Adia did the impossible, taking a program that was in the basement and now has them in the Final Four. She is the women's version of Lute Olson. The future is so bright. I will not be surprised if they average close to 10,000 fans a game next year.

Watched the Elite 8 game.. first women’s game I have watched in ages. McDonald & Bueckers is a really good star matchup in Final 4.

Flipping between Suns and Cats. I know it’s UCONN and they are the cream of the female crop year in year out but would this be like an All-Time upset with them 28-1?

They were the #1 team in the country and a 13pt favorite. I’m not a WCBB expert but going thru UConn and Stanford to win it all would be like what the men did in 97’. Regardless of what happens Barnes should get a lifetime contract.

Just awesome. Adia has taken this program and put some serious life into it. Will be interesting to see how this team performs next year when Aari is gone, but it should be a perennial tournament team as long as Adia is in charge.

It would be huge if Thomas and Baptiste decide to come back. Pellington is a very good player and will have a good shot at replacing Aari. She was the Big-12 FOY before transferring. Also, Barnes will probably get some nice players via the transfer portal. Season tickets are going to sky rocket. The program could be a money maker.

Pretty remarkable. I follow Stanford some because of Hailey Jones. when she was a senior in HS the HR director where I worked had a daughter that played on the same Mitty team. We had a big event at work and she brought half the team with her so we got to meet Hailey, down to earth kid was already committed to Stanford. if you didn't know it was not possible to guess which girl was the #1 rated HS player in the country. Knee injury ended her season last year. So thrilled for her to hit the go ahead shot last night.

But I am amazed Arizona beat UCONN, been figuring all week even if Stanford gets to the finals they're losing because Bueckers(sp?) is just so good.

Should be a good game.
