Sorry to beat the dead horse, but the notion that women’s hoops is somehow comparable to the men’s game is still laughable. Last night’s UConn-Baylor game is a prime example.
The Huskettes, sporting a 79-game win streak, narrowly avoided the upset with a 65-64 win.
Check out the video as the game ends on two airballs (1:32 mark). Off a timeout, UConn gets a crap shot that flies three feet over the basket. Are you angry because I called Baylor’s final second heave, an airball?
Look at the clock. Baylor grabs the rebound with 5.8 seconds left and the best shot it can get is a 33-footer? Not enough time, right? Wrong.
Tyus Edney had 4.8 seconds left and got off a 4-footer in the 1995 classic UCLA win over Missouri.
The fundamentals are not better. The game is not more entertaining. And you don’t have next.
