    The run that the jackrabbits put together in the first quarter came with Lexi on the bench. They were not able to get Madison any touches on the offense. Madison moved to the point and the run occurred. Madison did not score that much, but she was part of the offense. She also did a good job of pushing the ball later in the game and made a few layups. Lexi played slower at the point burning clock late in the game too. The defense by Colorado was very intense and the Jackrabbits burned the shot clock often throughout. The Buffs were the aggressive team.

    I think we might be a little spoiled with the success this program has shown through out the years.A lot of programs would die to have 20+ wins every year, and have a very good chance to play in the NCAA Tournament every year too.This success however causes the fan base to elevate their expectations,only human nature.The trick is to keep those expectations firmly in the realm of reality.I think this program will one day find themselves earning a sweet 16 game,especially with how tantalizingly close we've come twice now.This program has been on the brink of accomplishing that for awhile now,only to have the carrot yanked away at the last second(pun intended).This fuels an even greater desire to get back and finally overcome that last hurdle.We'll get there eventually.This might generate some pressure for players to meet our expectations,but I would hope they have the same expectations themselves.I'm sure they do.This was a good year for our Jacks I believe,with all they've dealt with.It's sad to have to say goodbye to our seniors,but at the same time there's excitement in bringing in new recruits and jumping into a brand new season ahead.Thanks seniors to leading the way to another good year,that we've come to expect from our Jacks.

    2 redshirts with injuries, 2 transfers sitting out, 2 on the bench that never saw the floor and 2 that rarely played. That's 8 players that were not able to contribute much - putting a ton of pressure on the 7 that carried the load. I can't complain about what they accomplished, given the circumstances.

    Returning to a scoring threat at PG will help everyone out in a big way - no more sagging back towards the lane for the PG defender. Adding five new players with the potential to be big scorers will be exciting. Often this year we had three players on the floor together that should not be shooting any farther out than 5'. That makes it pretty easy for the defense to clog things up in the paint and get transition baskets off of long bricks and airballs. It's going to be fun to see what next year's team can do.

    THIS! We have probably had more "misses" on recruits in the past few years than we previously had, especially in the front court. Losing Wade to transfer definitely hurt our depth at the 4/5. I'm pretty surprised that Graettinger couldn't find her way on the court this year. I had heard such good things about her freshman year performance post-concussion.

    What are the chances that some of the injuries result in medical redshirts? Miller, Mieras, etc?

    It's been reported they are applying for one for Macy. Not sure about Mieras. Has she already used one? Seems she's been hurt a lot.

    Mieras hadn't taken a redshirt prior to this year so she can/will take this year as a redshirt.

    Since miller played, she has to go for a medical redshirt, but Mieras didn't play all year so can just count as a redshirt year.

    Mieras had a medical issue which could come into play if she ever had another similar injury which would give consideration for 6 years to play 4. There is exemptions for a second redshirt with 2 injury related redshirts such as Gabby Boever.
