Fresno with some AMAZING teachers…
Interesting: Brown is
“I’m proud of our team. That was a great program win in terms of continuing to build that confidence that we can compete,” said Utah head coach Lynne Roberts.
“HEY!” says Ben Goren. “Pay attention!”
Northwestern’s four best players slapped down 81 points, shot 12-24 from three, and combined to tally 15 steals. The Wildcats scored 28 fast break points. The Cornhuskers led for 61 seconds. Northwestern won the first quarter (yes, women’s basketball has quarters now) 28-12.
It was a thorough dismantling of an actually good team, or, in other words, the best game any Northwestern basketball team has played this year.
I liked watching it.
Pretty sure my dad was there, and he liked watching it.
The other five people who were there probably liked it to.
Okay, that’s hyperbole. The lower bowl at Welsh-Ryan arena was probably 70 percent full, which, in truth, is a good showing for a Northwestern women’s basketball game. Which is INCREDIBLY messed up.
You stay put: Cheryl Reeve reaches agreement to remain as Lynx coach
I’m calling a 10-point loss to the Wabbits a GOOD loss for UNO.
Speaking of UNC: Sylvia Hatchell: ‘There are no allegations’ against women’s basketball
Amid a long-running NCAA investigation at North Carolina some have surmised that the women’s basketball program has become a scapegoat – that the NCAA might more harshly penalize that program while going easier on other teams, including men’s basketball.
But Sylvia Hatchell, the UNC women’s basketball coach, doesn’t see it that way. Instead, she sees no allegations against her program, and on Wednesday during an appearance at the Raleigh Sports Club, she questioned why it would be subject to any NCAA-mandated sanctions.
Jordan Cruz mostly recalls that she needed a break.
The 15-year-old freshman had just grabbed an offensive rebound and scored on a putback for McClatchy (Sacramento, California), when she pulled on her jersey to signal to coach Jessica Kunisaki that she needed to come out of that Feb. 4, 2014, varsity girls’ basketball game.
When she arrived at the bench, Cruz’s teammates asked if she was OK. They got only silence in return.
When the halftime buzzer sounded, with McClatchy enjoying a comfortable lead, everyone jogged toward the locker room. Everyone except Cruz, who sat silently on the bench.
It is to Oregon State’s benefit, especially now with another of its influential players sidelined by injury, that Jamie Weisner has become one of the most efficient scorers in college basketball.
Just as it was to the benefit of all involved, not least for their health, that she was similarly prudent when launching spears instead of jump shots.
The games we play are fundamentally simple. Run faster. Jump higher. Score more goals. That there is a level of complexity beneath, like the clockwork concealed beneath hour and minute hands, was clear to Weisner soon after she hefted a javelin for the first time as a high schooler.
In high school ball: Congrats! Rocky Mountain’s Emery Roy notches 800th girls basketball victory
More important than all of the above: NSU raises money for hospitalized athlete Amber Brown
“I was actually at the hospital today,” Ruffin said. “I was at the hospital last night. She’s doing really well. She’s out of the coma. She is responding to demands.”
“She gives you a thumbs up and blinks her eyes so you know she’s there and she’s just fighting; she’s a fighter. She’s gonna come out.”
