    It’ll be a hard road but I got faith. Glad to hear everyone got to go and get experience. Go give ‘em ladies!

    I feel like the fact that UH is an at-large bid this season and had a below expectation season, they can play a lot looser and less pressure on themselves. I feel like previous seasons, expectations going into post season were a lot higher and there was more pressure for results when having marquee players like Nikki Taylor since it was seen as chances to go deep into the tournament. This year they can take a more go for broke mentality and just go for it.
