I went to the game last night and was really impressed by the effort. They played very well in all phases of the game. This team has had a breakout season with only 1 senior, 4 juniors, 3 sophs and 3 freshmen starting. D’Orazio may have sophomore eligibility is she wants it.
Two things I noticed. Height can have a major impact on draw control. We could use a 6 footer and this game is going to be very different next year with a shot clock.
Expect both M and W games will be faster paced next yr. Wlax much more so. No more 6-7 holds by either team. A 6 footer at FOGO would create a definite advantage in the standing draw. I was struck by our speed vs Gate. Loyola will be a very tough match up for us.
Loyola women have not lost a PL game since entering the league. However, Lehigh took them into overtime this season with a late rally.
Loyola will not take Lehigh lightly. Lehigh should not be in awe of Loyola.
