The business before a big hoops weekend


ESPN will have the rights to broadcast the NCAA Tournament through the 2023-2024 season, thanks to a new agreement.

Former NCAA vice president Sue Donohoe has been named executive director of the Kay Yow Fund.

The petition against stipends for NCAA athletes reached 125, so the governing body is putting the proposal on hold.

NCAA team news:

#1 Baylor and #2 UConn face off Sunday. ESPN’s Mechelle Voepel wonders if this is the next big basketball rivalry.

Coaches Kim Mulkey and Geno Auriemma speak.

Kara Lawson breaks it down.

The Tennessee Lady Vols arrived in Los Angeles a couple hours ago, in preparation for their game Saturday against UCLA (YEEAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!) They are not planning to “freak themselves out.”

Dishin & Swishin has a cool conversation with Nnamkadi and Chiney Ogwumike and Ros Gold-Onwude about hoops and Nigerian heritage, among other things.

At Wisconsin, it has been a slow start to the Bobby Kelsey era.

Former Washington State Cougar Ki-Ki Moore has made an immediate impact for Fresno State.


  1. A Baylor/UConn series isn't likely. (That's fine with me, BTW, since I can only take so much Geno each season.)

    'The two-year home and home contract expires and although there have been some conversations about extending the series, Mulkey was skeptical that it would happen.

    “I don’t think so,” Mulkey said. “We’ve had talks. We couldn’t and they couldn’t and just never got anywhere. That doesn’t mean it won’t happen. That depends on television; that depends on what we get invited to. Both programs are going to be outstanding. It is not because we don’t both want to, but he may want to do it on this date and I may want to do it on another date, things like that you have to work out in the future.”'
