Women’s Basketball Sucks

January 19, 2010 – 2:36 am by Hickey


In an effort to cheer up my Charger-loving friends, I have tried to think of something that sucks more than Nate Kaeding in the playoffs. Besides Norv Turner in the playoffs.

The answer: women’s college basketball.

Now before you get your underpants in a bunch and claim this is just a sexist statement, let me explain. (And the explanation won’t be like Keith Hernandez backing up a sexist statement by saying “Hey, I love the ladies.”)

On Monday night, No. 1 UConn won its 57th-straight game by pounding the seventh-ranked team in the nation, Duke, 81-48 at Cameron Indoor Stadium. This comes shortly after beating No. 3 Notre Dame 70-46 and then-No. 7 North Carolina 88-47.

On the same night, the top-ranked men’s team in the country, Texas, fell on the road at No. 9 Kansas State. And that, friends, is the primary difference between men’s and women’s college basketball. One is competitive, while the other falls woefully short in that category.

Certainly UConn is a talented team, but unfortunately the Huskies are so good that they expose their sport as a complete joke. If the talent pool is not deep enough for the third-ranked team in the country to even come remotely close to the team that’s No. 1, how can the average person take the sport seriously?

UConn may be the best team in the history of women’s basketball, but they are probably the worst thing to ever happen to it.

  2. Hasn’t UConn also smacked Stanford in the mouth this year?

    One thing I will say about women’s college basketball is that all the top teams have no problems playing each other. I don’t think UConn’s men would play Duke, UNC, Stanford and Notre Dame in one season.

  3. This is, of course, not to say Notre Dame’s men’s team is any good. I was just rattling off teams that I know the UConn women have played and beaten handily.

  4. you could have just as easily kept the headline and then created a montage of women’s basketball “highlights”. you’re not sexist. you’re just spittin the truth. women’s basketball does in fact, suck.
