Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Green Bay had better win the Horizon League tournament: unbeaten last week, the Phoenix tonight lost their second game in a row at UIC. The Flames' Jasmine Bailey finished with 24 and 14; her team shot over 52%.

UIC hasn't beaten a ranked opponent for at least eight years-- and UWGB won't be ranked after tonight. Nobody got hurt, or not seriously: they just haven't been playing very well.

Flames coach Lisa Ryckbosch: "If you would have asked me a week ago if [UWGB] were capable of losing two games in a row, I would have said no. I would have said I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody beats them. But two in a row? Boy, I just expected them to be ready to kill somebody."
