DePaul Lady Blue Demons Gamble on 'Duel in the Desert'

DePaul Lady Blue Demons Gamble on 'Duel in the Desert'
Even though DePaul Lady Blue Demons Coach Doug Bruno‘s grandchildren call him “Grandpa Demon, “ Las Vegas and the DePaul Blue Demons, despite the imagery, are generally not synonymous with each other. But there they are, in Sin City, and for good reason. They’re gambling that this tournament will make them winners once again. The five-day trip... Read more »

Did Phoenix Throw 2012 Season for #1 WNBA Lottery Pick?

Did Phoenix Throw 2012 Season for #1 WNBA Lottery Pick?
A controversial #1 lottery pick will make the 2013 WNBA draft awfully interesting tonight. The Phoenix Mercury earned the right to the #1 pick with just a 27.6 % chance. Seems like long odds, doesn’t it? So much less of a chance than the lowly Washington Mystics, who had the losingest record last season, that their  star player, Monique Currie, seemed to...

After Baylor, Women's NCAA Title Up For Grabs

After Baylor, Women's NCAA Title Up For Grabs
David vs. Goliath. Barbarella versus the steel-toothed dolls. The magic of  March Madness is watching little Division 1 NCAA programs overtake big, established powerhouses and making powderkegs out of them, watching them explode in their own dust. On the men’s side, no one went down harder than Ohio State and Thad Matta. Their “David” was... Read more »

107-2? Should There Be A 'Slaughter Rule' In Indiana HS Basketball?
In the NCAA Regional Basketball Tournaments, it’s always fun when mid-major Division 1 college teams (let’s call them “Davids”)—St. Xavier, Murray State,  Lehigh, Norfolk, etc., take on unsuspecting, swaggering  major basketball programs (aka, “Goliaths) like Duke, Kentucky, Louisville,  or UConn) and win it all. Hello, Duke vs. Lehigh in 2012….75-70 Lehigh…bye-bye to Coach Kin the Round of 64! Or... Read more »
