That's a tough 5 game road stretch!

Porridge AND gruel? Rich guy, huh?

I recall in the olden days, after my mother had just hooked Charlie, and got him to marry her (big mistake), and he got laid off from work right before Thanksgiving. He was going out hunting on Thanksgiving Day, and what he bagged would be our dinner. We were worried he'd come back with Bambi. Well, he came back empty handed, but he met his pal Kelly, who wore those Coke bottle eye glasses. Kelly had shot three birds, and was willing to say Charlie shot them, and he just carried the shells. So, we ate partridge and pheasant, and a little lead. 

Of course we could have just gone to Gramps' house for a feast, but you know my mother.

In one of the most disgusting exhibitions of incompetent subs, GW gives up at least 21 pts of a 26 pt lead with 3 1/2 minutes to go.    No use of the clock, jacking up shots with 20 seconds left on the clock.  No time out by Tsipis, no 1st team players until under 20 seconds left.  Ugh!!!!  6 seconds to go and they're trying to figure out who gets the ball.And I have to listen to the inane announcers.  I can't believe how long the refs are spending on this review.Finally... GW wins by 4.  I'm too disgusted to say more.

BC, pleasr dont point out bad play, you may upset the players. I just forgot about the game till a few minutes ago. Saw we gave up a big lead. Explain to me How? This team sure doesn't seem like a top team. Disturbing.

Get a life guys. They're all scholarship players. Obviously got closer than anyone wanted but that was the deep reserves on the court on a team with 2 more games to play on a long road trip. Enough with all the negativity already. It's not directed at you to spoil your holiday. This is a team developing over a season

I was pissed at the horrible use of the clock.  They were the deep subs, but even they shouldn't be jacking up shots with lots of time left on the clock.  They were plain stupid. The A-team, however showed up after a soso first quarter and slammed Houston in the 3rd quarter and half of the 4th to go up by 26 or 28.   Washington had a great game 11-13 from the floor and 12 rebounds.  JJ started out slow, but came on, except when she thinks she's a point guard.  (She's not).  Unusual lineup due to Tsipis playing Brown and Chandler who were from Texas.  Still lousy at shooting 3 ptrs (3 of 12), but were used to that at GW.   Prange had a better day, but I still wish she would set her feet before she shoots.   She's not good at the spin and shoot move that JJ does fairly well at.   We had 22 TO's but I don't recall if that was the subs.  They certainly had more than their share.

Poog, we only have 2 new players this year.  This is, except for Miller, the same team that won 29 games last year.  They just don't look like it.  Also, it's a long road trip which is probably why the coach was resting his players, but I think he waited too long to get his good players back in after the subs flubbed.

Oops, Caira was 9 of 11, not 11-13.   Still pretty good.  She's been really the star this year.

I watched 60percent of the game BC. Sure, they blew a 30 point lead. But it was clear to me the coach was coaching. Letting his women know they need him. That, too, is part of the learning process.

Washington scored. But Jones did everything. My guess, she even laces up all the sneakers.

BTW, the final score was 82-78.

GW RECENT RECRUITING, Classes of 2013 2014 2015...2016

Easy fix for those Pat Andree devotees. We can leave young Pat's thread to Pat Andree: The Dude (529 posts) - 8/10/2015 7:39:09 PM Anyone else here a little concerned about the recent recruiting efforts? The 2013 class was a disaster, the 2015 cl



As a fairly new reader and poster of this esteemed board, its impossible to not detect an air of defeatism among some of the loyal and thoughtful writers. 1) Any highly successful coach will just .... 2) We can't ever land a legit top recruit 3)
