Look, the Women’s game is just superior if you care about Basketball at all. Sure UConn is dominant and part of it is that they play from the Tip straight through because of their conditioning but it’s not like they’re bullies in the Paint- this is not Hockey. They rebound with authority at both ends because they move without the Ball and don’t just stand around. Same for their Passing Game. They hustle in Transition and Shoot with accuracy from distance or under the Hoop.
If they played in the Men’s Tournament they’d be a Sweet Sixteen every single year.
Now you may say well, without Geno… he’s been more than willing to share everything he knows and more and more ladies who have come up through his system are Head Coaches on their own. Perhaps one of them will succeed him, maybe not. It’s not the man, it’s the system.
And if you don’t think this is effecting the sport as a whole in a positive way you are not paying attention to the teams that aren’t UConn who are elevating their game every year.
Just UConn is elevating it more.
So yeah, bring it on. Women’s College Basketball is the best Basketball there is.
