Pretty lethargic start for us against a very undermanned (or is it underwomaned?) Youngstown St. and we trail 15-14 at the end of the 1st Q.   IU only 2-11 on FG in the quarter but fortunately we were 8-10 on FT.  Gulbe picked up 2 fouls in the quarter.   Schires for YSU also with 2 fouls.

Well, we started playing with a little more urgency and at the half IU leads 41-38 but YSU is not rolling over and playing dead.  We really need a much better effort in the second half.             

Penn 14 pts.; Wise 11 pts.            Wise and Penn 4 reb each.          Given our size advantage, we are not dominating the boards as we should.  IU with 17 total reb but we've allowed YSU to grab 15.  Gulbe, Penn & Allen each with 2 fouls.

End of 3 and we have a 63-46 lead only giving up 8 YSU points in the quarter.

Penn - 17 points, 6 rebounds       Patberg - 10 points, 5 assists            Wise - 13 points, 4 rebounds     Gulbe 5 rebounds            Berger only 5 pts but she has 5 assists.

Certainly don't need any  more slow starts like they had the first half tonight, but they certainly took care of business in the second half and take a 93-56 win.  

Patberg 18 pts, 4 reb, 5 assts

Penn 17 pts, 6 reb 

Wise 15 pts, 4 reb

Berger 9 pts, 8 assts

They took charge of the boards in the second half and overall played very well.    Outscored YSU 52-18 in the half.  Also finished with 22 assists on 34 made shots.

Very encouraging that Yeaney played 10 min. in her first game back against Butler and today she played 16.

Off topic, but Purdue played at South Carolina today and lost 85-49. 

Not surprising. Versyp has done to PU what Mike Davis did to IU. Followed a legend and did great at first then drove program to mediocrity. Difference is PU refuses to get rid of her so they alternate between a fringe tourney team and missing all together. Women's BBall was PU's elite sport through the mid 2000's as a dynasty similar to IU soccer till Versyp got her hands on it. Fortunately for IU soccer when they got Mr. Mediocrity in Mike Freitag they dismissed him in a few years and Todd Yeagley has returned it to elite. Not sure why PU lets Versyp keep lowering their standards but not complaining.  

Thankfully for us Moren (who played for PU) has a 10 million dollar buyout clause in her contract that pretty much prohibits her from going to Boilermakers after what Versyp did to us spurning IU for PU. Looks like it worked out for us better then for PU even though it took many years to play out that way:).
