I realize that I’ve been going on and on about the WNBA lately, and obviously, because it’s the playoffs. One of the best series in years, too. But I love the late season this year because almost the minute it’s over it will be time for college ball. Basketball year-round, baby!
I’ve been asking for and getting women’s basketball team prospecti (at least I think that’s the plural for prospectus) from the PAC-10 and SEC conferences. I may do a few other schools, but there are many conferences in the US and I’m not sure if I’d have time to preview every single program. The PAC-10 is of interest to me as it’s our main West coast league, and because my friend and I are new UCLA season ticket holders. The SEC conference is a gimmie for me (duh). So those are my main focus points for now. But if anyone would like to see a team outside those conferences previewed, please drop a comment and I’ll see what I can do.
It’s interesting to see how fast some schools respond to requests for prospecti. Some media relations reps respond almost immediately; they check their email on weekends. Others take a few days. Some have to be asked again. And again. One school so far hasn’t responded to three email requests and a phone call from me, and that is Stanford. If they end up ignoring me completely, who knows what I may write about the Cardinal.
