  1. Ladyswish has some interesting ideas to promote WCBB. I continue to find it hard to understand how Val Ackerman will bring any new or innovative ideas to the party. She was handed the WNBA job and would have failed had it not been for NBA support. How does that qualify her to help WCBB?

    If anything Ackerman represents the past and what hasn't really worked very well. WCBB needs new ideas not Ackerman. Maybe they should listen to Geno; and this is from someone who isn't particularly a UConn or Geno fan.
