Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

More on State's jumbo upset of Duke, from Sharon Crowson at Full Court and Voepel at ESPN.

Coach McCallie on the game's locale: "I'm sure it helped in some way, but the reality is, we didn't play very well. We played very poorly and if a team plays poorly, you have to give credit to the other team for doing some better things."

Voepel explains the unfairness of it all: "How does this make any sense in terms of integrity of the bracket? It doesn't... But for now, the women's game is stuck with it." (And we'll be stuck with it till first- and second-round games on neutral sites can fill enough seats-- as we saw in '07 and '08, at the moment, they simply can't.)
