Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

SI remembers there's such a thing as women's basketball and allows Kelli Anderson to do a nice piece on Louisville's Angel McCoughtry.
LOUISVILLE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR Tom Jurich hasn't decided yet where he'll put the statue of Angel McCoughtry, the Cardinals' 6'1" senior All-America forward. Should it go outside the new 22,000-seat Downtown Arena, due to open in November 2010? Or somewhere on campus? Perhaps a prominent spot among the array of facilities at the Cardinal Park sports complex? As he ponders this, Jurich sits in Freedom Hall, calling out greetings as a parade of wealthy and well-connected locals file into his suite to eat, drink and hobnob before the Cardinals women paste Pittsburgh 75--51 on Senior Day. "I want to make sure Angel is properly remembered around here as an icon, as a true pioneer," he says.
