RE: 2019 CAA Women's Basketball Championships
Lots of roll players stepped up. Washington showed a crossover step back move I haven't seen in our program before. Hendrixson found her shot at least for 1 game. Metzel had a good game as timer pointed out.

I found myself rooting for UNCW to come back. They're a collection of talent more than a basketball team. NE ran a nice half court offense sort of like us. I always felt like we owed NE one maybe because they have a Scranton player as their star and I always have a soft spot for PA players.

Hofstra played a better fourth quarter to lose 69-48.

You were tied at 23 at halftime, tied at 54 after regulation, and won 73-69 in overtime.

The Final is tomorrow at 1:00 P.M. SNY, NBC Sports Philadelphia, and NBC Sports Washington.

Our highest scoring period was that overtime period.

Northeastern is very solid, hope they get picked for the WNIT. They had a top 100 RPI last time I checked.

RE: 2019 CAA Women's Basketball Championships
agree with northeastern being a nice team. my favorite stat is we were 0-12 from 3 and still beat a good team. other drexel teams wouldn't have been able to go inside the way we could with metzel and we would've lost. she saved our season.

on one hand...we've had a tougher road to reach the final. on the other...we've knocked out 2 teams with first team all conference players despite shooting poorly in one of those games.

hopefully we'll see some of you there tomorrow.

#1 - It's a lot easier working the game than sitting in the stands watching it.

#2 - The cheerleaders and band got a rousing welcome when they arrived just before half due to their bus breakdown.

#3 - Our Dance Team has kicked butt.....

#4 - The "T" on NU's head coach did allow some breathing room and altered how the final minutes played out.

#5 - If Metzel doesn't make the all-tourney team there needs to be a Mueller investigation. Right now she's got to be in the discussion for Tournament MOP.

#6 - The loneliest guys at the Bob were the two running the beer table.

#7 - The Bob PA guy continues to drive me crazy.

#8 - What's with the annoying background over the sound system that sounds like pigeons cooing or owls?

#9 - Kudos to NU's band for sheer numbers and enthusiasm.

#10 - Is there anyone more of a "pest" to opponents' PGs than Nihil?

#11 - Not sure a single offensive charge call was made in the game and NU took advantage of that.

#12 - Took it as an omen that I was given a ticket for the Championship game when I checked in for today's game.....

#13 - Tip of the hat to DELDOT's sense of humor with the overhead electronic warning signs advising "Drive Slow - Leprechaun Crossing"

RE: 2019 CAA Women's Basketball Championships
I wasn't able to catch the game, but I was checking the score frequently. Fortunately I was too busy to get emotionally caught up in it. I'm sure for those like Timer who were at the BOB or watching online, it must have been an emotionally draining game. But not worse than last year's OT thriller vs. Delaware. Hopefully there were no injuries like in last year's semi-final. I'm going to try to watch some replay before bed, and get up and ready to head to the BOB tomorrow afternoon, and be back at night for my daughter's 3rd school performance.

I just saw the box score after seeing carp's post and was shocked to confirm that they won this game despite not hitting a 3-pointer. Just like last year, this teams really struggled with their shooting playing on multiple days. Hopefully, they can rest well and get their shooting touch ready for tomorrow. That is a major concern. Well see if the Greenberg/Metzel combo can muscle their way to victory tomorrow against a tough, physical Towson team.

RE: 2019 CAA Women's Basketball Championships
Yesterdays game was one I expected to happen that would knock us out of the tournament. We were terrible on offense. No movement, no scoring. Free throws kept the dream alive and we went 23-27. We did not score a basket the final 5ish minutes of the game. TO go to overtime with that is lucky, at best. We came out ready in OT and played well that period. The T on NU's coach was questionable and certainly helped. Count our blessings and get ready for Towson this afternoon.

RE: 2019 CAA Women's Basketball Championships
http://stats.statbroadcast.com/broadcast/?id=251605 has statistics. It was supposed to start at 1:00 P.M., but hasn't started, so I checked the "Notes" tab, and it says it will start at 5:00 P.M. I hope SNY, NBC Sports Philadelphia, and NBC Sports Washington still show it. Your website doesn't know about the time change.

Edit: ESPN's bottom line says Towson leads 39-38 in the fourth quarter. Since the game really is in progress, I have no idea why the statistics aren't working and it isn't on TV. Could there be a big power outage or technical difficulties?

You had a bad ending and lost 53-49. It is Towson's first time in the NCAA Tournament, and you've lost 5 of the last 8 Finals. Both teams had a lot of turnovers in the fourth quarter.

