    Playing a strong Okie St. team at 1pm on ESPN or ESPN2.

    Clair, what is up with your UNC girls?

    It will be big for the Tigers if UNC can not come back from being 16 down with 5 left in the 1st. UNC has many playmakers but Louisville is dominating downlow. Good sign for the Tigers if UNC survives.

    Louisville still up by 16 with 4:30 remaining.

    Neither of those teams can play Dee like LSU.

    Again. Looks good but we have to get by Okla St.

    Also, those refs are letting them play. Lot of hacking going on, very few fouls.

    UNC looking better putting full court pressure the 2nd half and have narrowed the lead to 2 points.

    Many of their points are coming from leaning jumpers 5-10ft from the basket which will not work consistently with Fowles in the middle. Lets get by Okie St. and I am slightly more comfortable going against UNC if they get by.

    The refs missed two calls on shot clock violations. The first was easy to miss but they stopped play for five minutes to review the second and still missed the call. I felt like we were playing football at Auburn.

    Hopefully these two will wear out and the winner will fall to LSU.

    The disparity in free throws 44 to 10 saved UNC today. If they play that way in the next game, they won't be headed to the Final Four.

    I think LSU is better...they just need to play smart.

    yep. the cowgirls are on a roll and feel they have something to prove. two years ago they were 0-16 in conference play to sweet 16 today. to say they feel they are on a mission is an understatement.

    as i mentioned after the last game, for me, its a family feud thing. i have already gotten a call from my father today, and we are having brunch with my parents and sister in the morning. they (parents and sis) bleed orange and black just like i bleed purple and gold. if the unthinkable happens, i am gonna be freakin miserable in the morning!!!

    In both of UNC's last two games they let the other team take a decent lead in the first half. LSU is too good to let them go on a big run to take it back. I like their chances.

    Wow... Carolina had 12 fouls that entire game to UL's 27.

    North Carolina obviously beatable, but this OSU game worries me. The thing that LSU has going for it is experience. OSU has never made it to the Elite 8 in their history.
