A win aganinst Duke or atleast a very strong showing may get the women some AP Top 25 votes, even a loss verse Duke will help their RPI especially because it's on the road.

 

Do you think the voters will really pay attention to a close loss, or do you think when it comes to deciding who will get their 24th or 25th vote that most of them just look at records?

Purdue is ranked #23 and Duke beat them by over 20. A strong showing would do a lot. Look at what it did for the Vermont men's team.

 

That said, we probably shouldn't overlook the Q. They are a better team than their record.

I think a close loss will draw alot of attention to our Women and those doubters out there will have their eyes opened.

 

Just my opinion.

I guess that I am slightly skeptical that any of today's sports reporters are going to dedicate that much attention to women's basketball to fill out spots 1-25 with due diligence. Still, my doubts have been proven wrong countless times before.

 

Easy solution is to beat Duke, but like DP said, do not overlook the Q...that is the arguably the best non-Duke opponent left.

Let's be realistic Haggy, this team should lose 1 more game this season until the NCAAs!

 

I'm hoping, but there is definitely some work to do. Imani Tate- G was the #45 recruit at her position, and UA brought in the #46 wing...with the coming of the new year, and conference play, I would like to see some positive development there.

 

BTW, I will assume you think the only other forthcoming loss is against Duke; I am still holding out hope!
