Argue About What Brittney Griner Might (Or Might Not) Be All You Want, But Don’t Lose Sight Of What She Already Is
The Baylor women’s basketball team is probably going to win the national title, and they showed off why last night, obliterating Florida State 85-47 in second-round NCAA Tournament action. More specifically, the reason the Bears are running roughshod over everyone: they have Brittney Griner, and everyone else doesn’t. Griner’s the type of player who’s so dominant she spurs some to ask the “Could she play in the NBA?” question… but we think the ensuing (one-sided) debate obscures what should be the larger point here.
What Happened Last Night: Duke Crushes North Carolina, Baylor Upsets Kansas, And Bernard Hopkins Is The Champ
March Madness is nearly upon us, so you know there was some good college basketball action last night to help get us ready for the rest of the month. Oh, and history was also made by Bernard Hopkins. No biggie.
Geno Auriemma Got Caught Patting Baylor Coach Kim Mulkey’s Butt, But Everyone Was Totally OK With It
No. 3 UConn beat No. 1 Baylor Monday night in Connecticut in arguably the biggest game of the women’s college basketball season. But that wasn’t the story. The story happened before the game, when Huskies coach Geno Auriemma was caught in the act of patting opposing coach Kim Mulkey’s butt, as you can see above. It truly is one of the photos of the year. But believe it or not, Auriemma has an explanation!
The NBA All-Star break brought sports, mostly, to a screeching halt, so last night we were left with precious few colleges games, men’s and women, and some NHLing. Here are the highlights of what you missed.
Last night’s Oklahoma-Baylor game was noteworthy for a few different reasons. It was a tightly-contested battle between what have so far been two of the Big 12′s better teams, for one (Oklahoma’s finally building something good in the post-Blake-Griffin era), with the Sooners prevailing 74-71. There was the yeoman effort from Baylor freshman/lottery pick waiting to happen Isaiah Austin (19 points, 20 rebounds), for another. But mostly, there was this kid running on the court.

Did Brent Musburger Call Holly Rowe “Really Smokin’” To Wrap Up Last Night’s Kansas-Baylor Broadcast?
That we’re even having this conversation, again, probably shouldn’t be. But ESPN’s Brent Musburger might have dipped his toe into the awkward once again last night at the end of the Kansas-Baylor broadcast when he was signing off for the ESPN crew.
Much to discuss from last night – still some NBA, yes, but bowl season ramped up a bit, too. Oh, and while there wasn’t much college hoops action, what action there was made itself count. Let’s break it down.
Lache Seastrunk doesn’t care much for this Johnny Football character. He’s a one-year wonder, Seastrunk thinks; he can’t possibly win a Heisman two years in a row. Ipso facto, Lache Seastrunk will win the 2013 Heisman Trophy. He guarantees it. More, after the jump.
Baylor’s Lache Seastrunk had a huge game today against Oklahoma State: 179 yards rushing on just 16 carries and one touchdown on a 76-yard rush up the middle. That touchdown proved to be the game-winner. The most impressive part? He did it with a leg cramp.
There will be some major changes at the top of the BCS standings after this weekend as both no. 1 Kansas State and no. 2 Oregon both lost last night, while the rest of the top 10 (actually, the top 17) all won, and an unlikely new no. 1 team emerges…
