    It's important to play ball-denial defense on Gustafson.

    In my opinion, MSU will have a good chance to finish second in the BIG this year, behind Maryland. The Spartans are very deep. With a slimmed-down and now more effective Allen and with a point guard Clouden who will contend for BIG freshman of the year, the Spartans are going to be tough to beat, especially when they get Colley going again as she comes back from her injury. (She didn't contribute much today in the win over Iowa.)

    I watch a deep team like MSU and then I watch the Gophers and there's no comparison in bench talent. The Gophers Iron Five is going to have to hold up all year and that's going to be difficult. Depth is something the Gophers are going to have to work on for next year's team. (It should be noted that UConn isn't very deep either this year, nor very tall, so it can be done. But the Gophers will have to remain healthy and hopefully they can get Hubbard on the floor again...soon.)

    We were out for lunch with several friends. The game was on one of the screens. I saw MSU down early, then tie it, then it was 19-19. My next glance and it was the Lions-Packers game? Obviously the restaurant didn't understand the difference between meaningful and meaningless games.
