too true. I don't even think we let Baylor do that. WVU is a scary good team though, and Dunning is strong and smooth. Cary really timed his rotation well. I also wonder if the scout in the second half might have been the challenge with them starting bench players versus their regular starters....I think Cary gets points for his adjustment and strategy in this game.
I thought the same thing, great coaching move by Cary, even though I detested it. Even in the first half, when he went to bully-ball, he subbed out key starters and put bench players in. Whether he intended it or not -- he may have just wanted to protect starters from fouls-- we did not have as a good a scout on those players. They were athletic and just played all over the place. Combine that with going hard, being physical, tiring us out, Cary realized he had a formula that could work against us. It was surprising to see the key starters still on the bench at the start of the second half. But kind of brilliant. He kept taking it to us, and then put the key starters back in to finish the game. Dunning would have fouled out much earlier had he played her like a starter.
Did something happen during the handshakes after the game? A few people around me said something happened between the WV head coach and our coaches. I didn't see it but I did see Carey's assistant pushing him to the lockeroom. Just curious.
