Well this season finish WAY different than it looked like it was going to. The issues started when Jaelyn Gadson went down at the end of the 9-0-0 start. She reeked havoc on the edge and stretched the defense out leaving more space in the middle for Folds and Daly. AU just never found a consistent scorer up front and that was really their biggest undoing. This was a young team that had success early but when it started falling, it fell hard. Making the tournaments (SEC and NCAA) were crucial though for this young team so in all not a terrible season, but you expect that AU would have at least gotten to the second round. I didn't see yesterday's game so I can't comment on that, but it's good that they finished well enough to host. I suspect the cold, damp day favored Minnesota and that, coupled with AU's shallow bench had the greatest effect on the outcome.
