This would be a big win. Not only to get to the NIT Final Four, but because it would suck so hard to have both our hoops teams eliminated from the post-season by Big 12 teams.
Before the Baylor game they said this was the first time either we or the Nubs had played against a Big 12 team since we left.
This is gonna be tough. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Okie Lite is a NCAA Tournament caliber team. They're inconsistent though, and our Buffs certainly have a decent shot to go down there and knock them off.
Remember, the Quarterfinals are where USC eliminated us last year. We've already posted a significantly better W/L record than last year, now let's take it a step further and advance deeper into the postseason.
As a sidenote, get used to competing with our old Big 8/Big 12 foes from here on out, especially in basketball and the postseason. Given geography, this is going to be a pretty regular occurance.
Jeffrey made the comment on the radio last night that the Buffs lost at Okie State last year but she had a concussion and didn't make the trip. She said she has something to prove. I hope she is right.
Oklahoma State fans were on the bubble for the NCAA until Mizzou beat them at the B12 tourney. Bad loss = WNIT.
Lappe continues to impress me and she has this team believing in themselves. That is a major part of the battle.
I considered a road trip from Iowa to Stillwater. Then I remembered what Stillwater was like the only time I've been there and changed my mind.
I can't help but think about where we'd be if Jen, Brenna and Arielle were healthy. That's pretty much all our forward depth on the shelf. It's so impressive to me to see how well this team is rebounding and guarding the paint.
I think Mandy (Nightingale) will be at the game in Stillwater...at least that's what I've heard thru the teammate-grapevine. Great to see the Buffs get the win versus Villanova....we're all excited for them! Go Buffs!
I love Mandy. So loved it at the alumni game when she took a charge!!! Afterwards she said she was too old for that!
Sunday sunday sunday
Can't wait for Sunday.
Almost game time! Just had an interview with radio commentary for Okla State on AM760. Heartbreaking.
The November plane crash that killed the HC and an assistant?
With that happening to the OSU program this year, I've got to admit that I'd be rooting for them to win the NIT if they weren't in the way of the Buffs.
Any place to watch online?
All I've found is audio streams from AM 760 and cubuffs.com (BuffRadio subscription).
OK State has a live webcast.
On it! Thanks!
Buffs trail 40-48 with about 16 minutes left.
OSU shooting FTs after the commercial break.
56-61 with a little over 8 minutes left.
Tied at 61 @ 6:30.
Come on ladies!
Down 8 with 2 minutes left.
Buff really competed and are getting close. OSU should have been in the NCAA tourney this year with their talent.
Very nice season for us. Next year the expectation is the NCAA tourney.
Great recruiting class coming in. Some very good young players coming back from injury. Only losing 1 senior.
Thanks for a good year with a nice run to close it out!
Nice work ladies! Proud of you and prouder to be a Buff!
way to go, Buffs!
This team ended up doing so much better than expected. We only lose Seabrook and I hope things are looking up for the Buffs.
I think the Buffs played really well today! They definitely looked better today than they did near the beginning of the Pac schedule. I love to see that improvement!
Way to finish off the season Buffs! Thanks to Julie for a great season and good luck in the future!
I also think this team ends up in the NCAA tourney next year! I can't wait!
Missed the game...you know, girls competitive soccer in N Texas....duh. But, great job Buffs!!!!
Congrats to our Buffs on a great season!
I'm looking forward to see what we can put together next year.
