    Xavier/Stanford

    I thought Xavier was undeserving its consideration for a high seed - not so. I picked Stanford to win it all - maybe they aren't as good as I thought. We'll see.

    Did you see the end of the game (Xavier missing 2 point blank layups)?

    THAT is the reason I don't watch girls basketball.

    Or maybe Xavier should have been a #1 seed instead of Nebraska.

    Single game on-court performance certainly supports that.

    Make no mistake, I think Nebraska earned their seed. Regular-season champs of the best conference. But as you said, Xavier is very good - Stanford was lucky.

    I can't even remember the last time I watched a basketball game with that big of a choke job at the end of a game. To miss one uncontested layup is bad, but to miss a second one in unbelievable. Then when you don't think it can get any worse they let Standford dribble almost the length of the court to win on a layup.

    Anyone else notice that the Pohlen girl that made the drive was ISU recruit Kelsey Harris' former teammate?

    OK. Of course you could have changed the channel or gotten up for a beer if you were a real WBB hater.

    I've been biting my tongue on this, so don't flame me if I offer this up: Wasn't this kind of the season that the ISU MBB team had this year?
