Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

Connecticut play, in effect a home game tonight, while Tennessee (another one seed) play in West Lafayette, on an opponent's home court.

Coach Summitt, however, isn't complaining. "When we struggle is when people are not in the gym," she says. "Whether they're yelling for us or against us, I think having a great environment is best for us. We have been a part of six road sellouts [this year]. We've been in some hostile environments, which I think have prepared us...That's great for women's basketball."

Meanwhile, controversy continues as to whether Oral Roberts fans should blame a major injury to an ORU player on a Tennessee cheerleader's sign.
