Tennessee Played Well But Not In The Cards

The ladies played well but MSU played the way Championship teams have to play, especially at the end of the game. I love the fact that the ladies did not give up and hung in there to the end. We can come up with a lot of what if's but we played our best and got beat. We gave #4 a very hard test. In the end, MSU's defense was more than Tennessee could overcome. Vic has done a super job with a 5 starless team. All and all there is still hope in Knoxville if we continue with the same mentality and effort for the rest of the year.

Untimely turnovers, and missed layups were the difference

Along with an inability to rattle MS's PG. She is a heady player who controls their offense magnificently. I figured she would be the one to exploit Tennessee's defense.

Did they really play "well"? No 3 point makes, ball security a joke, air balls from several guards (you ARE on scholarship) should be able to at least hit the rim! No boxing out at numerous points in the game. Runs of 10 straight points at least twice during the game by State...

I like Jordan but we need a elite point guard play that demand ball to set up and run the offense. To many one on one plays and forced shots will not work against elite defense.

Tennessee shot 31%. Tennessee missed every three-point shot. Tennessee had 17 turnovers but only 6 assists. You consider that playing their best? How would you define poor play?

Quality teams consistently shoot 50% or better. They also have more assists than turnovers. I didn't see that from either team today.

I'm sorry but shooting 31% is not playing well. I know there are more facets to the game than shooting, but ultimately the game is won by who has the most points. 31% FG does not cut it against any SEC opponent, no matter how well you play defense.
Also, I was not very impressed with MSU. We lost to a mediocre team -- I don't care that they are undefeated, they are not that great.

This team plays much better with Jordan at the point.You only need to look today when she was not in the game in the 2nd QTR ( on the bench with 2 fouls along with Nared ),they were leading 20-19 going into 2nd Qtr and were trailing 41-34 at the half....in essence that was when we lost the game imo.Then compare when she was in the game in 3rd QTR and 4th QTR ,they came back to take the lead but dumb ,unforced turnovers cost them the game after that.

We played badly--what game were you watching? We shot 30 percent for the game (awful), had 17 turnovers to 6 assists (terrible). The only good thing we did in this game was make free throws--we had at least 30 points from the free-throw line--astounding. Vivians is athletic and skilled--but otherwise we have more talent. We just don't know how to play good basketball.

We did play with effort--but it was low IQ basketball by coaches and players, in keeping with our Low IQ play for at least 10 years. It is infuriating--to me, anyway--that this program is saddled with terrible coaching.

There was absolutely no focus in the 2nd qrt. And the 2nd half they play well in spurts. How???? How???? HTH do you lose focus playing a top 5 team with so much on the line????

Wait until next year. We have the #1 class of players coming into K-Town. They should shoot lights out.
