Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

The NYTimes channels the AP: Auriemma’s W.N.B.A. Problem
Coach Geno Auriemma, whose women’s national basketball team is made up primarily of W.N.B.A. players, said the league’s summer season put the national team at a big disadvantage in preparing for this fall’s world championships in the Czech Republic.

The W.N.B.A. schedule allows few training opportunities before the competition, which begins Sept. 23. Auriemma said he hoped to have a few days in the spring — before the W.N.B.A. season — and a few days in early September with players whose teams are not in the playoffs.

I'm sorry Times/AP, but DUH! Anne Donovan had the same issue.
