Despite Shekinna Stricklen’s 22 points for Tennessee (27-9) and Glory Johnson’s 19, they became the first four-year Lady Vols class... Read more »

'DANCING' ON ST. PADDY'S DAY AT THE ALLSTATE ARENA
Doesn’t get any luckier for DePaul’s Lady Blue Demons. Monday night, at the packed McGrath-Phillips Arena, DePaul students, alumni, and media heard ESPN announce that the Lady Blue Demons had drawn the #7 seed in the Des Moines Regional, playing the #10-seeded Brigham Young University Cougars.

DEAR RUSH: HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR WOMEN!

DEAR RUSH: HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR WOMEN!
Dear Rush Limbaugh: Where did respect for women go? Who taught you manners? And…would your mothers be proud of you for all the “entertainment” you’ve provided, at women’s expense, through the decades? I put you in the same category with Don Imus.
