I like that it’s a later game, gives me time to do a couple of laps around town. Probably will hit The Owlery- cool vegetarian/vegan restaurant (my daughter’s favorite, and I think it’s really good!) and Jiffy Treet after

Wake'em up at halftime Coach Moren.  Pretty weak performance and trail 37-31 at halftime.  Berger 12 pts; Patberg 7; Holmes 6.  Holmes  & Patberg 3 reb. each.  11 TOs for the half and outrebounded 20-14.  Shooting 50% FG but 0-4 on 3s.  Patberg & Yeaney each with 2 fouls.   MSU only shooting 39% but they've hit 6 3-pointers.

C'mon girls, you can play better than this.

Two problems that half: Getting destroyed on boards including 9-2 on offensive end which has led to multiple second chance points for MSU. Also 6 Spartan threes to IU's none. Got to clean those two things up. Other issues crept in that half but those ones are the debilitating factors.

BTW: Attendance with the $1 tickets is 6,020 which is a season high and beats last weeks UCLA crowd by 800 or so which was previous best.  This is the ninth largest crowd in program history. UCLA last weekend was 15th.
