Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Thursday, March 19, 2009

A delightful piece from Sally Jenkins:
To follow women's basketball at this time of year feels like driving against one-way traffic. But it's worth it. While the largest audiences and coin are commanded by the men's NCAA bracket, don't forget to pay attention to that other postseason tournament, because it's the one in which the athletic scholarship still means something. In fact, you might have a better time. You get to watch the same sorts of heart-robbing upsets and marvel at the fact that athletes have learned to fly, without wondering whether the contenders will be in school next semester.
