Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Three programs looking to the future:

After 20-win season, future looks bright for Georgetown women

With the last of former Head Coach Patrick Knapp's players gone, coming off the first winning season under Head Coach Terri Williams-Flournoy, and welcoming in a nationally-ranked freshman class, the Hoyas were expected to continue to improve. By winning 20 games for the first time since the 1992-1993 season and making the deepest postseason run in school history, Georgetown did just that.
Marquette seniors end career wanting more
Angel Robinson's shot at the buzzer rimmed out, and just like that, the Golden Eagles' run at back-to-back WNIT championships was over.

With an overall record of 17-16, Marquette's disappointing season came to an end last Thursday against Illinois State, and Robinson's shot was a good representation of the struggles Marquette had all year long.

Robinson said the shot looked good, but as was the case for this team all season, it came up just short.
New recruit brings hope to South Carolina women's basketball program
The Gamecocks picked up the No. 2 recruit in the nation Wednesday night, but not in football, baseball or even men's basketball. No, it was women's basketball coach Dawn Staley who came away with the big prize.

Kelsey Bone, a 6-foot-5-inch post player from Sugarland, Texas, announced she would become a Gamecock during the first half of the McDonald's All-American Game in Miami on Wednesday night. She chose USC over Illinois, Texas and Texas A&M - all teams with no national championships. (WHB note - I guess finishing a perfect season in 1986 and winning the Championship wasn't all that memorable. Nor was Sheryl's 47 points as TT won in 1993.)
