    One thing you can say about the IUP gals is that they do seem to be very good people. They were probably horrified at what they saw and were indeed affected by it. I can't say that I blame them much for it.

    Cal’s Injured player was Abby Sporio. She’s a very lovely person and is an amazing defensive player. As I feared, she did not play today, and the team suffered. IMO, for this team to win, they need all their parts. With Barrett redshirting, the team is lacking and any player sitting out injured, noticeably affects their play. DJ Hahn is just returning to her form, and now who knows when Sporio will return? I just hope and pray she will be OK.

    Lol. Yeah ... around these parts it's frowned upon to ever mention anything negative about the football program or the women's basketball team.

    The theme I see in every Cal loss is that Tom's finesse style just doesn't work against the Vulcans. Coach Strom, to her credit, takes Megan Smith out of the game.

    Quite frankly, Tom's team just needs to get tougher. Cal is far more physical and aggressive. IUP plays very timid against California. That could be an intimidation thing. Who knows.
    The same team that won at Edinboro six days ago was not the team in the Angelo Dome last night.

    If they don't figure out a way to play tougher against them I can't see any of the upcoming (at least one more) meetings having any different outcome. When you take away the three-ball from Tom, they become a much different (worse) team. Cal has mastered it. Without the three spreading the floor, Appleby gets a little crazy and out of control (8 TOs last night).

    If last night was a once-off performance ... you chalk it up to the bad night ... shots not falling ... etc. But ... as ICH often says ... we've seen this movie before. Several times.

    There has to be a Plan B for when Megan can't carry the load. Appleby flying to the basket isn't going to work.

    It's only one loss. The rematch will be at the KCAC. But ... will anything be any different?
    I've actually been saying this for a number of years now---and not just with this current crop of IUP WBB players. It has been a problem. Z Tracey, Staci Heberling and Kylie Miller were the last bunch that was tough enough to stand up to the Lady Vulcans on a consistent basis. But seems like every time that I open my mouth about something wrong at IUP I become a university pariah. The 2014 QB situation quickly comes to mind.

    That should actually be reviewed by the home office how it was handled. The officials needed to stop the game and attend to her. No game is that important.

    I watch about the same amount of womens hoops as you, but the interesting thing was that the Cal run occured right after the major collision that left the Cal player wandering the court aimlessly until someone finally decided to take her out of the game. Almost seemed like IUP got rattled by that. You'd think it would be the other way around.

    Well, Siearra Barrett was out for Cal last evening. It didn't seem to matter much.

    The really sad thing about the loss is that IUP could have really grabbed an inside track towards homecourt to host the conference tourney and very possibly the regions come March.

    Factor in one of his wins was after Cal star Micki Glenn was lost for the season last year.

    * Lauren Wolosik was held to 3 points in 39 minutes

    * IUP committed a whopping 20 turnovers (Cal got 17 points off these TOs)

    * IUP was held to just 53 points -- 24 below its season average

    * Tom drops to 2-9 against California (women's last win in California was during the 2012-13 season)
    Wow! Former IUP coaches like Curt Cignetti and Jeff Dow got taken to the proverbial woodshed by IUP fans for their lack of success against the likes of Cal and Rock. But even those guys had a better record than that. That's not good.

    20-30 from the line isn't great either.
