The Bison open tonight at nationally ranked Ohio State. BU is very young - having graduated four starters - and small. Average height is exactly 5-10, and no one is taller than 6-1.

Women's Basketball opens campaign at #17 Ohio State

This will be a work in progress, with three good freshman learning the D1 game.

The women are holding there own against a very talented team. Got off to a shaky start, down 20-7, then used a 15-0 run to take a brief 22-20 lead. Down 28-24 at the half. OSU has shot terribly. BU turning the ball over way too much.

Minimizing turnovers has been a plus for the Trevor Woodruff teams. Previously that was the one consistent weakness of most of Roussell's teams. Hopefully tonight's problems are a one-time thing, due to the size/quality of the opponent plus the inexperience of the Bison.

Didn’t see the game, but I note that nine of our eleven players got double digit minutes. Hopefully lots learned tonight by the coach and his young team.

lengthy podcast from Joe Vasile, the PBP man for the Bison women:

Has an interesting 18-minute interview with Trevor Woodruff, plus an analysis of each PL contender.

Congrats to the women for a hard fought victory over Iona tonight. I think Collins, who led the team in scoring, is going to be a good one.

Yes, fought through a rough first half and played much better at both ends in the second half. The refs were very whistle-happy in the the first half, which made for a sloppy game. They let them play in the second.

Those “happy whistles” led to a huge foul shot advantage for the Bison. It is hard to believe that a visiting team would amass more than 20 more free throws, and outstretched them by 20 at the line. True six of those points came down the stretch when Iona had to foul, but still free throws won it.

It was the 6 travelling calls and 2 or 3 charges, many of which seemed questionable.

Also have to say the Iona announcers were great, especially the color commentator, who's name escapes me. She is the former Seton Hall coach and clearly had scouted Bucknell like any good coach would. Such a refreshing change from the Ill St announcers the other night who seemed to know virtually nothing and care even less about Bucknell's players.

What a horrible 1st half vs. a weak N Dakota team. Must have been at least 10 missed layups. Shooting 24% overall and 1-8 from 3. If O'Brien doesn't stay out of foul trouble, we're sunk.

O'brien stayed out of trouble and was her usual athletic self with a key defensive play at the close. Krsul had a nice game, too. They do what it takes to win! Thanks for a good game ladies!!!!

Much better 2nd half as they started making a few layups. O'Brien took over for much of the half and almost single handedly got them back in it. I just wish they weren't playing from behind in every game. It's got to be wearing on Coach Woodruff's nerves.

They hang in there and close games out. I like that in a young team.

Yes, a young team that is learning what it takes to win. This will pay dividends when the league schedule starts, and the Bison will be better than expected and peak to the PLT. Just sayin'

A really entertaining game, while at the same time frustrating as the Bison missed a ton of shots. Despite that they never let ND take control even though we trailed virtually the entire game. O’ brien had 3 fouls at the half, did not get another. And took over the game. The Bison found a way to win. By will be a good test.

Love spell check and it’s ability to make up words for you. That last post was meant to say VT should be a good test. One more thing, Taylor OB can really jump.

It’s easy to get carried away and make too much of a single win or loss, but major kudos to the women for a solid win over a Vermont team that demolished Brown the day before. Quite a game by O’Brien.

Taylor broke the Bucknell outdoor High Jump record 5'7 1/4 " in 2019.. she would have a great shot at the indoor record, problem, meets are held during the basketball season. I understand she is a very good hurdler, an athlete to say the least.

O'Brien was named tournament MVP after scoring 46 pts in the two games. Also had 12 rebounds. Collins was also named to the all-tournament team. It has not taken her long to adjust to the college game.
