Correct - but that doesn't equate to a mental collapse

On our side and chaos same as it does / did during a game. We've played without her before. We did so last time without the two freshman as options to help compensate.

Reality is we can't beat UConn without her. Our odds were below 50% with her and are 1% without her - and that 1% is based on them having multiple injuries too (and the low odds that will happen).

What we can do however is beat everyone else without her. Close games, lower odds, but possible. The other side can plan for it, but we can also plan to counter it - and practice that plan.

It just drives me crazy that we lose our star forward nearly every year - and usually with seconds left in a half.
