    Really impressed by how we have competed in the 2nd half after falling behind. Up 1 at the final media TO - in with a chance, about as much as you can ask for against a top 10 team.

    Up 6 with under a minute......big win for you guys. I hope Mitchell gets their attention after this wow! I thought we would be a great team, but I guess that is wrong.

    Unbelieveable. Really thought this game was over and might well turn into a blowout after Kentucky went up 9.

    Incredibly impressed and happy for the team and staff. On the road over #6 - this is probably one of the top 5 wins in school history.

    These are the types of wins the team needs. This is the best win of Butler's entire tenure, now we have to keep the momentum going and avoid the drop-off in the next game.

    LOL. I guess I'm one that falls into that group. I will give her and the team credit for a great win. Now just follow it up with another good performance. The goal is still to make it to the big dance in March. This is definitely a good first step. But the key will be keeping the level of play at a high level, and not always playing to the level of your competition which seems to have been a pattern of late.

    Great Win! These are games that UF usually doesn't close out, so it is good to see improvement in that area esp away from home. Williams showed what she can do when she is able to stay on the court.

    Definitely a huge win, really happy for Amanda.

    Need to continue to play well though, really tough road ahead with our schedule.

    Not quite - I know we had 2 over TN & LSU in 2006(?) - the year when Carol Ross's last recruiting class were seniors. Offhand, I think it's the first in the Butler era though.

    Don't think we need to worry too much about a letdown with 3 of the next 4 against ranked teams and 14-1 Arkansas not exactly a slouch. Also not sure we can count on this level of play consistently, but it's pretty exciting to see that the team has it in them.

    The key part of the season is how we play after that stretch against Auburn and Alabama. Have to at least pull out 1 win in these next 4 games, but those 2 games against the Alabama teams will pretty much define the season.

    One win in 4 games and Bama and Auburn as the defining games... I am guessing you are definitely not an optimist.

    How they respond to winning may be as important as anything... do they use it to fire even better play? Or let it go to their heads.
