I find it intriguing that the overall story board was the same for both games -- except for the last 20 seconds.

Any theories?

Good teams find a way to get it together?
How about Brittany Jackson's three?

Tenn was only down 5 when UConn got that last offensive rebound. I there were almost 25 seconds left, why didn't they foul?

They tried to foul, but weren't able to get good enough contact for the crew to call fouls. I was surprised though that fouls were not called.

I agree, Drake. Did you work NCAA before you were in the WNBA? what was the attitude toward end-of-game-stop-the-clock fouls?

Some shot!! I thought I might have seen the hand of God sort of poke it toward the basket. But does that mean He favors Tennessee? or the underdog? or just loved the shot? or was it my imagination?

Definitely should change his name to Anderson, or something!

I like to think God was otherwise engaged. Probably had one of his local district managers there tho, some yong angel on the fast track!

So was I, from where I sat in my living room it looked like they had at least 1, maybe 2 opportunities to blow the whistle.

"Air enema"- hmmmm.....very cute! Implying that he's a sh*tty coach?

Forget him. Anybody else think that Pat Summit should be on the "Jim Boheim All-Time List of Whiny Coaches"?

great defensive substitution by UConn for that final UT throw-in.... Battle comes in and steals the inbound pass!
What a game! (And yes, even though my daughter goes to UT, I agree with JR about Coach Summit's whining at the officials. That's not to say that Gino didn't do his share of whining also.)

She sure likes to scream, doesn't she? Remember that sequence when there was a "cheap" handcheck foul on Tenn, followed by a held ball on a shot under Tenn basket? She was screaming at the official (Lisa Mattingly?), pointing downcourt, screaming...pointing...walked down to the endline & got in Mattingly's face prior to the throw-in...
I thought she was gonna have a stroke.

Thumbs up Free throws win games

At least the women know how to make their free throws...

Syracuse wouldn't have made the finals if TX could hit from the line. And then KS shoots 40% from the charity stripe. Think about it. KS shot better with defenders doubling on them.
