    McBride got screwed. ND is 3-0 against UConn and McBride burned Faris and was a UConn slayer. All 3 games on national TV. Voters are idiots.

        Hey Freddie – do you agree about McBride – I sure do – am looking forward to Sunday’s games – go Huskies. Glad Stephanie and Kalena made the team – wish Kelly and Stewie had also been named, but maybe they will make second team. Keep on cheering that we get our 8th.

      Apparently, some fans are idiots too. You don’t get voted to AA honors based on just 3 games out of nearly 40 in the entire season.

          Looking for a good gel toilet bowl cleaner with good coverage and a powerful formula? Lysol’s Power Toilet Bowl Cleaner is one of the best. This stuff is heavy duty. Be sure to use precaution. Lysol’s formula has excellent coverage and really powers through even tough stains. Even icky under the rim areas sparkle brilliantly after being cleaned.

      I don’t think being named an AA is based solely on a performance against one team or player or what station they are televised on. I think this is more abot you hating Uconn. I agree she should have been named, but slandering Uconn will not change this.Please go back to your teams site and leave ours alone.

  2. Steff Dolson for Governor

    Think about this:

    Steff Dolson –scored on and held these player scoreless
    and they are first team AA and S.D. doesn’t .. get honorable mention

    Chiney Ogumike C. Bone (and a dozen others)

    What is it about Steff the voters can’t see. She tall, mobile, rebounds, scores inside and outside, on more winning teams than most of the others mentioned

    The Huskies are hitting on all cylinders now and will dispatch the irish easily. Look for far fewer calls in the irish favor since it will be different officials not partial to ND. Also remember Roll tide how they crushed the irish, UCONN will have their own version of roll tide, ready for the Irish. This is going to payback on the biggest stage! I can’t wait to see Diggins cry when they lose!

    1. The Truth


      The Huskies should be “hitting on all cylinders” since their last loss a month ago to ND. The last 7 games played by UCONN all have been essentially home games played in Connecticut. It’s laughable that you would say the refs working the Big East tourney in UCONN’s backyard (Hartford) were partial to ND. Similarly, how can you say ND got preferential treatment by the refs when they played in Iowa and Virginia in the NCAA tourney. You are implying that with UCONN playing all of its NCAA tourney games in Connecticut, it has not received any favorable treatment. What a joke.
      The fact is that Sunday’s game will probably be just like the last several UCONN – ND games, very close. We’ll see how well UCONN handles the pressure of being on the biggest stage playing over 1,400 miles away from the friendly confines of the state of Connecticut. McGraw is no Brian Kelly. She has a team that has been to the Final Four the last 2 years who are familiar with the pressure of that “biggest stage” and she will have them ready. You must be a truly sad person if your biggest hope for the game on Sunday is to see a player on the other team cry instead of anticipating the joy of your players if they win.

        Hey the Truth – take a look at the stats before you start mouthing off about UConn getting favorable treatment. UConn got called for twice as many or more fouls than ND. Look at the stats for the three games this season and I am willing to bet that ND got favorable calls in all of their games or at least more than half of them. The refs are not necessarily from the State in which the games are played I don’t believe.

        Go Huskies – win or lose, they are still our team.Truth – go post on the ND site – most UConn fans could care less what you have to say.