RE: 2019 CAA Women's Basketball Championships
Really a devastating loss, since the window of opportunity was there and they didn't get it done. It probably would have hurt less if they lost to JMU. Towson is not a better team, but they played better than Drexel today, when it counted most. Lots of turnovers in the final minutes. Drexel led 46-43 with less than 2 minutes to go and had plenty of chances to distance themselves but couldn't get it done. Drexel took a 46-43 lead with 3:07 to go and didn't score again until Brown hit a desperation 3 with 2 seconds left. I thought there were a lot of non calls that could have been fouls against Towson. But I've always said that if you don't want the officials to determine the outcome of the game, then you have to play about 10 points better.

Next year Drexel should be better, but so will just about everyone else in the conference, so I feel as this this might have been their final shot for quite a while.

RE: 2019 CAA Women's Basketball Championships
Yes Evan there was an outage the caa announced very late and put a different link up. However it was on college sports live the entire time too.

JB you are correct. Last 2 minutes were painful to watch. We had the game won, Towson was turning it over like it was their job and we could not capitalize and put them away. We let them hang around and then they made shots. Then we created a bunch of turnovers ourselves to let them escape. It sucks to have lost 5 of the last 8 caa title games. This was a ridiculous opportunity without JMU and we absolutely blew it. This was not one of our better teams. We have struggled scoring and shooting all year, and these last two tournament games showed that. It was actually quite impressive that Denise was able to get a team with no players who could shoot as far as she did. Onto the WNIT.

RE: 2019 CAA Women's Basketball Championships
yes this one hurts. it's different from the other losses because it was our game and tournament to lose. credit towson for the defense, rebounding, and clutch shooting. we kept the door open and they walked right through it.

i was surprised we didn't look inside to metzel more. that's what kept us alive yesterday. we were reluctant to take the ball straight at their center. way too many perimeter shots when they weren't falling. when we went inside it was to greenberg who just wasn't converting. she turned the ball over a few times in there and seems more comfortable scoring off cuts.

i thought we could've tried to pressure them more too. they outscored us 13-2 in fast break points. rebounding was a problem again too.

it's really the first time i'm starting to wonder what we need to do different. the easy answer is get a stud player. greenberg is a great player within our system but i'm talking somebody who can just come down and drop a jumper when you need it. greenberg could be that type of player if she gets to the balls to the wall/marginean approach who would get to the basket or die trying. that's why she got calls.

The internet was down today on their entire ****** campus. I'm somebody who always uses credit cards to buy stuff, but I had to empty out my wallet to buy tickets and didn't have enough cash left for food. I didn't know that the game wasn't on TV due to the outage. I thought I saw Ari across the way broadcasting the game into his cell phone, probably because he couldn't get any connection.

I not really sure what else she can do other than maybe get more size and physical players, but I guess it's hard to find them willing to go to Drexel and be comfortable playing within the system. I honestly thing that if the entire conference can do their job OOC, then there's a good chance that this conference can get 5-6 top 100 teams and get multiple NCAA bids. There were very few senior heavy teams this year in the CAA. The league is going to be much stronger. Drexel is also going to be stronger.
So while the window to win a CAA Championship may have closed this year, I do think that their opportunity to get into the NCAA Tournament next year has not.

RE: 2019 CAA Women's Basketball Championships
We need a shooter or 2. Denise has always had good shooters on her rosters. That is what was different this year. We just did not have any good shooters. Couple that with the relative lack of size and it makes it difficult as we saw.

Speaking of lack of size, did you notice that Nihill didn't play the 2nd half against Towson last week when the blew them out in the 2nd half. Then she barely played in the championship game despite having such a great championship game last year. Unless there was some sort of injury, I was thinking that with her lack of size, she just couldn't match up against Jeter or some of their other taller guards, and felt that Washington was a better fit, with Hendrixson in as their really only natural shooter.

I had just checked my DVR and noticed that NBCSP+ did not televise the game, and showed skiing as filler programming instead. There was no explanation on the screen explaining why it wasn't being shown. I guess the days of having a satellite on a big truck to carry the game is a thing of the past. The game was probably being broadcast through an internet feed.

RE: 2019 CAA Women's Basketball Championships
The game was supposed to be on NBC Philadelphia live on + and taped on the regular channel. I taped them to see if we got on tv and got a replay of the Sixers-Kings game and cross country skiing. Let me know if you ever get the story on that.

I noticed that with Nihill too. One of their game winning jumpers was over Metzel so having a bigger player didn't matter in that case. The lineup we had out there wasn't scoring and maybe she could have facilitated things a little better.

You're right we are loaded for next year. We'll lose again if we just expect jump shots to fall. There has to be some balance (or we have to do the right things to be balanced which I'm not convinced we did on Saturday). Greenberg has to get to the rim. I'm curious what we'll do with Brown. I would either teach her a post up game or have her get a little smaller so she can play Greenberg's type of game.
