    The season starts tonight for vicki hall and the ISU women's team

    They play Kansas at 8pm on ESPN+

    Hopefully our women do well, they were picked 9th in the MVC preseason poll

    As an eternal optimist, I like our chances...in that, Kansas was 13-18 last year, 12-18 the year prior, and 8-22 before that.

    So it's not like we're playing a juggernaut. And coach Hall has recruited a lot of talent. Tonight we find out about our chemistry.

    near the end of the 1st half ISU is only down 3 to Kansas, so they're playing well

    at the half Kansas leads by 7, ISU is shooting 54% from the field, 44% from 3, and 60% from the FT line, this is significantly better than last years team

    I'd tune in if you have ESPN+, this team appears to be far better than any team we've seen at ISU recently, might be a good year, good ball movement and good passing,

    They’ve got some girls that can play. I hope they can gel as a team. If they can, could be a good season!

    despite the loss this team showed some serious fight tonight and should have a good season, it will be interesting to see how they progress.

    We need a sport to cheer for after a dreadful Fall season.

    Final was Kansas 84 ISU 72, it was much closer than that though, ISU did lead in the 2nd half.

    It sure seemed like a lot of ticky-tack foul calls the whole game. The announcers kept speaking about emphasis on the slightest touch being a foul call this season; calling that tight sure stops the flow of the game.

    I watched the game last night and while I don't have a lot to compare our performance to since I haven't watched our women's team in past seasons, I can say without a doubt that we looked pretty good. This team has a lot of speed, quickness, and toughness. I look forward to seeing how we play vs other mid-majors, inside and outside of The Valley.
