Snapshot of USA Basketball's facebook page as of 12:30 AM Eastern Time on August 10. Diana Taurasi was on the cover on Wednesday until the Team USA men's basketball team torched Australia in the quarterfinals. So you know, Sue replaced LeBron on the cover and she's been online for pretty much the whole evening since at least 6 PM. I think the women's team is finally getting some respect now.
Stats aren't yet up at USA Basketball, but it looks as though USA fared quite well against Croatia earlier today.
A few quick scenes from Denver encompassing the 2012 NCAA Women's Final Four festivities. The action ranges from the (unexpected) snow to the WBCA All-American game, from practices to press conferences. And of course to the champions from Baylor.
A stupid sketch with a poem by Jack Prelutsky. I don't have a tablet right now but I wanted to add this to this tumblr reblog: The character is Natasha from my webcomic Firework. I just sketched this while at a press conference without a ref so I'm pleased that I screwed up the anatomy less than I usually do. I need to make a really good portfolio for animation school by March.
"That was one of the most incredible individual performances I've ever seen on this court." Tara VanDerveer on Nneka Ogwumike's 42 point, 17 rebound performance against Tennessee.
Shannon, resident Minnesota Lynx and Stanford fan, is at it again with a graphic honoring the Lynx to complement her previous tribute to Lynx point guard Lindsay Whalen. But more important is the narrative she attached to the image on her Tumblr explaining the links between Candice Wiggins, Maya Moore and Seimone Augustus from their college years. Shannon's post is also a great time to remind you that Swish Appeal won't (totally) shut down with the end of the WNBA season - there's still a whole college season coming up and we're excited about this season's coverage.
