WBB vs Notre Dame Feb 29

The #5 Ladies travel to Notre Dame today to face the #17 Irish. The game will be on ESPN at 7 PM. The Hokies have locked up the ACC season championship and the #1 seed in the ACC tournament. Notre Dame is in a four-way tie for third with Louisville, NC State and Florida State, all at 11-5. Syracuse is currently second at 13-4. I don't want to try to figure out all the possibilities, but this game is important to Notre Dame.

The Irish have 6' 3" senior(Jr elegibility) Maddie Westbeld and 6' 4" senior(Jr elegibility) Kylee Watson; so they will have someone nearly as tall as Kitley on the floor most of the time. But the biggest threat is 5' 6" freshman Hannah Hidalgo. She has consistently won freshman of the week honors this year and is in the discussion for player of the year. In their last 3 games, they have only 7 players have played significant minutes and in their last game only used 6.

Notre Dame is 21-6, 11-5 in the ACC. All of their losses are to teams that are currently in the top 25 or receiving votes. They are currently on a 3 game winning streak with road wins at Duke and BC to go with a home win against Clemson. Their most recent loss was to NC State at home on Feb 15.

As mentioned above Hidalgo is a scoring machine. She is averaging nearly 24 points and 6 rebounds per game and she draws a lot of fouls. She shoots well from three and is great at driving to the hoop. I don't know if we have anyone who can stay with her. Coach Brooks may try to zone against them to try to slow down her drives.

In addition to Hidalgo, Westbeld and Citron score in double digits. All of the starters except Watson will step out and hit a three. Watson, 2.6 fouls per game, Hidalgo, 2.8 and Westbeld, 3.0, can all potentially have foul problems; and with the short bench, fouls could be a big factor. On our side, we may have foul trouble trying to stay with Hidalgo.



I think we are the better team; but this is going to be a tough game.

Gotta go. Busy day today.

LET'S GO HOKIES!

Plan for the worst and hope for the best, not the other way around.
