Lady Bears in Final Four

On March 29, 2010, in Uncategorized, by admin

What a season. Tonight, the Lady Baylor Bears defeated Duke in what was a potential sweep for the Blue Devils in Elite 8 play. Hats for both schools having both men’s and women’s in the Elite 8. As most of the nation knows, BU men fell to Duke on Sunday 78-71 in a game that went to the wire where, likely, the team with much more experience in big games closed the deal vs. the the team who as just as talented, but not as used to being on the big stage. It takes a lot to win at this level. Hats of the men for a season where they were picked to finish 10th in the Big 12 conference, but went to the Elite 8 in the NCAA tournament. Barring defections to the NBA for two of the players, these guys will be a force next year with the nations no 3 (www.rivals.com) player coming in.

But hte Bu women, well, with 6’8″ Briteny Griner the media rage, they wer picked to win the Big 12 in pre-season polls. Instead, their youthful team just reeked in Big 12 play. However, tonight, they earn a birth to the Final 4 in NCAA tourney with a win over Duke. This after mowing oer 1 seed Tennessee. next up, Connecticut, with a 80 something win streak, I do not expect the Lady Bears to get pass them. But then, I did not expect them to be anywhere close to the the Final 4 as well. So, hats of to them. I will have my happy fat ass in a seat in San Antonio this weekend. Baylor Nation, you need to be there as well. What a great season!
