    About ready to tip - Gators down to 7 players without Mercer today, not sure what happened to her?

    Mercer is suspended apparently :(

    Terrible start so far - LSU up 16-6.

    Shaping up early as a blowout.

    40-25 LSU at half.

    Bonds, Miller and Williams combine for 1 point, 1 rebound, 0 assists, 6 turnovers and 7 fouls (3 each for Williams/Miller). Lewis, Peoples and Needles are playing okay, but don't think we have much of a chance at a comeback here.

    Nice Gator run to get within 7, but Williams fouls out and LSU now extending it again. 73-59 LSU with less than 5 to go.

    82-68 LSU final. *Much* better 2nd half, but too much to overcome with the short bench, huge mismatch inside and miserable start in this one.

    Good at least to see Needles knock some shots down and Lewis also played very well, finishing with 15 pts 17 reb.

    Yeah, I watched some of the game and the Gators could have gotten blown out but managed to keep it within reach for most of the game. While one shouldn't settle for moral victories, I thought the team did reasonably well with a short bench. Wish R William's hadn't fouled out as she was the only interior presence the Gators seemed to have and Bonds definitely had an off game (2 for 11) though she worked hard to get what she got.

    Knew this one would be tough. I had to work and couldn't watch but LSU has a ton of size. Mercer being out is troublesome, but this isn't a bad loss as it was expected. We just need to bounce back well at home against UGA who is a far better matchup for us.

    Nice to see Peoples regain her shooting touch. Also too bad that everyone else lost theirs. LSU had too much size and strength and their inside game was very good. Missing Mercer had to hurt as well.

    With only 7 players, the game ended with Williams fouled out and 3 other girls with 4 fouls each. Once again
    we were close to playing with less than 5 on the floor. Whatever it is with Mercer, I hope it is just this game she
    is missing.

    Hope she is not the sign of a bunch of summer transfers. This team cannot play with just 7 players (really just 6 and 1/2 with Williams fouling out after 15 minutes every game). :(

    Size was the difference in this game, I think our guards are about the best in the league.
