Believe it or not, basketball is continuing outside the WNIT. Connecticut defeated Arizona 65-63 to advance to the Final Four. UConn is having a tremendous run after going 9-9 in the Big East, winning the BE Tournament, and now they're headed to Houston.
The 9th-place team in most leagues is lucky to make the NIT. The 9th-place team from the Big East just made the Final Four.
Yes, that's true! Most teams are fortunate to get nine teams into the postseason.
That reminds me of another certain 9th-place team last year:
Georgetown was ranked No. 14 in the Associated Press poll and reached the Big East Tournament final as the 8-seed. The 2009-10 OHIO Bobcats finished 7-9 in the MAC, was given a #9-seed in the MAC Tournament, and actually had to on the road in the first round. They beat a Big East team by 14.
So, cool run to the Final Four, UConn. Sucks to hear about Georgetown, though.
