WNIT – App State at Virginia

All she does is winBruising – “Vincent said it had been tough this season to be tough on her team. But it became easier to be tougher after the Samford loss. “With that loss, I didn’t like them anymore,” she said.” ASU (27-6) has set a school record for wins in a season, and is the first Southern Conference team to get past the second round since 1984. But the Mountaineers will have to get past Virginia (24-10) – a team that blasted ASU 80-48 in the season-opening game Nov. 11 – to keep this one going.”

DONE. Apps lose, 74-58.

    This has the makings of a good game. Seems like we are a different team than the one that started the season with the maturation of freshman scorer/rebounder Sydnor. Don't know much about UVA, but they beat NC State by 7 in Raleigh during the season and we beat them by 4 there last week in WNIT. GO LADY APPS!

    Hopefully will be a great game. Would be so ironic if a team that lost to Virginia 80-48 the first game of the season, beat them in thw NIT Sweet 16 to make it to the final 8. Go Apps!

    Nepotism runs rampant again. I dig Mark's ties to ASU, but is that where we are, hiring HS coaches?!

    I think the girls are a better team now than they were on Nov 11. UVa is bigger and their guards are solid, but we can beat em if we get them running.

    As far as the Ivey hire goes, I think we learned a lesson last time we hired guys that we were not familiar with. Not saying we have to stay "in the family", just more careful. Mark was a very good player and if he can instill half of his intensity and knowledge in our guys, we'll be fine.

    He wasn't hired as the head coach or coordinator. He is an assistant. He was a successful high school coach and no reason to believe he can't do a good job at ASU.

    Some of our fans seem to look for things to gripe about.

    Some people that gripe all the time are not very happy people…

    If Sydnor can stay out of foul trouble she is an excellent rebounder. Watching her at the NCSU game, she is a good answer to opponents bigs. Wish I could go to Charlottesville!

    Didn't have a good topic to post this under, but PFT latest draft has Quick going in first round.

    Mark is a great coach, there are great coaches at every level and bad ones as well, to suggest that hiring high school guys is a step down shows how stupid u r

    It looks like Mark is a very intense guy, similar to taht of Elliot. You need a guy with that kind of enthusiam to coach special teams.

    He has ties to Florida so hopefully that will help us as far as recruiting too. I like the hire.

    Apps lose by 16, 74-58. Big time foul trouble as Anna Freeman fouled out. ASU was 5-6 from the line and UVA was 17-21.

    Harsh words from Darcie, but congratulations on the post-season run. Next year kick ass and bring home some titles!

    Reduced the early game margin of loss by exactly half. Still, 16 points is pretty much a blow out.

    Going straight to name calling instead of making a good point, nice job.

    I am not saying he can't coach, I am saying there is a difference in coaching at the college level and HS level, and what a college coach deals with is quite a bit different than that of a gut who is coaching PT and teaching the other. I hope he succeeds, obviously, but for a team trying to remain a national power, and potentially go FBS, I would expect us to be able to attract proven talent at the college level. ASU is a step up from most FCS teams and definitely division II and III, are there no shining stars there that are proven we can attract? Look where coaches go from our program – higher profile jobs at other levels, or even FBS. I don’t think HS to ASU is the logical next step for our coaching candidates; I personally think we are more attractive than that!

    So to your point, is that why a lot of great HS coaches go straight to a major FBS level program or the NFL; no they have to prove themselves and I just think a guy should have some decent college experience before being hired at a program like APP.

    Gus Malzahan – straight to Auburn from HS.

    As far as that mock draft, the guy picked RGIII to go first, that is all I needed to read. Now he did have Luck next, and most people could be wrong about Luck, but I think the guy is just putting some crazy crap in print so he could say he was the first to predict it.

    Not saying that it doesn't happen, it just is very rare, and for a reason.

    And with Gus, since you brought that up, it did not go so smooth in the beginning. He went from HS coach to offernsive coord at Arkansas, had major issues with Houston Nutt, then ended up at Tulsa in the same postion – not exactly a smooth ride; although he appeared to have proven results in the running game on the field. It was well documented that there was tention early with the hire due to, and I quote "the fact that Malzahn had never coached in college, many questioned what Houston Nutt's motives were".

    Just saying, it is rare, and probably for good reason. Hopefully it will work out at APP.

    Vincent loses four seniors. It would be good if she could bring in some taller players; 6' 1" and shorter makes it tough against teams from the big-time conferences.
