  1. I hope EDD drops 30 on PHX. Then maybe we can quit hearing the Spin. Today's game appears to be sold out so we'll see what happens after that.

    It appears everyone is interested in seeing Griner's Viggo Mortenson inspired tats and she is totally proud of them. Score one for the Eastern European Mafioso wannabes. I wonder what would have happened at Baylor if she hadn't been sporting the sleeves to cover the tats when she rearranged Barncastle's face back when she was a freshman. By the way, pretty interesting that in the early ESPNW photos Griner's "Stars" were photoshopped out.

    Julie Hermann is in big trouble at Rutgers. This will not have a happy ending. It's too bad as she did a good job for Louisville. Nebraska it appears not so much. That said if ASU could stick with the Lisa Love disaster Hermann deserves as much of a chance.
