Down 4 in the 2nd quarter.
Looks like a decent crowd.

Struggled with Creighton in the regular season for whatever reason. Beat Depaul twice but lost to Creighton twice.

MU up 6 at half.
Didn't notice this, the Womens team has 1 senior... 1!
The womens team has 1 Junior...
This is a young, fast, good team. I rarely watch them, but that is great news for MUWBB future.

Does women's bball have quarters? Sincerely asking.

Nvm. Just looked it up. I actually like their rules. Team fouls reset each quarter and you're in bonus at 5 fouls. I like it.

Yeah I didn't know this until a week ago.
Women's plays 4 10 min quarters.

MU up 10 with 7 minutes left.
Our coach is in a walking boot... Classy move by her. ;)

Marquette has played very good defense. Largely controlled the Jays inside and let them miss from deep. 7 point lead with about 5 to play.

69-61 Marquette with 1:49 to play. Ladies looking good down the stretch.

Their fast break game looks familiar. Wojo and Kieger must have coffee together and discuss pace of play.

Wojo probably picked it up from Kieger. I do think they have a pretty good relationship though from what ive heard.

Marquette now up 72-63 with 23.1 to play. On the verge of having a chance to win the Big East Title at home.
Title: Re: Big East Tournament...the other one!
Post by: fjm on March 06, 2017, 04:51:10 PM
Game!
MUWBB 72, Creighton 65.
MU will play in the BET Championship tomorrow at 8:30pm at home at the AL!
First time in school history for the women.

Will it be on FS1? is that 8:30 Central?

For those of us who haven't paid attention this season, do the women have a chance at an at-large bid if they lose tomorrow?  Or does their season come down to this?  Either way, great to have them playing well too!
Title: Re: Big East Tournament...the other one!
Post by: SlowJoe on March 06, 2017, 05:01:42 PM
I'll go to the Championship game. They had an amazing season so far and hopefully can finish it with the Big East Title.

I'm a dummy. It's 8pm central yes.
FS1 or FS2. (Unsure which one)

NOT 830

Announcers today said this should help them move up a seed line. Sounds like probably an 8-9 seed

Amani Wilborn gets my SOTG vote. Creighton sagged off her and she made them pay. Great game, hope it's slow enough at work tomorrow that I can watch the final.

Did I hear somewhere that Sandy Cohen's sister plays for the women?

Yes, Natasha Hiedemann. Started slow today but had a few key baskets in the second half.
Title: Re: Big East Tournament...the other one!
Post by: Marquette Fan on March 06, 2017, 05:48:17 PM
Hiedeman took a hard fall in the Georgetown game yesterday and appeared to hurt her ankle.  She does not look to be 100 percent right now.

This is the second season the Women's game is doing quarters.  Both coaches today took advantage of the fact that they could advance the ball out of a timeout.

Tickets for tomorrow's final are only $10 and there is not a bad seat in the house.  Come out and support this team tomorrow!

Go Marquette!

Women are around 35 in the rpi.  With some really nice wins.  They r solidy in the field prolly 7-9 range.  With a 5-6 possible with a BE title.  Not bad for a predominantly underclassman lineup
Title: Re: Big East Tournament...the other one!
Post by: muwarrior69 on March 06, 2017, 06:01:23 PM
Are there any DePaul folks there? At least they can cheer their women on.

ESPN bracketology had them at an 8 the last few weeks but moved them to a 7 this morning.  It would be great to avoid a 1 seed on their home court as the top 16 teams host in the first and second round.

Outside of senior Yentz it has been pretty much the sophomores with playing time of late.  Junior Shantelle Valentine's pt has diminished lately.  The team wanted to get Yentz to the NCAA Tourney for the first time and they will achieve that goal.

I'll be watching on FS1 here in Jersey.

Welcome to the party, boys.

I am chuckling at some of these posts. If you had paid a scintilla of attention this year, you would have already known most of this stuff.  Actually, a walking boot is an upgrade for Coach Kieger. She was zooming around on a knee scooter earlier in the year.

Maybe next season you will start following them a little earlier. They aren't bad for a bunch of girls.    ;)

I'll be there tomorrow with my hoops-loving, 11 year old daughter. Her second MU ladies game this year, my first ever. She's pumped. Watched the game tonight and I have to say I'm pumped too!

The game @DePaul was one of the best games I've watched. 102-101 OT thriller. Both fan bases packed the place. Really excited about the state of the Marquette Basketball program!

+1. This group has been great and Coach Kieger has done an incredible job turning things around. I wish they were appreciated more.

Yep - think of what this board would be like if Wojo was in the BEast Tourney finals with the starters being all freshmen and sophomores.

So, I have to choose between viewing the MU women or the UWM men in their tourney champ games.  Tough call!  I think I'll go with the faster paced, more athletic, better brand of basketball... The ladies win!
Title: Re: Big East Tournament...the other one!
Post by: oldwarrior81 on March 07, 2017, 11:25:39 AM
the second game against DePaul was the afternoon after the guys played Xavier on NMD.
With a similar start. 
The ladies scored 21 points in the first 4 minutes of the game.

I think UWM is 6 and women at 8.

If I'm not mistaken, DePaul has two or three top players back that weren't around when we played them the first two times. Hopefully the home court advantage can bridge the gap. Would be an incredible accomplishment to win the tourney. Getting to the championship is very admirable given the youth of the team.
