If we can keep FSU at arms reach when (and if) we have a lead, obviously we greatly improve our chances. Today's game should be a tough one, FSU has a great team. The only reason they are not in the top 10 is their schedule has not given them many elite teams to play outside of the ACC. Freshour drilled us for 21 points last game, including 3 threes; she will be a focus of our defense I'm sure.
Best of luck today again, ladies, LGD!!
Today's game is televised on FSN and ACCselect (free feed) at 3:30.
The Md.-UNC matchup in the first session should be very good as well.
Isn't FSU's WBB team caught up in the cheating scandal, as well?
Do you think this might pre-occupy their focus, or give them a feeling of greater cause?

I'd be surprised if this embarrassment were not on the players' minds.
This team is tough and the sanction could cause them to fight harder,because the removal of victories in the fall of 2006 and the fall and winter of 2007 is seen by many as unfair.
Its most profound impact is on Coach Bowden's 14 wins which will be stripped,making it almost impossible to catch Paterno in wins.
LGD!! We'll have the Twerps in the final if we win, but we have to win first.

Duke up by 17 now.
It even tops yesterday's near perfect performance, the ladies have a 22 point lead!
Duke leads 40-18 at the half. As one announcer observed, these two games in the ACC Tournament have been the best performances by this team so far this season. The defense is not such a surprise, but the offensive efficiency last night and in the first half today has been the most impressive I've seen since McCallie took over.
Thanks for the updates. I was finally able to get game tracker through ACCSelect - but it still shows 3 minutes left in the half. I'm feeling very technologically challenged.
Coach K: "Everybody wants to take responsibility when you win, but when you fail, all these fingers are pointing."
And just like that, Duke goes on a 7-0 run and pushes the lead back to 16.
20 point lead again. We rock!
