    During the last play, the pg did not want to dribble right.

    Back to training for both teams, they have to go back to basics how to receive the ball and dribble, help the one holding the ball by making yourself open and receive the ball. Lets give credit to the girls also, probably their first time to be placed in a pressure filled game, its about learning from mistakes committed

    When you got four people checking you in the last seconds of the game and your team is spaced out under the gold three of her women were under the goal open but she couldn't get the ball to him because they have four people checking her that's sister got game big future ahead for her

    The point guard had four people got hurt in the last 6 seconds of the game 45 sec she have four people guarding her and she's still got the shot on but she didn't hit it

    Bad call for the coach and lack of experience . They should decoy mc Donald and find team mates to finish the games which is few of them are open...

    If she took a straight up shot versus a fadeaway she might have potentially had 3 free throws, but then again the officials didn’t even catch the out of bounds kickball by Stanford

    The last shot of the game was lost by someone that disregarded the fundamentals of the game. Instead of her wanting to be a star by hitting the game winning shot when three people was guarding her ,she should have passed it to one of the two people that was open and had a much better chance to hit the shot!

    Neither deserved to win that one. Mental breakdowns on both sides. Horrible clock management.

    Whenever both teams have the ball, they’re just standing around. Move around and create picks.

    Aari Mcdonald is a truly remarkable player, but that last play was awful! It was so selfish! She had at least 2 teammates open, I don't even know how to explain it more simply. If you're not open, don't shoot. Especially when you DIDN'T NEED A THREE. I was genuinely disappointed in that last play, there were so many options.

    Arizona last play was so stupid. They deserved the L, but Stanford last play was also dumb, they got lucky

    They need to teach these girls to run faster on a fast break and less dribbles.

    Arizona lost because they depended too much on Mcdonald and not on the entire team. Rewatching this is so sad and disappointing

    You could see the fear in her eyes before the inbound. That was not going to turn out right.

    This is a prime example of what happens when a coach worries about a “star player” and not the team.

    Adia made too many mistakes in this game not pressuring on the ball when jones had the ball not calling the time out after sf had a hit shot it seemed she rather not win this one...she didn't plan to win it all...they had excellent plan against Huskies no plan to attack Stanford
