How much you wanna bet regardless what happens next year, she’ll get it! Make up reward!
    Good commentary glvcpro. It is a very hollow award going forward. Has become very political. Sad.

    The Panthers finish at 21 wins and 8 Losses. This team seemed to have bought into Hesser's system and he finally has something to build on for the future.

    The ladies just won their 31st game and now stand at 31 and 2. They will likely face Ashland whose coach has a career record of 100 wins and 2 Losses.

    Winning on Ashland's home floor will be a tall Order. Drury did win at Ashland two years ago by 26. Last year Drury lost by 12 at Ashland .

    Drury has shot 10 of 45 from three so far in this regional. It may be a long Monday night if that trend continues. Having to rely on defense only will make it very hard to stay out of foul trouble on Ashland's floor.

    Good year for Drury. Disappointing that we didn't handle Findlay's zone better, or take care of the basketball with all the silly turnovers, but DU was by far the most inexperienced team in this regional. It was a heck of a job just to make it there with so many new parts.

    Good luck to the Lady Panthers tomorrow - they'll need it. They're in their 9th regional final in the program's 18 year history, though. That's pretty impressive.

    Lady Panthers had the game tied with 2 minutes left and lost by 6. They had 2 free throw attempts to Ashlands 22. This is the only stat Ashland led in

    I was for Ashland but why in the hell do you need to call a tech at the very end of a game. Makes NCAA look as bad as they are.

    The ref called a Drury player for a foul as the shot clock expired when the defender was obviously FEET away from the shooter. Same ref promptly called a technical on coach Miller for "Stomping her foot". That ref single handedly sealed the outcome of that game.

    Great try for Drury. Ironic though, Drury out scored Lewis the game before by 19 points at the foul line.

    Your description of that last foul is so misleading. Watch it 20 times or so. Stop action. Slow motion, etc.

    OK it is a little closer than I thought. I still don't think it's a foul. The tech was definitely a bad call. And you can't tell me as hard as Ashland plays that they only give up 2 foul shots.

    Not agreeing with the technical, but the fouls stat was 22-14 wasn't it? Not a tremendous disparity.

  12. Default Re: Drury Panthers

    22-2. That decided the game.

    Ignore other realities. The fouls disparity was 22-14 (8). When Drury beat Lewis, Drury was called for 9 fewer fouls (24-15) than Lewis. Was that unfair?

    *For Drury to shoot 26% from the 3-point line in the NCAA regional and do so well is a real testament to a strong, quality team.

    I'm not ignoring anything. The referee's whistle controlled the outcome of that game.I'm not saying the opposition did not deserve the victoriy

    Strange. The referee controlled the outcome but the opposition may have deserved to win? Ok I think we're finished here.

    I'm not saying there was bad intent by the referees. If you look at the stats there is one category that jumps off the page. 22 to 2 free throw attempts. It's not just the disparity,, it's the fact Drury just shot 2 free throws. It would look a lot better if it was 30 to 10 attempts.

    Just because of the fluke in the difference of free throw attempts does not mean Ashland does not deserve the victory. They don't blow the whistle.
    MARCH MADNESS

    Agree that some teams shouldn't foul so much.

    For the year, both Drury and Ashland average taking 20+ FT per game and give up about 17 FT per game. Between this year and last year's regional final (both Drury vs Ashland at Ashland), free throws shot were 54-7 in favor of Ashland. 7 free throws shot in 2 games versus the most aggressive DII girls team in the country? That's a bit of a stretch if you ask me.

    However, probably the biggest problem is that the 2 best teams in the country may have just played each other in the Sweet 16. They should go away from the purely geographic based regional.

    Yes it is hardly fair that Drury has to go to Ashland two years in a row. I do think the N0.1 seed should host but if Drury is one of the top 8 in the country, they should get to host their own regional. Problem just becomes there is not enough out of region competition to tell who is the top 8 in the country.

    Honestly, I think it's easier to do on the women's side than the men. It's a no-brainer that DU is a top 8 team on the women's side. Both MSU-Billings and Union (TN) won their regionals and made the Elite 8 this year, and Drury beat both of them.

    I guess you'd have trouble deciding who would be the 7th and 8th teams, but you'd never run into a situation where 2 of the top 3 are in the same region.
