An entry about college basketball is overdue. I was hoping I'd approach the subject generally, but then I saw this box score of the Rutgers-South Florida women's game. Rutgers won 66-65, but its star Cappie Pondexter outscored South Florida's Jessica Dickson 40-37 (though apparently some defense occurred).
Given the context, this quote from the game recap is kinda funny:
"It shows a lot about our character," Pondexter said. "The fact that we were able to fight and not give up. We could have easily folded."
"Our"? "We"? Apparently the coaching staff at Rutgers concentrates their teachings on making quotes about teamwork in the press room as opposed to, I don't know, passing the ball.
High individual scoring, low team scoring. Who knows when we'll see an outcome that ridiculous again? My guess is tonight, as the Los Angeles Kobes host the Cleveland LeBrons. The NBA... it's crap-tastic.
