    Strange Head in Yahoo Sports

    UConn Huskies still atop AP women's basketball poll; NC State Wolfpack back at No. 2 Seems like they're surprised? bemused? Really off the reservation Like we haven't earned it...or not tossed it like other teams?

    Gentlemen I am a long time sports customer of ESPN and have been a fan and participant of various sports for 70+ years. I am writing to you about the (mod) approach you employ in Basketball coverage. I actively follow woman's BB, especially the UConn woman. Today's Tennessee / Texas A&M game...

    I'm getting that well-known Itch

    So we play Butler...another scrimmage-like affair and then hustle over to Knoxville. In the meantime Tennessee through trial and error, reasonable coaching and playing mucho games against reasonable opponents...is improving, learning how to win...to utilize their talent, entered the top-25 and...

    Where is Moriah ?

    She missed a bunch of recent games with a reported hamstring. She was mugged and clearly hurt early in the season. Now, she's not even listed on the box score Has anyone seen her? I don't have the WNBA package.

    Keep an eye out for Gabby Williams

    She's still beneath the radar. Not for long. Last night...6 for 10...4 for 5 from 3! What's this? Weren't there whole seasons she didn't attempt 5 three-pointers? I noted it from Europe, she's becoming a scorer, along with the other positive aspects of her game, add scoring and you have...

    So Harvard....

    has just announced that only 40% of its students will be on campus this fall, mostly Freshman.... Of course, its just one school....but how that translates into woman's BB is a question I have trouble answering.

    Is the Squeak's issue like Breanna’s?

    Does anyone see a parallel between Squeak's continued underperformance and Breanna's mid-frosh crisis in the midst of her freshman year. In both cases (most notably this season), he continued to play them, though consistently stayed on their case. I'm just wondering if puppet-master Geno has a...

    A successful Weekend for Carla takes her over 400 wins

    With decisive wins over Cornell and Columbia, Carla Berube notched her 400th and 401st victories as a coach (14th season of coaching). Her Team surprised her with a mini celebration (ESPN+ replay) top of broadcast. I was curious where Geno was in his win total (at the end of his) 14th...

    If S. Carolina plays like they did against UTenn...

    We should win the game. Boring offense...round and round the horn Their celebrated big didn't do much...and she may be injured. Outside shooting up and down. The pass up a lot of shots that UConn would take, both in the lane and outside. Not impressive.

    Carla's Tiger's win weekend doubleheader

    While most of us are focusing on Oregon or Super-duper; I've enjoyed following Carla's Tigers on the road at Dartmouth (Friday) or Harvard (today). Since its not far from my St J. Winter abode, I buzzed down I-91 to Hanover to take in the game. After a slowish start the Tigers ran away with...

    NFL Football

    1. Both supreme vintage quarterbacks lost. 2. Amazing how the game has changed...reverted to a more 50-60's style of tackling; and how good the corners and backers are at executing it. Almost none of the head-leading suicide shots that shorten lives and the possibility of a normal...

    Friday Entertainment

    Tonight was a quite fascinating view into the 2nd tier of woman's college basketball which I found it quite worthwhile. i jumped back and forth between two games (and Rachel at 9) and was rewarded by a sense of confidence in the overall state of the game. Princeton was somewhat better than the...

    OT: DS and the Globe Nail it

    I recall some really negative reactions to the writing of Dan Shaughnessy Especially when he opines about woman's BB. But he sure nailed it today... with his comments regarding the latest (in a long line) of Patriot's capers.

    Two matters from our Orange friends

    1.There is a thread labeled Crystal Dangerfield (strange) in which the poster derided our point for leaving the state and ridiculed her for not winning any National Championships. It was met by complete and total derision of the poster by the board. Impressive, neh? 2. To my uncultivated...

    Looking Ahead

    If the team prevails today and in the finals There is a good chance that they will be much improved With the underclassmen having been forced to step up. It's amazing that Geno has to remind CW to do her thing... But there it is. Perhaps she's finally learned. MSF Steamboat Springs

    Eric Frede said halfway through the 4th quarter

    that Uconn had a lot to be happy about with regard this game (paraphrase). I disagree Walker was 0 for 4 Williams wasn't looking to shoot...even that last drive seemed half-hearted The team had god-awful lulls.....in the 2nd quarter and to start both the third and the fourth Against a real...

    Two Questions

    1. At the beginning of the 4th quarter it looks like Crystal goes over to take the ball out to start play and then the ball is given to ND. Was this a turnover of some kind or just a mistake of who gets possesion? 2. Does Jackie Young look right? She had a bandage on a knee and does not appear...

    is getting weird We have a game last night and no discussion of it until a thread on CW is hijacked and some soul asks what the score was. I must admit that for the 1st time in a decade, I haven't closely followed the early games... Have an excuse: was in Europe, and sailing home...no internet...
