    Best part about SC winning the NC, is that Moo State was not the best team in the tourney. Pigtails and UCONN lost to Moo State and now they can't say, well, Moo State was awesome and over-whelming champs. Nope! SC would have whipped both by double-digits.

    WBB...gotta love it.
    Nice having you over here. Maddawg would never have written this!

    Also very pleased to see SC coach Dawn Staley get the NC.

They can still get close to the best, but will have plenty of competition for the top high school players from here on out.

    Their advantage outlasted us, because they had the Big East name behind them for a long time. That is gone. We all knew that when we fell, it would be extremely tough to get back. Barmore alone kept up at the top or close. Geno may be able to do that for a while, but I don't think you will see UConn completely rule WBB over the next 5 years anything like what they have done recently.
    I doubt it. Everyone knew this was a down year for them (making the final four in a down year isn't bad). Next year they have three new top five players coming in -- and lose only one significant player. They're not going anywhere until Geno retires.

    You may be right. I guess I am saying that it will take a bad year (this really isn't that) and they will have a tough time climbing back up. If they are still loaded this year, they will make another run at it. This is a crack in their recruiting, hopefully, though.

    I predict UCONN wins the WBB NC in 2018. And, there's a 99% probability they will be unbeaten too.

    As long as they are TeamESPN, I just don't see a crack in their recruiting. If you're top female athlete and you know you'll spend a lot more time on TV, have a better chance at a national title and possibly even have a better chance at the Olympics, why would you go anywhere else? I'm impressed that Kim and Staley and McGraw are doing as well as they are considering how badly the deck is stacked against them.

    wbb is in big trouble -

    Talking about moving Regional Finals back to campus sites due to very poor attendance - 3,000 actual or so in most instances

    This will only make UConn and Baylor that more formidable
