Some pictures from Tuesday's game, including one of the hero Meghan Gardler. She doesn't get a whole lot of time and isn't always dependable, but she came through big time against Rutgers. Kia Vaughn, Rutgers' one-time center, didn't know who Gardler was (does now) and threw her own teammates under the bus.

“She played well,” Vaughn said. “It had nothing to do with her height. She’s just strong and moving me around. It was just my teammates who had to actually come down and find me, so they didn’t find me and she had help from her other teammates.”

Vaughn was also asked about the WNBA and said she's still trying to figure out how the scoring is supposed to work on her team.

I haven't seen Gardler as much as you, but when I have I can't ever remember her not being dependable. Yeah, she's slow, not an offensive threat, etc, but she plays tough, gets rebounds and seldom screws up. Her play vs Rutgers was what I expected. I'd like to see her get at least five or six meaningful minutes each half. It would give the "studs" a needed blow.

Is it possible to move Maya to a guard slot for a few minutes each game? If Hayes and Montgomery are going to log 35 minutes plus a game, I can see the same thing happening in the tournament this year as last. I'm guessing Dixon is out of any rotation routine now.
