    Our new normal. Being treated like a mid major in NCAA seedings.

    They went 20-1 with a one goal loss at top 5 Maryland and beat plenty of ranked opponents with a top 4 RPI and there reward was NO HOSTING and going to Syracuse with a tough first round opponent in BC they just went to Double OT with.

    This is our new normal in all sports . Power totally to power conferences. And total lack of respect.

    Great to see UConn in another final four, and having to beat BC and Syracuse in the same weekend to do it isn't bad either. So in order to make the championship game, the Huskies will have to beat their third straight ACC team in North Carolina. The interesting thing is if UConn does make the final, there will be no ACC team to face them there.

    I believe that is our 14th final four in FH. Stevens is an unreal coach. Congrats ladies!

    The women of Storrs are really holding down the fort this season after a pretty abysmal showing by the male teams.

    It was nothing short of an outrage they weren't given the chance to host with a 20-1 record so to beat both BC and Syracuse is really sweet. And the fact that all 4 hosts failed to make it to the Final 4 suggests the committee royally screwed up.
