March Madness is officially over. Earlier tonight (last night?), the Baylor ladies squashed their overmatched Michigan St. opponents, rolling to a 84-62 victory
. Overlooking the fact that I was completely owned with my (revised) championship game predictions
, it was great to see neither Tennessee nor UConn in the mix for the first time in 12 years. I'd really like to see the Duke ladies pull one out before I leave, but the departure of Monique Currie (WNBA
) won't help that.
In related news, Baylor's title is the first
in men's or women's hoops in Big 12 conference
HISTORY (okay, okay, so it's only been a conference since the '96-'97 season. still. big news). Kirk Heinrich and the boys at Kansas sure came close not too long ago
, but remember, almost doesn't count...
