I have uploaded quarter-by-quarter video of our conference semifinal game to YouTube. We are the #3 seed (in dark uniforms) taking on the #2 seed. They had beaten us by eleven and by four during the regular season. Offensively our game plan was to drive the ball to the basket. We didn’t think they could guard us on the dribble. We do have some good drives but we also botch some up when there wasn’t anywhere to go. We were being aggressive, though. Defensively we wanted to take away open looks from their best shooter. She had scored in double figures in the two prior games and had only missed one shot in each game, I think. We do a good job at the beginning of the game, especially. She gets some looks later on but ends up with only two made FTs. The first quarter was big. In both regular-season games we had fallen behind by significant margins early. This time we got ahead 7-0 and were up 11-6 after one. We won the second quarter 11-5 for a 22-11 margin at halftime. We lost a lot of our intensity in the third quarter and only stretched the lead to 30-18 after that period. The fourth quarter is a model of how not to play with a double-digit lead. We acted like we were down by twelve (which was the norm against this team) and let them cut into the lead. Normally I would have played our closing group a little more here but we were only going to have about a 15-hour turnaround before the finals the next day and I was trying to squeeze out some extra rest. I never really felt we were in danger and we finally got the ship righted and won by 10.
