After a bit of a shaky start defensively, the Bison buckled down and pulled away to beat American by 12 in the semi-final. On to the final on Sunday vs the winner of Army-Navy.

Navy threw in a wild three out of the deep corner with 0.5 seconds left to win by one. They had blown a big lead before the game-winner. Navy was in complete disarray in the final seconds but their coach opted to not take a timeout. They hit,the shot, but a huge amount of luck was involved.

Off to Sojka soon to watch the women play Navy. We are the better team, but Navy is scrappy and seems to find ways to win.

GO BISON!

Bison are getting killed when they have their three post players on the court together. Can't defend Navy's drive and kick. Navy has a number of players who can hit an open three.

Navy 37. BU 33 at the half. Navy is 8-11 on threes, largely against the big Bison lineup.

Another gutsy win for the women. Navy's 3 point shooting was unbelievable. They cooled off a bit in the 2nd half, but still shot 50% from 3. Our starting guards struggled on offense all day, but DeBoer and Walker stepped up big time when it counted. ESPN has us as a #14 playing at Duke.

The last projection I saw had Bucknell a 14 seed. I like our chances against any of the #3's or 4's.

DeBoer was name tournament MVP and for good reason. She almost single handedly carried the team in the second half. She ended up with 30 points, 9-14 FG, 5-6 3FG, 7-8 FT, along with 10 reb.

Bison have now won 28 in a row in Sojka. Only UConn has a longer home win streak.

Great game. Building strong program for future. Given more depth at guard, team should be at top of league for years.

Need to pay Coach to keep him. He can jump to big major but let's prevent him from going genuine mid-major. Possible?

Would be good show of faith, but we likely need to sell him more on school, positive place to raise family, etc. As a big fan of women's basketball, likely several of the "big teams" pay their assistants more than he currently makes. We won't win bidding war and not sure he has been in place long enough to get the "offer you can't refuse" for a few years. Others may pay more but also tend to fire quickly. He's relatively young and intangibles in Lewisburg may offset a pure money deal.

On the first video, you can see that the leaders of the court-storming were men's team players. I saw 11 of the 13 there, plus Coach Davis. It's too bad this coincided with spring break.
