WBB is truly terrible

Score 11 points in the FIRST HALF. Shoot 17% from the field and 25% from the free throw line. Just the poorest excuse for a Division I team.

Poorest exhibition of basketball at this level I have seen in quite a while-all three teams.

I live near Coastal Carolina University in Myrtle Beach, SC. Their woman's team scored 124 points last week against the first place team in their conference. I realize this is off topic but WOW!!!!

one of the worst games I've ever viewed(all of it) at any level. It was an embarrassment to see our ladies performance on a local broadcast of nbsnw. It is an inept,poorly prepared team that is representing our school. The first 3 quarters were uninspiring including Drexel as well. 19-11 at the end of the first half :roll: Tina must be laughing upon seeing the results.
Where are the positive additions of our 1st year or redshirt recruits? most don't hit the hardwood and those that do have not improved our team's performance. Is Davenport's career finished at UD? where was Wade today? Are a few others who have played lots of minutes in past years been in the doghouse this season? Are the transfers sitting out this year going to be positives next season?

I feel sorry for Enobosi-she deserves better players surrounding her on the floor after she battled back from an acl tear to play her final year :(
Most every team knows to double team her.

Really tough to watch. I expected a much different game knowing UD had a three game winning streak and took Drexel to OT in Philly.

I just looked at the box and thought it was from a CYO game. I think this team’s collective goal is to get the season over.

I know my goal is to get this season over also.

I attended a CYM game prior and made an effort to drive to Newark just as the game started ; the middle school girls were more fun to watch.

Chrissi should pull out a page from her Danny Rocco playbook and steal that Drexel coach away. She is outstanding and always has the Dragons competitive. Imagine what she could do with much better facilities and more support???

Defensively we played a really strong game. We also rebounded well. But on the offensive end that was really hard to watch. Someone needs to get Dickey in the gym and teach her how to shoot. The kid is so athletic and is a rebounding machine but she missed “so many” short open looks. She could average 20 points per game if she could make a few more of those 5 to 10 foot jumpers.

Offensive rebound opportunities are plentiful, when you shoot the ball that poorly.

Isn’t the “someone” you are referring to the actual coaching staff?

Yes UDJoe I was referring to the coaching staff. It’s tough to watch this team. We miss so many lay ups and short range jumpers. Some of these players when close to the basket, are just heaving the ball in the general direction of the rim with no plan or idea where it’s going.
