Angel...she's all that

and more!

Went to my first U of L women's game yesterday.  Hadn't been to a women's BBall game since the early 80's when Mercy High (and my little sis, Maria) ruled Louisville.

Maria wanted to go, but had a previous commitment, so I finally talked a fellow sports junkie and Card fanatic into a foray into what I knew would be a part Hannah Montana, part Tynker's atmosphere.

Thought we'd have a beer (or 8) and have a very mellow afternoon, talking (manly) sports, and occasionally glimpsing  some of the women's action.

Never got a chance to talk much...spent all our time punching and high-fiving each other over one smooth Angel move after another.

Impressed with...Angel...UConn's depth and talent...the size and intensity of the crowd (who also stayed to the end in a 20 pt loss)

....and my ability to have my stall of choice in the restroom at halftime.

Challenged, Huskies Answer

"...UConn could not stop McCoughtry, who scored 30 points, the most against UConn this season."

"...McCoughtry was brilliant, scoring 18 in the first half, shooting 8-for-12. No player had scored more than 16 against the Huskies this season. She did this despite three fouls, the third picked up with 3:03 left and the Huskies ahead, 39-22. And she finished with 30 despite not scoring in the final 8:12.

"They were playing hard the whole game," (UConn's) Montgomery said. "Any time we would make one shot, they would make one right back."

"It was tough to get the ball into the middle," Swanier said. "We had to knock down shots."

"...You know you are probably going to be in every game [with McCoughtry] because you have a kid that is very hard to guard," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said...Sometimes you just have to give the other team the credit..."
