LSU, the posterchild for futility, decided it would be a great idea to make another Final Four this year, making it five in a row. They also decided it would be a good idea to have a suffocating defense which has become a hallmark of the Lady Tigers’ team. They also however, decided it would be a good idea to have zero options on offense outside of the play of Sylvia Fowles.
The Lady Vols, also somewhat one dimensional, found enough outside offense in order to hold on to a lead until well, pretty much the end of the game. I suppose that’s a good time to hold onto a lead, but this team apparently likes drama, and pulled off another last second heroic, knocking off LSU for the second time this postseason (tell me if that’s fair).
Now the Lady BasketVols turn to face Stanford in a rematch of earlier in the season where Stanford was able to knock off Tennessee in overtime. Pat Summitt will no doubt use that as a motivational tool to yell at some players (not that she ever really needs an excuse), and the players will no doubt use that as a great opportunity to check the battery levels on their ipods.
Good luck to the Lady Vols who will play in the only college basketball game left for the season (the one tonight doesn’t count), and beat some christmas trees. I mean, honestly? A tree?
