I wanted to toss up a quick note of congratulations to our women’s basketball team, which, in defeating 14th-seeded San Diego today, won their first NCAA tournament game in 15 years, and only their second ever. A fantastic accomplishment, to be sure, but I know the team will not be satisfied without accomplishing even more, and I will be rooting them on as they take on George Washington on Monday.
I can’t comment on the game itself, as I only saw highlights on the local news this evening. For various reasons, I couldn’t make it down to Maples myself, and, for some reason, ESPN2 declined to show the game to me, deciding for some reason that I would be more interested in watching Pittsburgh defeat Wyoming. I was not.
Still, congratulations, ladies. Go Bears! Bear the Colonials!
