Nice little run there at the end of the 3rd. It's ridiculous how well Rice is shooting the ball.

I'm guessing Skinner is hurt with Mar getting all of these minutes?

Down 11 with 5 left. Not impossible.

I’m wearing my Delaware sweatshirt, but it wasn’t enough. However, I am so proud of these kids! What a great comeback and more importantly a terrific building block for this program. And a special thank you to Lizzie for her heart and leadership!

The future is bright.

Stats show they took 43 more shots than Rice! They also a huge edge in offensive rebounds. Strange game.

In today’s game, she needs to pound the weight room and get tougher. There’s a reason that she is not at a premiere school.

Well said, Sally. I could not agree more on what you wrote there.

Lizzie finished her career ( I think) in style.

I really don’t mean to be an ****, but if no one points things out, it will continue.

Would you say great season “boys”? No, you would say guys or men. I know how hard it has been for women athletes at UD, starting with my field hockey team playing at the field at the Women’s Gym....which rarely got mowed. I don’t think you meant it to be condescending, but it was. We can all do better.
