Every tourney has a preview story and a results story, so it seems.
In the Big 12, today was Brittney Griner’s first game back for Baylor since punching an opponent last week. But it didn’t seem to do much good, as Oklahoma beat the Bears, 59-54.
Then there was the fact that Oregon Coach Paul Westhead and USC Coach Michael Cooper apparently have history. But it was the Trojans who prevailed tonight, and they advance to the Pac-10 Tournament semifinals tomorrow.
Stanford does have goals in the Pac-10 tourney. Because they don’t need to make it a goal to kick the asses of the other teams – that’s a given. They did beat Arizona, 72-52 today in the quarterfinals.
Cal beat Arizona State today by 10.
In the meantime, the NCAA continues to assign tournament locations to cities that don’t have a team in the mix. What a bunch of knuckleheads.
Hoopfeed asked today: wanna create a bracket?
And Cal State Northridge fired Coach Staci Schulz today after five seasons.
