That was a very tough game we won today. We didn’t shoot well, but HC is very good at getting to the hoop and drawing fouls, and their free throw shooting is excellent. I feel sorry for all the students who were partying behind the houses on St. Catherine Street. They missed a good game.


The women played very well the last 3 minutes after HC went up by 4. Huge 3's by Mack and Johnson. The team showed a lot of poise.

19 lead changes and 14 ties. That's a hard fought game.

Over 1300 attendance at the women's game. About 200 more than at the men's game at AU. And I don't feel sorry for the students partying on St. Catherine St.

Bison women on TV! Great game to watch. As jkrun noted, entire game close with Bison making comeback in last 3 minutes. They looked well coached but at times played "small," getting beat consistently on boards. Fortunately, made a few more clutch 3's and layups in the 4th Q than HC for the win.

Blew a 17 point lead, but rallied late and made FTs to pull out the win. I'd rather not see Boston again this season.

I also would not like to see them again. I watched them beat us at Sojka, and they are a tough out.

Women got an easy win over Lafayette yesterday. It's a shame more fans didn't stay for at least part of the game. (I'll confess we left early since the outcome was never in doubt.) This was their 9th win in a row and the senior class broke the program record for most career wins (held by last year's class). They are 7 wins away from breaking the PL record.

They remain tied with American for 1st place at 10-1. American's only loss came at Sojka in the first PL game, so they have won 10 in a row. Cecily Carl has 37 and 28 in their last two games. We don't see them again until March 2 in the next to last regular season game. Needless to say, a huge game.

It's too early to speculate about post-season, but when has that ever stopped us. In the event we win the remaining regular season games, the first two playoff games, and lose a close final to American, what are the prospects for an at-large NCAA bid? Our current RPI is 49 (AU is at 93). Our record would be 28-5 with the five losses coming to two RPI top 25 teams (Syracuse(8) & Iowa St(10)), two top 100 teams (Drexel(83) & AU) and one top 150 team (BU(144)). Besides the two regular season wins over AU, we have a top 100 win over Quinnipiac (66) who is now 12-0 in the MAAC and 17-6 overall. Is a top 50 RPI, regular season championship, a 28-5 record, a strong out of conference schedule, and no bad losses enough?

No. As Jay Bilas has often said, bubble teams have to show you who they can beat. All teams have showed you who the can lose to but are you capable of winning games once you’re in the field?

Frankly, Syracuse and Iowa State did not produce the kind of close scores I would want to see as a member of the selection committee either. The gap in women’s hoops between the very good and good is enormous.

I think you're right. The Syracuse game was closer than the score might look. We missed an opportunity there. No doubt a couple P5 teams with weaker resumes than ours will get in. ESPN has us as a 12 seed, which would be very good for a PL team. Just need to keep winning and hope AU stumbles along the way.

That’s it and I didn’t mean to come off as negative. This is a great team I believe capable of beating a 5 seed. We simply don’t have a high profile win to validate an at-large bid from the committee.

Agree! Playing Iowa State “even for three of the four quarters” doesn’t cut it.

Women picked up a tough win at Lehigh tonight. Went down by 7 in the 3rd Q, but came back in the 4th to lead by as many as 12. Had to hang on at the end to win by 5. Still tied with American at 11-1. On to the next one. Kate Walker went over 1000 pts tonight despite playing sparingly her freshman year.

A tough, hard-fought win tonight over Lehigh. Very physical game and the usual fine job of officiating kept it interesting. The ladies gutted out a close win

Yes, definitely an extreme back-and-forth game.

BU 34, LU 22 first 17 minutes
LU 22, BU 3 over next 8 minutes
4-4 for next 3 minutes
BU 27, LU 7 over next 10 minutes
LU 13, BU 5 for final 2 minutes

BU 73, LU 68 TOTAL

Women rolled to an easy win over Colgate today for their 11th straight. They remain tied with American at 12-1. American got a close win at home over Lehigh 50-47.
