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

Most likely. It looked bad when she rolled it, as two people had to help her off, and she didn't play the rest of the 1st half. Started the 2nd, but only lasted about a minute. Hopefully, not serious and she can be ready for Ball St.

RE: WBB @ Buffalo Game Thread
So, a little over half-way through the MAC season, and the Rockets are 6-4 and have the 4th best record in the league. Remember when we were all talking about the teams inability to shoot back in November, well so far in the MAC games, UT is:
2nd in FG%
1st in 3FG% - yes 1st!
T2nd in FT%

So, shooting has not been a problem at all. The biggest issue has been defense. UT is
9th in FG% D
11th in 3FG% D
10th in Turnovers Forced.

And yes, also committing too many turnovers, but the D is the bigger issue, but then again D is harder to learn for freshmen typically, so maybe not so unexpected.

In MAC games she is averaging 12.4 points per game, 5.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists. She's shooting 53% overall and an incredible 63% from three.

Interesting stats for a team that is typically known for its defense. I don't think you can blame it on youth, though. We start three seniors and a junior. Our freshman starter, Lockett, is a pretty good defender.

Santucci had a half court three that was about a tenth of a second late against Kent.

I hate to nitpick, but I don't think it's correct that she's 2-2 this year on half-court (or longer) shots. I remember her missing one at the buzzer of regulation in the Bowling Green game. BG missed on a shot to go ahead. Wiard rebounded, dribbled to half court, and launched a shot that was off the mark.
