We looked really bad down the stretch. I think it was shortly after we hit a 3 to take a lead, but I recall us failing to score on a 3 on 1 with a few minutes left. That can't happen.

Wisconsin threw up 81 points and turned you over 20 times… coaching.

Plus you need to be realistic Wisconsin knew they would have a chance in this game because they knew the opponent is very average at best.. One of their best chances for a W

It just seems like a punishment to watch Gopher Basketball now men's and women's.

Rose and Katie making some very DUMB choices late in the game.. I'm sorry but those two shouldn't be taking shots late in the game.. Battle stopped attacking another scoreless 2nd half from Braun...

unreal...
Agree, I’m hoping Braun can find her shooting touch again, we need to put it on a milk carton.

eh, Gophers play really fast, top 20 in the country in pace. I just dont think defense was the main problem. Turnovers absolutely, and poor shooting. Gophers gotta find a way to get Braun going, shes really been struggling.
get her slashing to the rim.. would be nice if she got the whistle like some other players do especially another freshman Cotie (OSU) who shot 13 free throws alone today for Ohio State..

Yep. 9 assists (half as many as Wisconsin, which played better team ball) on 26 baskets is not a good sign.

How does this picture happen? Look at each Gopher.

The Badgers have averaged 68.3 points per game this season. Today they scored 81. That's a gap of 12.7 points.

The Badgers defense has allowed opponents to score an average of 71.9 points this season. Today the Gophers scored 77.

I really have no idea what happened today... just as I don't know how such a picture could happen.

Disappointing! Defense was poor. They were tight. The pressure of being the favorites and playing well against OSU was too much for them. Three point shooting poor (4/21, 19%). Too many turnovers (19 vs. 12). Not enough points off turnovers (13 vs 27) and on fast breaks (16 vs. 21)--hustle plays.

Three players shot all of the three pointers (KB 1/5, MH 1-6, MB 2-10) and not one shot over 20%. At some point you need to look for other player options to score the ball.

also someone needs to go find the Mara from the Lehigh Penn State game.. we need that Mara to return ASAP.. I know teams are face guarding her and making it tough for her to get the ball.. but that's when our coaches need to adjust and get her going another way.. like getting herself to the free throw line.. can't just settle for 3's... what happen to that nice pull up jumper she was going to early on this season.

thats part of the problem, theres no depth right now. Oberg has really struggled the last 2 games, Cayton is out of control, Gradwell isnt gonna score much, Czinano maybe could of played more but thats about it. If the starters struggle the team is gonna struggle, thats just the way it is this year.

Gave up too many uncontested layups in the first half, and too much "hero" ball from multiple players when the game was on the line. KB has to realize that her job is to set up her teammates, not throw up wild shots that either get blocked or have no chance of going in. (She did play well until the 4th.)

100% her and Rose.. tried to do way to much.. Rose had Mal/Mara open in the corner late a few times.. but rather tried to split the double team.. or got blocked.. once again the black hole.. and

Katie defense kept us in it in the 3rd and 4th.. but man some of those shots she takes its like why?

you can see bad shots coming from both sometimes before it even happens.. it's like no no no.. crap.

The U is a college basketball wasteland. Two really bad programs. Frankly, it's pathetic.

then don't be a fan? nobody is making you be a fan of either of the programs..
Uh oh, somebody is mad that I pointed out the freaking obvious. Truth hurts. And I've been a fan of both programs for more than three decades. But, you're right, the U needs less fans who actually care about the programs. That is also obvious from the attendance numbers.

We aren't playing Lehigh and River falls anymore

thanks captain obvious.. here I thought we were... she had 26 against Penn State and took over in that game.. the coaches needs to figure out how to get her the ball more.. in better position so she can score.. can't have her going scoreless in two halves...

Yeah. Still shaking my head about the one where someone (foolishly) passed the ball to Micheaux at the free throw line, where Wisconsin knew to leave her alone. You could see her pause, think "What should I do?" And then decide, "Drive to the basket and take an out-of-control shot."

YEP! spot on.. she reminds me of KAT when he does the same thing for the Wolves then usually turns it over or commits an offensive foul.. I wish Rose would learn how to pass out then repost.. rather then rushing her shot through 2 or 3 players... because when she does that usually doesn't turn out well for us..

Both teams are giving heavy, heavy playing minutes to freshmen. They are playing for a big payoff later. Have to judge this season based on what the goals are which is a payoff later.

There are different expectations for freshmen and veterans.

Whalen has an historic recruiting class underway.

In two years they are going to be juniors and seniors. Then the goal will be to win big. Then the wins-losses will matter. Right now the goal is to develop for the payoff later.
