The Bulldogs ran out of gas after a monumental win over UConn Friday.
Coach Dawn Staley became the second African-American female coach to lead a women’s hoops team to a national title. The first, Carolyn Peck, gave her a piece of that net in 1999 and told her to hold on to it until she got hers. Staley said in tonight’s post-game press conference that she’d give Peck her net piece back and take part of her own to give forward to someone else. More on that later.
In the meantime, I have a story about Staley’s success paving the way for her growth.
Sad college coaching news:
It’s been rumored for many weeks now that Washington coach Mike Neighbors will leave to become head coach at Arkansas, where he is from. That sees to be a reality.
