Excessive number of turnovers again but defensive effort and shooting more than offset.

Still, making some 21 turnovers at this point in the season is problematic.

78-62 Final, as UT sweeps the Bulls.

Something about this matchup, which on-paper seems like it should favor the big front line of UB, but...

Black 21, 5 assists, 4 boards, 2 steals.
Santucci 13 points, 9 assists and 4 boards.
Wiard 8 points, 7 boards, 5 assists
Whitaker 8 points, 6 boards
Morgan-Elliott 7 points, 3 boards, a block and a steal - one of her best games on the season

Whatever happens the rest of the season, this Rockets team has exceeded my expectations. Great second half by Nakia Black. Our offense is at its best when Santucci and Wiard are on the floor together.

Rockets 56% from the field, 50% from 3, 71% from the line.
Also won the rebounding battle.

but ...

21 turnovers. Hard to imagine how you win by 16 with 21 turnovers, but it happened.

In both games Fair took a ridiculous number of shots to the detriment of everyone else. She helped us immensely. 12-43 combined shooting in two games. You won’t win often when your (by far) high volume shooter shoots 28%. I love her!

M-E hit a couple huge jumpers like she had ice water in her veins.

I agree. Fair throws up a ton of tough shots. She makes some really difficult ones, but more often she misses. 37% shooting on the year coming into today's game.

Buffalo's aggressive defense seems to leave us with a lot of open looks. While we had a lot of turnovers, we also got excellent shots when we didn't turn the ball over. High risk/high reward?

Santucci passed Andola Dortch today for 5th place on the all-time assists list.

RE: WBB @ Buffalo Game Thread
Wow that was fun! Rockets played well except for the ongoing turnover problem. Santucci did a great job on Fair who has looked vulnerable twice against the rockets. Sixteen point win on Buffalo's floor does expose their weaknesses. They are certainly nothing like the team which dominated MAC play the past couple of years. At 4-6 in the MAC they will have to turn it up to end up 500 but they do play Akron, BGSU and Miami in three or their next four games.

Had what was an apparent ankle sprain early. Not sure if that was the reason for not playing much.
