Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Maya Moore spent most of the first half on the bench in foul trouble, but it didn't matter: the Huskies led by 14 at the break and won by 40 at the end, destroying Florida State on the way to UConn's eighth Final Four.

The margin of victory was apparently the largest ever in an Elite Eight game; UConn's defense was especially fun to watch (unless you're a Seminoles fan), as all five players cooperated in forcing the Seminoles to take bad shots. ESPN's Wojchieowski watched the FSU squad prepare valiantly for what turned out to be a one-sided game.

"We still have some things we need to improve. We're not perfect," Moore commented: we'll see how the Huskies improve, and what they decide to do, against Griner Baylor Sunday night.

No doubt bummed by the absence of local teams, the Dayton daily paper nonetheless found a cool local angle on Tuesday night's game.
