the school's entire indoor track team.   This is her second NCAA championship, adding to the outdoor title she took in the same event as a first year in 2004.

Bonzo, thanks for all the info on the game and for sticking up for the team.... if Pat says the fouls were reasonable, ' nuff said.  Tara and Amy had great games, wish Jenna and Lauren had played up to par, but they were great all year.  Tho  I only saw them twice, I'll miss these girls and my association with Trinity now that Amy graduates.  It's really been a fun 4 years following the team.

Randolph-Macon's fouling kept Trinity in the game, Hoopster. The refs merely were the ones calling the fouls.

I lied.  Congratulations to All-South honorees Tara Rhode (first team), Amy Howe (second team) and Jenna Smith (third team).  DePauw's Amy Argetsinger (first team) and Rose-Hulman's Rebekah Forsythe (third) were named to the all-Great Lakes team.

Argetsinger and Rhode are also among 40 nominees for the 2005 Kodak/WBCA All-America Basketball Team for NCAA Division III.  Ten players will be selected and announced NCAA Division III Banquet of Champions on March 17, 2005 in Norfolk, Virginia.

Rarely do you see a 5'10 person that is taller than a 6'2 person.

You're right, that was a pretty stupid post.  Happens to the best of us (and apparently me too).

A final tip of the hat to Tara Rhode, named today to the first team of D3hoops.com's All-America squad.  DePauw's Amy Argetsinger, the only other SCAC honoree, was named to the fourth team.

This is a few days old, but Tara was also named to the WBCA/Kodak All-America Team.  She was the only center among the ten players named to the first team.  Amy Argetsinger was one of 30 players named honorable mention (WBCA only selects a first team and an honorable mention team).   Congrats to both women on the conclusion of very fine careers.

Congratulations to Southwestern on their hiring of Coach Ruder!  Quality addition to the SCAC!!!  I can see Southwestern really improving their women's hoops team!
