Big game from Croskey as HU loses to JMU who is undefeated in the CAA. Aside from game stats what is noteworthy here is that the attendance for this game was listed as 2,000. That's more then our men average and maybe as much as JMU's men??

The attendance was that high because the game was at JMU. We got 448 when we hosted them on December 29. Our Women are second-to-last in the CAA in attendance at 528 ahead of only 344 for College of Charleston, who is 5-15. College of Charleston's Men average 10.79 times their Women. JMU's Men average 2,661, which is 19.2% more than their women.

Talking about attendance there were 4,737 fans in the stands at Delaware last night. A team that's not one of the stellar teams in this league!

Any update on Alena Leon’s injury? It’s never good when a player has to be taken off the court in a stretcher.

Played 20 minutes in this game. W& M game that is.

Struggling mightily against UNCW, a team that's currently 0-10 in CAA play. Blew a 14 point lead, now down 3 points and haven't scored a in a long time. This would be by far the worst loss if the season if they don't figure something out. The most frustrating part is that UNCW isn't doing anything particularly good, Hofstra just looks really bad. The announcers keep pointing out that most of the turnovers (16 so far) are unforced, thanks to sloppy play. And shot selection is not great.

Update: Hofstra lost 59-55, falling to 4-7 in conference play. Can't have 19 turnovers and go 3-10 from the free throw line and expect to win. HU shot 44%, while UNCW shot 33% for the game, UNCW didn't make a field goal over the last 8 minutes of the game, and still outscored HU 18-9 in the 4th quarter. Super disappointing season after hearing how much better this team would be compared to last year.
Bizarre game, 4 technical fouls called, 2 on each team. I don't ever remember watching a women's game where even 1 was called.

What's the general consensus around coach K from those who really know?

I don't follow the women's side enough to have an educated opinion...

Now 4-9 in CAA play, after another dismal weekend of play. Lost to perennial bottom-feeder Towson on Friday, and got blown out by Delaware today. Our last 3 losses have come at the hands of teams under new head coaches. Injuries keep stacking up as well, just to add to the nightmare season. Ashunae Durant hasn't played the past several weeks, and Boogie Brozoski went down today.
