Post-college glow

I’m still getting over the fact that college season has ended.


President Obama called UConn Coach Geno Auriemma yesterday to congratulate the team.

The Husky victory parade will be Sunday.

Cardinal fans welcomed their team home.

Louisville Coach Jeff Walz says he has a great situation.

UConn wasn’t a unanimous number one selection in the final USA Today poll.

Breanna Stewart is as good as advertised.

Kiah Stokes’ father says she’s at UConn for the long haul.

Florida Gulf Coast is ready to move on after a disappointing end to their season.

Iowa’s Morgan Johnson has been selected to play with the NetScouts Basketball United States All-Star Team.

Shooting hoops with Santa Clara’s Megan Fulps.

New Missouri State Coach Kellie Harper delivers the right message.

North Carolina Coach Sylvia Hatchell is savoring her Naismith selection.


Documents reveal that Iowa State’s NCAA violations were major. They involve 33 coaches, and every athletic program at the University. Wow.

Final USA Today poll.

Coaching changes:

Krista Gerlich is the new coach at UT-Arlington.

Mary Gleason has resigned at Houston Baptist. Donna Finnie is the interim head coach.

High school news:

The MaxPreps Basketball Coach of the Year is Duncanville’s Cathy Self-Morgan.

Illinois Gatorade Player of the Year Jackie Kemph is building her legacy.

Detroit’s Antania Hayes has fought past tragedy and into a bright future.

My college thoughts:

1. There’s plenty of parity in the game. But stacking the brackets the way they were makes it look like there isn’t. Why put Notre Dame and UConn on the same side? The Championship game was a let down after a great season.

2. It’s ironic to me that on one hand, Skylar Diggins gets backlash because she is attractive, while Brittney Griner gets clowned for being big. Women just can’t win.
