  1. Coach Hatchell's whining about foul calls on UNC vs. Delaware comes across pretty poorly from a 900+ game winner. I guess she didn't want to expand on UNC's game plan to go out and hammer EDD early and often to take her out of the game.

    Note to Hatchell – when you decide to beat up on someone on the other team it normally results in foul calls.
