4.jpg Good news! Helen Darling has a splitting headache. Oh, I guess she was just smoothing out her hair.

17.jpg Great screen by LJ!

18.jpg Agler was doing most of the face to face coaching due to Hughes' busted leg.

Click to see 25.jpg

32.jpg LJ triple team that is clearly a foul.

34.jpg As is Sue's role this season, she passes the ball as soon as she penetrates the paint...
Click to see 35.jpg
35.jpg ...unfortunately Izzy didn't get the memo about Sue's new role.

43.jpg SASS definitely weren't afraid of double and triple teaming our posts.

48.jpg Becky doesn't quite have the handle on the ball...
Click to see 49.jpg
49.jpg ...but that doesn't stop her from taking a shot.
Click to see 50.jpg
50.jpg Some good defense. Keeping the guards under the basket works sometimes. Another even better example of that later.

55.jpg Very nearly a foul on LJ...
Click to see 56.jpg
56.jpg ...turns into an offensive foul on Becky.

58.jpg I do not get what Riley was doing here. It looks like she has LJ beat but she picks up her dribble...
Click to see 59.jpg
59.jpg ...now all she can do is pivot around trying to get around LJ. Good luck!
Click to see 60.jpg
60.jpg That puts her right into LJ's defense...
Click to see 61.jpg
61.jpg ...why didn't she just pass the ball?

Click to see 63.jpg
63.jpg LJ and Sue have Becky trapped...
Click to see 64.jpg
64.jpg ...Becky passes the ball but LJ did a slight push here...
Click to see 65.jpg
65.jpg ...several days later, the refs call it...
Click to see 66.jpg
66.jpg ...and LJ is understandably confused.
Click to see 67.jpg
67.jpg OK, here's the monster block of my side of the court...
Click to see 68.jpg
68.jpg ...wait for it...
Click to see 69.jpg
69.jpg ...boom! Note LJ isn't just smacking the ball. She's also scooping the ball so it will stay in bounds.

72.jpg Becky driving pass the point where she's going to shoot...
Click to see 73.jpg
73.jpg ...to create room for a fadeway.
Click to see 74.jpg
74.jpg Here's another interesting drive. Ferdnand is driving baseline. Note that Izzy is screened...
Click to see 75.jpg
75.jpg ...but then totally stops looking for the basket...
Click to see 76.jpg
76.jpg ...she stays low to stay out of LJ's reach and keep her off balance...
Click to see 77.jpg
77.jpg ...Izzy has gotten around the screen but is still a ways away...
Click to see 78.jpg
78.jpg ...that leaves Ferdnand with plenty of space under the basket...
Click to see 79.jpg
79.jpg ...well, it didn't work, but the whole drive was a good idea.
Click to see 80.jpg
80.jpg The Storm return SASS's defense.

Click to see 82.jpg
82.jpg Oh no, we only have Sue in the paint against Riley. It's hopeless, right?
Click to see 83.jpg
83.jpg Nope. Riley was so busy looking up, she didn't see Sue knock the ball away.

Click to see 85.jpg
85.jpg I'm sure Hughes planned on sitting the whole game, but in the end it got so intense that he literally crawled onto the court to see what was going on!
Click to see 86.jpg
86.jpg Here's a crummy call on Sue, I think...
Click to see 87.jpg
87.jpg ...I don't think Sue got anything but ball and ball-finger here...
Click to see 88.jpg
88.jpg
Click to see 89.jpg
89.jpg ...but she's called for a foul.
Click to see 90.jpg
90.jpg Near the end of the game. Ferdnand gets the rebound, but...
Click to see 91.jpg
91.jpg ...she travels trying to get away from everyone. Sue called it.
Click to see 92.jpg
92.jpg ...sadly this lob inbound to LJ went goofy.
