Okay, so I didn't see any of the game. I didn't even see any highlights, except for the game-tying three-pointer at the end of regulation. I make no secret of not enjoying women's basketball. But at the end of the day, what the hell does my opinion matter? After what was by all accounts a hard-fought, well-played and extremely impressive overtime victory over archrival Duke (Duke Sucks!), the Maryland "Lady" Terrapins delivered the program's first national title and deserve their time in the sun. Put the women's college basketball elite on notice. There's a new kid in town.

Big ups, ladies.

Paced by
a gutty effort from senior leader Shay Doron and great coaching from Brenda "Hot or Not?" Frese, the Terps rallied to get the kind of victory I don't seem to remember the men folks getting this year. Come to think of it, with this, plus the University of Maryland sports victories earlier this season in soccer and field hockey, we're on a pretty nice roll! Whenever the high-profile squads want to join in, that'd be great. Goterps.

I love that the fans rioted after the game and burned shit again. I guess all that aggression got pent up from having nothing to "celebrate" with the men's basketball team. GoTerps!

Very true...eventually, this rioting business has to hit some kind of critical mass. One day, the Terp fans are going to be smashing car windows after a swim meet with Georgia Tech, and wonder when it all went so wrong.

i think it's a pavlov type reaction to the phrase "maryland vs. duke".

i know that over the last few days everytimes espn would hype the game, or i would just see the maryland and duke logos together on the same screen, i would get very very excited, for just a second. then i would realize that it was just women's hoops and not a big deal. but my heartbeat would quicken for that one moment.

fuck duke!
