Halftime Thoughts: Tech-Lake Erie (Women)
February 29, 2012 - Michael Bleach
Barring some discussion of Plato's Theory of Forms, I can safely assume that the Lake Erie women got off the bus and are in fact playing in front of me.
But mentally that is up for debate.
The vaunted press that leads the conference in 21 turnovers forced per game is nowhere to be found. Tech leads 49-21 at intermission and the box score reads like a Houghton High girls game against some poor Class D schlub.
Three players for the Huskies have already reached double-digit scoring (Kate Glodowski, Krista Kasuboski, Taylor Stippel) and none of them are Sam Hoyt or Lindsey Lindstrom. Tech shot 66 percent for the half (16-of-24) and hit six of their eight three point attempts.
Kasuboski in particular has shined, knocking down all three field goal attempts and 3-for-5 free throws to go along with four rebounds.
On offense, the storm have been reduced to 14-foot fallaways at the end of the shot clock as they have been unable to successfully penetrate.
I have a bunch of "able to weather the Storm" puns dancing at my fingertips — nearly the entire U.P. is shut down due to blizzard concerns — but I don't want to step on the toes of my editor for his glorious headline tasks tonight.
