Game Notes

As expected, ND won the rebounding battle, but I was surprised at how tough the L'ville interior defense was. Of course they foul consistently and were called for quite a few of them. They really gave Jackie Young a tough time when she went to the hoop and it resulted in her worst shooting night that I can recall. They also swarmed Jess Shepard and caused her turnover problems while limiting her shots to four. Speaking of shooting, Asia Durr has a sweet old-fashioned jump shot.

Mik Vaughn with eight rebounds in nine minutes was great to see, along with her five points.

Arike had a star performance in the second half and also led ND with six assists.

Abby looked good in her two minutes. I'd like to see her with more time.

Matt McGraw was really into this game which indicates how much this game meant to his wife.

The Reynolds family was in attendance as a follow-up to Dillon uncovering
the ESPNW article on Mila Reynolds.

I survived two Cardinal fans sitting behind me who commented on every one of their made baskets with gleeful "yep!" They were pretty quiet during the final minute, although they thought that the lay-up ND conceded was some sort of great drive to the hoop.
