Bella should be able to handle the Kentucky front court, but the guards are going to have their hands full.

Littlefield may actually be the key since she will have to deal with them for almost 40 minutes, while avoiding turnovers and putting up points. She is certainly capable of it, but it is a tough task since there really isn't an Ivy team, this year, that plays like that (maybe Yale from last year was closest).

They have a some depth with Cunningham, Baur and Boyer, but realistically they will need their top 4 to play at their best on Saturday.

Banghart's intensity seems to bother people outside of Princeton, but there is no denying she is a great coach. She seems like a Ivy League lifer, so I would think it would have to be a major conference job for her to consider leaving. Last year, the Virginia job opened up suddenly when the team's coach had to resign to deal with an adoption issue with her young daughter. With an improving ACC program that had just made it into the NCAA Tournament, I would have thought they would make a run to get Banghart, but they went for former WNBA star and Texas assistant coach Tina Thompson.

This year, Virginia took a step back with their first time coach and went 12-19 after being 19-14, 20-13 and 19-16 the previous three years.
