College roundup

Well I’ll be darned – Oregon State routed Long Beach State last night, 71-39. But I don’t know if this necessarily says great things about the Beavers as much as it’s a harbinger of the season for Long Beach State. The 49ers dropped an exhibition game last weekend to a Division II team.

On the other side of the country, North Carolina State dumped Creighton.

Remember Elena Delle Donne? She’s carrying her Delaware team.

Yesterday’s full scoreboard.

In the meantime, I guess Louisville doesn’t suck anymore, because they’re being hailed as Tennessee’s main rival this year.

Lady Vol freshman Meighan Simmons is a hit with her teammates.

Stanford Coach Tara Vanderveer is more excited than usual about her team this year. She says they “get it.”
