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.
