Loss to DePaul

Coaching, coaching, coaching. We go down by one and have a T.O. to discuss strategy. DePaul player makes Free throw & Demons go up by 2, still time for a decent shot, lets just get the ball up the floor. If there was something discussed in the T.O. on what to do after the made free throw, then any semblance of what PSU would do/not do - it sure was not evident. Although the halfback type handoff 95 feet from the basket with 4.9 seconds left while Maggie Lucas stood 25 feet upcourt totally unguarded could qualify in the what not to do category.

If this sequence happened in a men’s game the screaming about lack of coaching strategy would be defeaning.

Tough loss but a fine season by the Lady Lions. Four of five starters back next year, plus top four scorers.

…and so ends my interest in any basketball for the rest of the season.

Yes…but, they have to become more “solid, with the ball.” This team just had “too many turnovers!!”

They seemed to have been improving in that area down the stretch. Still too careless, but much improved. Hopefully they focus on that going into next season.
