Are they going to say something to Klinker about these elbows she's throwing around? She's gonna take someone's head off...

Hell of a job by Klinker, if Schofield and the two other clowns aren't going to call anything on you then elbow away.

You can't beat a team that makes the slop shots.

Our freshmen need to live in the weight room and get stronger. What disappointing half. Doesn't take away from a great season. Get better.

Idaho shooting close to 60% this half. That’s tough to beat any day.

Seems like I've seen this story before, we have a 6 point lead at halftime, the other team comes out and gets some calls their way and figures out they can rough us up and get away with it and next thing we know we have an insurmountable double digit deficit.

Then the griz announcer goes off about how we can’t have that kind of play in the game referring to Skye. My god.

Looked like Skye was in there for one reason.

I actually enjoyed the officiating. Let the ladies play and flow of game was nice. Idaho was just tougher. Props to them. Our future is bright I think.

Idaho was definitely better in the 2nd half. They just had so much more energy on defense, and their bigs were so much more physical. They got some calls to go their way for sure, and that compounded things.

It's a shame they couldn't play a few weeks ago. I think Klinker and Bea can be planned for, it just seemed like the Cats didn't have the solution for them yet. And yeah, they definitely got some lucky breaks too. It was a lot of factors that made that ugly.

What a season for this young team. If you'd have told me this group would've been a top 3 team and lose a heartbreaker in the semis at the conference tournament, I would've been happy with that. These girls will get better--they'll be in the weight room, they'll be shooting. This group is so loaded with more talent coming. Tough night but great season.

Tough result tonight, but a damn fine season from a great group of young ladies and an excellent coaching staff. So proud of our Lady Bobcats!

Super frustrated by the outcome tonight but also incredibly proud that the 4th youngest team in the country could accomplish what they did this year! Thanks to Tori and Sidney for many great memories!

Can you imagine if the refs let Belo play like that?

I don't mind it usually. I liked playing physical and like watching it. But it's interesting when you know one way of calling a game is going to give one team such a distinct advantage. At some point you'd think they'd look at it and see it's playing into one team's strengths and the other team just can't do anything about it. I don't know, maybe that's just sour grapes from me. I thought it changed the whole vibe of the game and the Cats were out of it once that happened.

I kind of feel like we watched a basketball game in the first half.....then a football game broke out in the second half. Our team is a great basketball team....not so good at football. I’m just glad Klinker didn’t take somebody’s head off throwing all those elbows. Nice season Bobcats....you have a lot to be proud of and the future is bright!

Ultimately it didn't affect the result of the game. When Idaho is knocking our players down with no calls and then flopping on the other end to draw offensive fouls, it's pretty tough to take at the time. As others have said, time to hit the weight room this off-season!

Don’t mind physical game, but the refs let Klinker get away with murder all game. We didn’t have an answer...hurt not playing them during regular season. Idaho had an advantage in post play.

Get a legit off-season to add strength and polish to their game add in Klein from Forsyth....watch out Big Sky.

Tremendous heart and hustle shown by this team. Very proud of this those young ladies and the program.

This is the fundamental rule of officiating: preventing one player from gaining an unfair advantage over another under the rules. Swinging elbows and leveling players on screens are more than just being physical. They are dangerous and give the offender an unfair advantage. If a team has more physicality, they should be able to exploit it without having to resort to knocking the opponent around like a punching bag. Kudos to Idaho for knowing exactly how much they could get away with.
