    In Women's Final Four news

    UConn has it's perfect undefeated season ended once again in the Semi-finals. Last year, they lost to MState in overtime in the Final Four on a last second shot. Last night, Notre Dame beat them on a last second shot in overtime to move on to the finals. Two undefeated years ending in a loss in the semifinals in a very similar fashion.

    The final will be MState and Notre Dame. MState got here last year and lost to South Carolina. There could be a similar fate awaiting for them again. Notre Dame looked really good last night. Both Semi final games were overtime games, which was pretty exciting.

    Poor ole Geno....

    I tuned in the 4th qtr and it was exciting stuff. ND built two 5-point leads in the 4th and at the end of OT, and both times UCONN rallied to tie it, in mere seconds.

    Watching the game drove home the point in the difference of talent of the elites and where we are presently. We have a player or two who could make their roster, but wouldn't be starters, and they have a bench of talent just as good and better. But Loyola-Chicago plays today in the Men's FF. So, never say never.

    Totally agree..... I think Notre Dame just had more raw emotion of wanting it and that was the difference. Geno has the talent - that is VERY clear, but that team is not used to close games and Notre Dame is definitely a "gut it out" type team. I am cheering on Loyola Chicago today!!!!!!!

    Que the talking heads remarks; "UCONN plays in a weak conference... bla bla..". I think it's a positive that UCONN can't get into the ACC or Big East. I think it helps to weaken the power 5 .

    Would have been nice to add Starkville to the swath of Lubbock, College Station, Waco, Ruston, Knoxville, Columbia, and Norfolk.

    Re: In Women's Final Four news

    That final four was incredible. Between the semifinals and finals I watched more women basketball than I have in the past 5 years combined.

    It was however a bad no call that would of sent MSU to the free throw line. Even if MSU takes the lead Ogunbowale still gets the last shot and who is betting against her.

    *Watching Ogunbowale reminded me of watching Betty Lennox in the TAC.

    Great close games in the FF this year! Made it exciting, at least!

    Re: In Women's Final Four news

    ND was amazing. Not just this weekend....look at who they beat to win it all....UCONN and MSU were a combined 73-1...but all year, they lost 4 players, some starters, to injuries and were down to just 7 scholarship players. Didn't make excuses or get down on themselves, instead they used the adversity as a rallying point.

    Moo State still has ZERO national championships in a team sport, men's or women's, any sport, in their entire history. Until recently, South Carolina was in the same boat. And there are many other schools, a bunch of P5ers, without a NC. We have.....six, I think it is.

    Congrats to ND. Great comebacks too. Trailed Moo State by 15 early in the 2nd half, and trailed UCONN by double digits as well. The Irish simply wouldn't quit.

    Yeah, there was no doubt in my mind that they deserved it after fighting back like they did in the last 2 games. They were amazing and had a hunger that wouldn't let them quit. Those last second shots in both those last games were amazing!!!!!

    I didn't realize MState had never won a National Championship in anything.... I would love to see a ranking of all D1 schools with the number of National Championships for each across all sports. It might show that there are some G5 schools just as powerful as P5. Of course, UConn is now a G5, as well.

    Our 2nd half comeback against Auburn in '88 was similar to what ND did last night.
