    Very important game for the women's team for a number of reasons. Hopefully a nice crowd will build for this one as the lead-in to the men's game.

    Should be an interesting matchup - I think the talent level is pretty similar; FSU has way more size but remarkably even less depth than us (they come in with only 7 healthy/eligible scholarship players + 1 team manager turned walk-on).

    FSU leading 34-29 at the half.

    Really ugly half for both teams. FSU's quality zone vs our very pedestrian one is probably the biggest difference so far.

    Officials were rather quiet until the last 5 minutes, good for both short-handed teams. Bonds 8-8 from the line keeping us in it.

    Post play for Florida is simply bad.

    Not to mention very careless passing by the guards.

    easy layup missed by Bonds. Foul by Florida.. FSU is going to win this. Sloppy effort from the Gators.

    FSU really controlled the 2nd half, but we had some chances to really make it a game in the last 2 minutes after 2 of FSU's 3 guards fouled out, just couldn't make any 3s (or FTs for that matter) in crunch time.

    Overall just not a great showing - too many turnovers and bad shot selection on offense and our zone defense is just really bad (we seem to defend okay in man, but it's hard when your front line is outsized by 3-6 inches).

    Next up: another home game against probable NCAA team St. John's. It's still early in the season, but calling it a must-win may not be an overstatement.

    If we had some bigs we could be dangerous..just dont have enough size inside this year. Next year we should be much more equipped to take on the more elite teams.

    Florida hasn't had much size in a long time. That is on Butler. She has relied on a local recruit that has been injured for 3 years. And the big transfer from OK State lasted just 3/4 of a season.

    I hope Foley doesn't make the mistake of yet 1 more season if this one ends up in the WhoCares tournament.

    I can't believe there will be a next year for Butler. For how many years have we had somebody said, next year we will have this and then transfer and injuries and the team looks nothing like that and everything stays the same.
