NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament Semifinals 2019

Good Upsets! UConn (hard to be an underdog when you’re seeded #1)! Oregon (a genuine surprise)!

Showdowns tonight.

I’ll be watching Baylor/Oregon. Oregon is an unknown quantity and Baylor beat us by 11 on January 3rd. The story of that game is UConn couldn’t shoot worth a damn. They led by a basket at the tip and then it was pure Vettel- the view is always the same.

Same thrashing Baylor gave us, we gave Notre Dame and there’s no reason to expect any different tonight.

Be amazing if this motley crew was the next National Champion.

    The Oregon Ducks have the best 3-point shooting in the nation, 41.7 percent, and it shows. The lead and change back and forth since the start of the game. This is their first trip to the Final Four.

    This is Baylor’s first trip to the Final Four since winning the national title in 2012. While the team seemed to breeze through the play-offs, they are now getting a workout from a rookie team.

    Muffie is wearing a slightly below the knee leopard print skirt with a satin long sleeved light brown blouse with the usual inappropriate high heels. It’s a basketball game, not a cocktail party

    Geno always looks well groomed and dressed for a basketball games, dark slacks, white shirt, no tie and a dark grey jacket with the UConn pin.
