Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

The LA Times' Jerry Crowe notices Paul Westhead is nearby:
"The fact it was the women's team, I found that attractive because of my experience with the Mercury," Westhead says during an interview in his office near Autzen Stadium. "I liked the way they played. I liked the way they just went after it."

He also liked the fact that Oregon, scheduled to open a new arena late next year, pursued him, encouraging him to implement the unorthodox, run-and-gun "speed game" that was so successful for Westhead's Hank Gathers-Bo Kimble teams at Loyola but was less rewarding at some of the coach's other stops.
