I stayed up late Friday night for that game. Couldn't watch it since I don't have cable, but I kept refreshing EPSN.com with the score all through the 4th quarter and OT. Awesome win for MSU... too bad they couldn't follow up with a title.
Too bad in general that the women's game doesn't get the recognition it deserves. For the past several years I have enjoyed watching the women's NCAA tourney games (when able) much more than the men's. Those gals know they don't have 8-figure contracts waiting for them, so they stay in school 4 years, form solid teams, and play great fundamental basketball, all purely for love of the game. My best friend had the good fortune to get to see UConn play at Maryland during the regular season and said it was some of the best basketball he'd ever seen.
But you know... they can't dunk, so it must suck.
