It was a valiant effort last night by the Lady Royals, but they ran into a buzzsaw.  Their size and defensive pressure was just too much.  While Temple didn't score much in the first 3 quarters -- thanks in no small part to Sheehan -- she made her presence known in other ways and the Saints showed that they have plenty of other players who can be just as dangerous.   And just like Temple did to Wash U, she took over in the 4th.

No shame in that loss.  Congratulations on a fantastic season, best of luck to Bridgette as she graduates, and I look forward to a strong core coming back for another strong season next year!

Thought we had a chance in the late 3rd quarter. Oh well. Great season and way to represent the Scranton community.

Would be curious how the pre game party was and the overall atmosphere for the weekend was.

Thanks.

Pre game was great; probably 40 in attendance; positive remarks from Dave Martin about the final 4 experience for the team so far; they're going to repeat it today.

 While awaiting the start of the championship game, the refs from Scranton's semifinal game came up the aisle to find a seat; as the ref who T'd up Trevor came by, I smiled and gave her the T sign; she saw my Scranton shirt and laughed with me in response.

Not any more, but there is an all-star game that Bridgette was selected for if the team isn't in the championship game.

To clear this up just in case ...

Bridgette would have played in the game had Scranton not made the weekend. The WBCA (following the NABC model) needs to have the players selected prior to the weekend. The NABC used to reserve a couple of spots for the semifinal losing teams ... but that eventually fell apart and made it too complicated.

Now, what the WBCA did differently than the men ever have is they announced their entire team the week before and then substituted those in the semifinals with other players. I thought this was a novel idea that could work out nicely, but in the end I think it got a bit complicated as well. Nice to honor players being "chosen," but both WBCA and NABC had to take players who were in the "final vote" and were not selected ... and put them on the team anyway.

I am sure both will re-evaluate how they do this moving forward.

I was recently reading an article about the very real problem of women's college transfers & other issues going on in today's game.

In reading that article, it referenced the following publication by Trish Kellogg, the wife of a D-I Head Coach.

Although this opinion is nearly three years old, I think Trish is spot on.

Enjoy the read.

Congratulations to Makenzie Mason on earning the National Jesuit Women's Basketball Player of the Year. The Men's award went some unknown player named Markus Howard. 😁

So Markus Howard must be a bit-time D1 player?  I'm assuming by the smiley face we're supposed to know him, but I've never heard that name in my life.

 Markus was probably the most renowned player in the Big East this season.

Howard is indeed an excellent player.  He averaged 25 points/game for 23-8 Marquette (including dropping 53 against Creighton in January -- a Big East record), earning Big East POY and consensus 2nd Team DI All-American.  He often singlehandedly won games for Marquette this year.
