Kept the turnovers to a minimum again today, which is certainly helping. They've also picked up the defensive effort the last few games. Also had another explosive 3rd quarter, not that the 1st & 2nd were bad.

Glad they have a couple of home games after finals before they go to Iowa St. If they play with them with the kind of confidence they've shown lately, it will be a good game.

normally don't care about bracketology projections this early in the year, but thought it worth pointing out that current espn bracket has us as an 11 seed, pretty impressive, hopefully we keep playing well and get there

The best seed for a PL team has been a 13 - which I believe has happened four times. An 11 would be very impressive. One thing that may hurt, even if the team performs well, is that the women's committee doesn't just try to seed the teams, but also uses geography as a significant factor for lower seeds. The women's tournament - unlike the men's - does not make money, so they try to contain costs where it's not too outrageous.

Yes, I doubt they will fly them to Stanford, though it would be a great experience for the players.

Curious. How many women's basketball athletic scholarships does Bucknell give? Are these all full rides or are some partial?

I am fairly certain it is 13 - the same number as the men. Definitely not less. In women's basketball, a team can give out as many as 15 but not many do.

Unlike most sports, basketball scholarships are all full rides. No partials.

Women ranked 10th in latest mid major poll. Interesting that Quinnipiac, season opening #1, has dropped out of the top 25.

They had bad back-to-back losses vs Central Michigan and Princeton. In the Massey ratings, they fell from 59th to 90th. CMU btw is ranked 26th of all schools, so that was not at all a bad loss, but still two losses will have an effect. Q'pac btw has had a brutal schedule. They may have bitten off a bit too much after their great run last year.

Bison btw are rated at #77 by Massey.
