Stanford And Baylor “Hoop” Crowns

April 6, 2021

A night after Stanford, under same coach Tara VanDerveer, again survived a potential last shot loss, in a clear no cover win, to claim its first crown since 1992 (on ViSN, the 92 of Pat Boone’s “1492” phone #, then the female voice said phone–each as I typed SAME), Baylor (5-1) vs the spread (they no covered Hartford, as a huge favorite in their first tournie tilt) ripped over rated, previously unbeaten (told you about Jalens, Adam Morrison on Gonzaga network taunted UCLA after Suggs’ lucky shot) Gonzaga, to win their first crown.

As I wrote after the Gonzaga win vs UCLA, it cost me, however, I am proud to say I watched none.

You people may continue to endure the useless, every play rants (this is one also, but I stand by my fervent belief, it is ridiculous, illustrated by Bill Raftery and Grant Hill doing a Steven Bishop going “on and on”), of so called game analysts,  however, I will not.

Baylor, which got a game high 22 points from Jared Butler never trailed and under Scott Drew, who dropped rhyming Mark Few to rhyming (0 and TWO) in title tilts, won its first ever crown, a scant 2 weeks after the great Elgin (Baylor) sans a title, but having lived a good life–a lesson to still titles conscious me— died.

In the “had to be,” LeBron (does Chase really need a James item, even if the undeserving, sadist to my masochist, and this is far later and severe than a cookie near OTB, Bellman gets his on line price?) in the 2020 NBA Final, however similar name Jimmy Butler was outstanding in defeat.
