That was one of the slopier games I've seen the ladies play in recent memory. How can a team that we outsize in every position out rebound us? And how can a team who's tallest players stand only 6' 0" still manage so many points in the paint?? I commend the ladies for doing enough to win the game but that kind of effort wont due when the B1G starts. Ane neither will Coach B's insistence on using, basically, a six person rotation. It will be interesting to see if Coach B continues to rotate who is the favored sixth person in her rotation or if she sticks with one person. Apparently Bailey is either injured or too sick to play and Johnson has fallen so deep in Borton's doghouse that she might never see any court time. Pity...

This game was difficult to watch and I think that Borton is giving Navy's quality of play and talent a little too much credit here. The Gophers really should have been able to either dominate inside or go to an inside-out style of play when Navy put on the double and triple team. I agree that this game would have been an "L" with most B1G teams despite Borton's assertions. Well, at least it's over and it's a "W". Hoping for a little more authoritative smack-down against Loyola on Tuesday. Go Gophers!

Amen InformedOne! I will be interested to see how much gas the starters have left in their tanks come Tuesday. All three backcourt players for the Gophers played the entire second half and almost all the game. I'm not sure why Borton bothers with recruiting so many players when she only plans to play a small percentage of them.

Good shooting by Banham (especially on threes). The word seems to be out on the Gophers' perimeter defense, though, as yet another team scored a lot on them via threes (though Navy's percentage was low, they still took 26 threes).
