Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

From the NYTimes' "The Quad" blog: The SEC’s Final Hope
The Southeastern Conference has placed at least one team in the N.C.A.A. women’s Final Four in 18 of the past 20 years, including the last seven seasons in a row.

But that streak could end this year. Although seven SEC teams made the tournament, only No. 4 seed Vanderbilt reached the Round of 16.
And: Baylor’s Trying Season
After all that has happened to the Baylor women’s basketball team during this tragic, trying season, it would have been easy for the Lady Bears to buckle and bow out of the N.C.A.A. tournament.

How much can one team absorb and keep winning? More than you could imagine.
