Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Starting with a shout out to all the writers who've made the time and, in some cases, paid their own way, to cover this important event, here's more on the WBHOF inductions:

From Georgia's student newspaper: Teresa Edwards inducted into Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame

From Mechelle: Lobo's legacy bigger than she knows
There was a recurring theme for Rebecca Lobo, who was inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame here this weekend. Again and again, she mentioned how it was just very fortuitous that she showed up in life the year after Title IX became law and at UConn as the program was truly on the verge of becoming a superpower in college athletics.

Lobo's homage to "great timing" is very sincere. But while she is right to point out her good fortune in those terms, it's equally important to mention the flip side of that. The time was right for her, but she was also right for the time.
