To be more specific...

McDonald was 13-of-21 from the floor, 8-of-11 from beyond the arc, and 9-of-9 from the free throw line. It's entirely likely that he could break into the top 10 all-time in scoring this season (barring injury).

Oh, and it gave CUA the only two 40-point games of the year in the ASC (the other was Maxwell's 41 against UT-Tyler).

CUA 74, Huston-Tillotson 81

I think it was the first zone D we'd faced all year (HTU played 1-3-1 most of the game). I'll give HTU's coach credit, she stuck a 5-8 or so girl up top against our 5-4ish point guards. Pretty much wrecked our offense for most of the night.

I'm concerned about how this week is gonna mess with our girls' heads. Three losses by a combined 10 points in the course of six days can't be good for their psychology, especially when the first two were final-minute heartbreakers.

I know what you mean, thundercat. The only reason for losing a player that I know of was when we lost Danielle Barnett to UTD. She left because our then-assistant coach McKinney left to take the head job at Schreiner. I guess she was only here 'cause of McKinney and didn't like Sharp much.

As far as our student body goes, at this point in the season I'd bet a lot of 'em are either (a) working nights or (b) working on end-of-semester projects and whatnot. We had a pretty good turnout for UTT as far as I could tell. I think we had about 50 fans total for our Monday nighter against Menlo College. I think the problem's more that the fans who do show up aren't terribly vocal, rather than they just don't show up.

I have noticed from volleyball, though, that we tend to be out-drawn by our visitors, especially nearby ones like TLU.

Well, if you insist....  ;D

I think we'll be challenging for the West title in a couple years, I think. We only have something like 5 upperclassmen on this year's squad and only two of them get significant minutes. Not to mention that Kassandra Bills is one of the top scorers in the conference as a sophomore (a bit too Iverson-esque for my taste though) and we've got a solid and improving post in Jackie Eddins, all we're really short is someone who can rebound even a little bit like McMurry's Richardson.

As far as I'm concerned, any school that holds us to 70 points is plenty good defensively.

No prob. Posting on here had been on my to-do list for a while.

I don't think anyone's going to really enjoy playing us this season. While we're not the most athletic team by any stretch, we play hard for the whole 40 minutes and play tough defense (we "held" UTT's Stanley to 16 points, for what that's worth).

CUA's in the middle of a tough stretch. We lost by 4 to UTT after tying the game at 70 with less than a minute left (if I recall correctly). Then we lost to Menlo College (#12 in NAIA Division II) on a literal last-second buzzer-beater 67-68. Hopefully we can bounce back tomorrow night against Huston-Tillotson before taking on UTD on Saturday.

Let's hope the McM guys can also bounce back in their classes.  They are playing a lot of games right before finals... ending with a road trip to Ozarks Saturday when final exams begin on Monday. 

Perhaps that is a topic that should be addressed by the Presidents at the next conference meeting.

You bet they do. We (CUA) have to travel to ETBU and LETU for games on Thursday the 14th and Saturday the 16th, which means they'll be leaving probably mid-day on the Wednesday of finals week. Our president even got involved and they wouldn't change it.

On another note, UT-Tyler deserves credit for never quitting in that shootout they had with us. Weasby was on fire in the first half (I think he had 21 or so), and late #33 for them was hitting everything he put up. They have enough shooters and rebounders to give a lot of people trouble. I'm looking forward to seeing how we do against UT-Dallas. It could be another shootout, what with Salinas for UTD and Maxwell and McDonald for us.
