Starting to itch for more NCAA tournament games

NCAA tournament:

Mechelle Voepel and Graham Hays have generously broken down every upcoming game of the Sweet 16.

Team bonding makes Stanford a title contender. Yep….in the post-game interview at the semifinals of the Pac-10 tournament, Nneka Ogwumike said, “this year the team is special because we’re very close.”

Ohio State Coach Jim Foster and Tennessee Coach Pat Summitt go way back: Foster used to coach at Vanderbilt.

Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins digs being a role model.

WNIT:

After last night’s WNIT game, don’t look for a Florida-Florida Gulf Coast rematch anytime soon.

Recap of Wednesday’s action, plus tonight’s scores:

Syracuse 72, Eastern Michigan 63
Virginia 53, Boston College 48
Charlotte 81, Florida 77, OT
Illinois State 79, Duquesne 66
Colorado 70, Wyoming 58

And so Virginia Coach Debbie Ryan survives to see another game as her tenure winds down.

High school/college:

All those coaching changes aren’t going down well with some. Bria Smith has been released from her national letter of intent with Virginia.

Junior Kristen Gaffney will reopen her recruitment in the wake of Beth Dunkenberger’s resignation at Virginia Tech.

WNBA:

Legend Vickie Johnson will be an assistant for the Silver Stars.

Sad case continues:

The case of former Middle Tennessee State guard Tina Stewart’s stabbing death will be heard by a grand jury.
