    It wasn't just Barmore, the players were spent after that awesome win over Texas. Tennessee was pretty salty too (of course) and the Techsters simply left it all out on the court, physically and mentally, in beating Texas. If we hadn't dug ourselves that early hole, we might have recovered our legs and made a game of it. But, Pat Summit had that killer instinct and smelled blood in the water. She pressed us hard early and that was all she wrote.

    Tennessee had to beat a pretty good Long Beach St team though. If I recall, I was only 8 or 9, but I'm pretty sure we beat Iowa by one point to make it to the final four. And I wanna say the whole bracket we were in played in Monroe??

    Yes, I was at the game in Monroe. Iowa missed a shot at the buzzer that would have sent us home.

    Yes, me too. I think I was only 8 years old at the time.

    Not sure how good Memphis is considered to be in women's basketball, but this sounds to me like a quality home opponent. Assuming this is a return trip for our game in Memphis last year.

    The answer is not very. 14-16. I had them ranked below Grambling.

    However, the AAC will bring at least a bit of good RPI.

    Well, at least Memphis has a little better of a brand than any SWAC team does.

    Bingo. Even tho RPI doesn't matter in basketball, Memphis is still a reputable school and it should be good for a "name" win at the very least.

    Of course, anyone that cares about WBB will also probably know it won't do much good for our rating, but hey. Better them than *pick a SWAC.*

    We have so many contacts in the WBB world. When was the last time we played Alabama? Baylor obviously out of the question but I think there's a few more Techsters around the world who we should have on the phone for 1-1s.

    I would expect to see Alabama on future schedules. Brooke and Kristy Curry have a good relationship. Reminder that this year's schedule will primarily be the completion of Summitt's contracts (at LSU, at Auburn, Clemson, McNeese, Ull) unless Brooke are the other schools opted out.

    Good - I'm not complaining, just curious.

    If anything, our WBB OOC has been too tough, the opposite of TMac's preferred schedule. Spoon's teams dug themselves into mental holes early in the season thanks to tough front-loaded schedules, I think.

    I agree with you. Most of those were close games last year with Brooke. Losing too many to good competition can go one of two ways, though. It can be an incentive or get a team down because they aren't getting over that hump. I want a reasonable schedule that we can gain some confidence, but not too weak either.
