    In response to Tiger81

Saw the first half on a plane. Thought Penn did a nice job overplaying Alarie for good stretches but she still was ridiculous. And when overplayed more often than not she was also able to hit an open teammate who usually converted. Offensively, incredibly impressive. Defensively, less so (at least in the first half) although obviously that changed by game's end.

  • Tiger81 Said:
Very tight game through the first three quarters; it was a see-saw contest with both teams playing tough defense but not able to get any separation. Behind by 3 heading into the 4Q, the Tigers lifted their level of play, triggered by a blocked shot by Bella Alarie on Leah Parker, who are both first team All-Ivy, and then a fast break layup/and-one by Gabrielle Rush. The dagger was on a kick out from Alarie to freshman Julia Cunningham who sank an uncontested three, her first points of the game.

Penn went cold in the 4Q and Princeton played heady, in-control and up-tempo to pull away. Carlie Littlefield, who was scoreless in the first half, was a huge spark in 2H and Alarie and Rush were outstanding for all 40 minutes.

Congrats on a great season for the Tiger women, they will be a touch matchup in the first round of the NCAAs.
