Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Sunday, February 15, 2009

Sue Favor over at Full Court reviews the JUCO world.
At least one former Juco player can be found on the rosters of numerous teams around the country, and in many cases it's more than that. Texas Tech has five players on its current roster from Jucos; Pacific University of Stockton, California, has two. Numerous other colleges have similar lineups.
Why the change? Trinity Valley Community College Coach Michael Landers said it has come from the ground up.

"AAU play has blown up and the game has grown," he said. "The WNBA has also been great for exposure."

The result, according to Landers, is that there are more women playing basketball who need a place to play.
