I watched the South Carolina vs LSU game last night. It reminded me of the story of the Tortoise and the Hare. LSU was hot in the first half and Angel Reese and KM exhibited their usual behavior. South Carolina closed to within 5 at halftime. South Carolina didn't panic, just kept doing their thing. On LSU's good plays, there was a lot of mugging for the crowd and camera and probably a lot of trash talk although you couldn't really see it on TV. But South Carolina was staying close and Angel Reese was piling up fouls. She fouled out with about 7 or 8 minutes left in the game. A poster on RebKell's Junkie board made this comment and I agree:
Maybe Kim is not the great coach people think she is? She made an awful mistake with her timeouts in the 4Q and was left with none in the crucial last minutes of the game. And Bayou Barbie fouling out? Wow. Those two things sealed the deal. Dawn's court management was so much better in the second half. It looked like the Tigers ran out of gas at the end of both halves.
