Nate identifies 2013 WNBA Draft prospects in the NCAA Tournament’s Bridgeport regional (I’ll be there! Thanks, mom!)

For the WNBA fans who haven’t followed the NCAA women’s college basketball season very closely, we’ll do a bracket-by-bracket look at a few WNBA prospects in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. Today we’ll begin with the Bridgeport region; while you’ve probably heard something about the highly touted Elena Delle Donne, there are a few others worth keeping an eye on as well.

FYI, my dean (he played point for Brown back in the day) LOVES Delle Donne’s game.

One of the realities of high school coaches: A LOT of work, very little pay.

Tom Tvrdy has resigned as the Seward girls basketball coach after guiding the Bluejays to the second longest winning streak in state history and a string of four straight Class B state championships.

Seward athletic director Steve Borer confirmed Wednesday morning that Tvrdy stepped down Tuesday afternoon, citing a desire to spend more time with his family as the main reason. Tvrdy, the Lincoln Journal Star Girls High School Coach of the Year in 2011, will continue teaching social studies at Seward.

Speaking of realities: we fans of NCAA women’s basketball lag waaaaay behind the gentlemen’s fans when it comes to filling out our brackets. Step it up, folks! Go here for the ESPN challenge and show that you care!
