Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

UConn v. Oklahoma tonight:
"I don't know that it's that important for me to have thought much about UConn, honestly," Coale said. "What are we going to do in one day to prepare for that game? Are we going to come up with a plan for who you don't have to guard on their team? I mean, come on.

"You have to go play, you can't beat yourself, and you can't be intimidated by the name on the front of their jersey. I don't know that it requires a great deal more thought. I know that sounds almost counterintuitive -- you'd think you would need all the prep time in the world for them. But I think you just have to go face them."
