on 610 this morning.  Probably the most calls and emails in quite some time for the women's team.  Probably because the loss was to UNLV who had come into the game with only two wins.  I did send a quick email basically saying the Lobos have been out hustled and have had trouble with Rebs physical play.  I also gave my thought that a healthy UNLV team playing together can contend for the conference.  A Bradbury coached Lobo team has yet to win against them.  Also said UNLV had physical experienced guards going against UNM's  young back court, might have been a factor as Nikki had a heckuva game.  My thought is this Lobo team has the talent to win, but will they have the "toughness" against UNLV, Wyo, Boise and the physical teams in the league.  15 games to go and we will find out thru the course of the season.  Ferarra did have a comment-lessons learned.   How will the team react to the next physical opponent after the Nevada games??    Someone did bring up about the two freshmen guards starting and wondering if they are hitting that freshmen wall.   Think it might be a little early for that but the two are averaging about 30 minutes a game.  I kinda would like to see more of Brea and Quincy in spots.  Emily's experience against UNLV may have been beneficial with a little time.  Lots of hindsight.

Emily's not playing!  Why haven't people on this board gotten that through their heads?!  It's been 3 1/2 years.

Unlikely, if anything Bradbury's history is shortening the bench as the season progresses.

Yes - I believe we all see that! Why haven't certain people on this board learned to read more or less?!

Don't know that anyone is saying Bradbury was going to play them, just speculating on what might have helped; like when things are not going well try someone or something different.

Looked at a couple more things.  Coming into today's game, Mike is 1-3 against CSU.   We heard he had not won against UNLV.  He is also not won against Wyoming. 1-14 against what are usually the more physical teams.  Boise 2-3 in pretty much close games.    Need to get over that hurdle, whether physical or mental, to contend.

One of the predictable things is that you will come back on line after a loss.  There really are some fans who are just like that in every fan base.

Just a quick point of comparison to support your point:

UNM played 9 players.  CSU played 7.

UNM bench played 49+ minutes, CSU bench played 38+, and that was WITH two of their starters in foul trouble.

UNM bench scored 24 with 11 rebounds, CSU bench scored 8 with 3 rebounds.

The other thing that is very consistent with "play the bench more" cries is there is often little mention of who should play less.  Jaisa & Aisia were the two Lobos with over 30 min--the two most key players we had, both of whom played very well.
