Gearing for Monday

Great feel-good piece on Green Bay’s Kayla Tetschlag. And in adding 18 points in today’s Horizon League semifinal, Tetschlag wasn’t even the high scorer on her team.

What? The young woman accused of killing MTSU guard Tina Stewart is out of jail, on a $100,000 bond.

Semeka Randall is bringing some of the same coaching philosophies to her job in Ohio that she learned from her former coach, Pat Summitt.

Tournament showdowns are set:

Yikes – Fresno State and Louisiana Tech will face each other tomorrow in the Western Athletic Conference tournament final. Earlier this season, at Tech, words were exchanged by coaches Adrian Wiggins and Teresa Weatherspoon which were caught on video. The confrontation culminated in Wiggins telling ‘Spoon to “have some class,” and ‘Spoon giving him a death look and then walking off to thrust her fists at the crowd. Suffice to say, there is no love lost between these two teams. I hope they have good refs tomorrow.

On the upside, Louisiana Tech has won its 1000th game.

In the Big 12, it will be Baylor vs. Texas A&M for the title tomorrow. ESPN talks to Odyssey Sims and Tyra White about the matchup.

It’ll be Stanford and UCLA facing off for the Pac-10 title.

High school:

As California gears for regional finals tomorrow, ESPN provides a tip sheet for the top players.

They also provide a tip sheet for the Alabama finals.

But the biggest news around these parts could be this: Mater Dei point guard Jordan Adams dislocated her shoulder in Thursday’s semis, and is questionable for tomorrow night. Wow!

In Oregon, Mercedes Russell put up 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds tonight to lead the Springfield Millers to the state 5A finals.

Pro news:

In the latest Los Angeles Sparks twist, Joe Bryant and Sandy Brondello have been hired as assistant coaches to Jennifer Gillom.
