I am very happy that we beat LSU and advanced to the round of 32, specially the way we have played the last few weeks.
Next, we play Baylor in Waco. It is going to take a miracle for us to win. Even keeping the game close will not be easy.
I believe a couple of years ago (when we had seniors Brittany Boyd and Roshenda Gray), we had to play Baylor in Waco in the round of 32 and they beat us by double digit. Let's hope the results will be different this year.
I felt that Coach G called two very timely TOs near the end of the game.
LSU was starting to bother them and speed them up with their traps/presses, and Coach recognized that and called the TOs to settle the team down

Also I give our coaches credit for good short-notice preparation.
I was at a wedding in SLO on a farm and could not get video and only could get sporadic Twitter updates. Sounded like a good start (a good sign of good prep). Someone tweeted that LSU was shooting mid range jumpers in the warmups for the second half so be aware of what they were going to focus on. Pretty nerve wracking toward the end but it sounded like they played with poise at the end. This was a huge win in many ways.
Way to go Bears gutting that one out, we would fall under the pressure in the past.
Sue Bird made a good observation: we gotta stop relying on the lob pass.
Cowling had an unprecedented amount of turnovers in this game (mostly forcing the lob) luckily LSU didn't convert a lot of those in to points.
Courtney has not looked like herself for awhile...looks hesitant at times (would prefer to pass the ball) to shoot. I'm glad team is moving on to give her another game before she closes out her college career.
