IIRC, Notre Dame recruited at least 3 Bears: Layshia, Justine, and Talia.
I thought Cal looked great against Iowa.
Layshia was 0-5 from beyond the arc, but on target, so hopefully that falls for her against ND.
Our post game really clicked.
Eliza has come a long way offensively. With ND's guards, we will need her on the floor a ton, so I'm glad she's been able to knock down shots.
Boyd was named player of the game by the broadcasters (and I thought they did a great job calling the game. They knew our personnel very well. I've always liked Doris Burke). Boyd did everything, but I think our fans will be most pleased by the 8 assists to 2 turnovers.
One concern I had was the size mismatch between Logic and Boyd. Fortunately, Logic shied away from posting up, though she was often in favorable position to do so. But ND's more experienced guards might not pass up those opportunities.
Afure played 6 more minutes than Sherbert at the wing and looked more impactful. It will be interesting to see who gets deployed and how in defending ND's elite backcourt.
The Iowa PG was getting to the basket pretty easily. And Skylar Diggins is the best guard in the nation. This makes me nervous.
I don't know why but the team really don't provide any weak side help when some one drives. I see their guards penetrate but instead of any bigs or wings helping out they just let them go by. This must be something that is taught to the team ..perhaps so that their bigs do not get into foul trouble. I just find it weird.
31-31 at halftime. Brittany and Talia each have 2 fouls. Natalie Novosel of ND has 17 points including 9 of 10 from the line. Our entire team is 1 of 4 from the line. We've made more FGs, including 4 threes. ND is leading on the boards 20-14. Turnovers not a problem for either team.
Jobbed by the refs but the real news, we don't stand a chance against Peters' inside presence. Clarendon playing pretty damn magnificently notwithstanding a few turnovers. Carrying the team. Cal and the turnovers. Ugh.
