Much better start to this game. Good balance for a change. Holmes with 8 and Gulbe with 6. That’s the type of contributions we need to get out of them to be truly dangerous in March. Also, my hoops crush continues to grow for Grace Berger. I call her Baby Hornsby, because she’s got one of the best looking strokes I’ve seen since Kyle used to shoot ‘em in Assembly.

Admittedly I turned my attention to the men’s game, but love the win Ladies. Good looking box score too. Four players in double digits. Ali being Ali and doing Ali things. One thought though, can we get Nebraska’s Leah Brown as a grad transfer??? Indiana kid that got away right there.
