Thanks for the props to two great teams and the best Conference in the country -- on the women's side.

Just pointing out a couple of things -- we no more call them "lady" huskies any more that you would call them the "gentlemen huskies.

You wrote:"Only a scattered few bothered to watch UConn run the table," and then wrote "UConn has a fanatical and loyal following" -- did you not notice the thousands of fans at the XL Center?

And, while RU/UConn is always a great game, this year's RU team has been hurt -- perhaps crippled -- by an injury that undermines their 55 defense.... Though watch as they get a great crop of freshman next year..

that being said, don't know of anyone who wants to encounter the Knights during the tourney -- or Louisville, DePaul, Pittsburgh.. It sure is fun to be a BEast fan!

Thanks for giving some attention to women's basketball. The UConn women have a rabid following (including my husband and me). We were at all of UConn's games all season - and at the Big East tournament. They play basketball as it was meant to be - a true team game. They are unselfish and run the fast break as well as any team. They are a joy to watch.
