Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Saturday, February 14, 2009

Oh, the gnashing and grinding of teeth back when UConn (at full strength) struggled with Florida State. Well, who's gnashing gnow?

The 17th-ranked Seminoles held up their part of the Sunshine State resurgence. They jumped out to an early lead against the #7 Tar Heels and held on for the upset win, 77-70.

The victory is Coach Semrau's 200th, and there was a mighty fine crowd on hand to watch her bare feet pace the sidelines. With the win, the Seminoles tie the school record for most wins over a ranked opponent in a season.

By the way, 17th is the highest Florida State's ever been ranked.
