Iowa State WBB Team Advances to Elite 8

Now I'm no fan of women's basketball, but when it comes to our Cyclone WBB Team, I am nothing but excited to see them play. Bill Fennelly and his crew always bring a lot of energy and determination into every game they play. I actually had a chance to meet Coach Fennelly a few years ago, and he is truly an upstanding man, both on and off the court. Last night our women took on Michigan State in Berkeley for advancement to the Elite 8. The whole game our girls fought hard, sticking with the mighty Spartans. With 1:10 on the clock, the score was 68-61, Spartans up. I sat on the couch preparing for another ISU letdown. But then something ignited our girls and all the vigor they had been playing with began to explode onto the court. These girls really wanted it! Defensively they started the full court press and began to dash Michigan State's hopes by nailing every shot, taking an 8-0 run to defeat the Spartans. The final 7 seconds were nail biting, as Michigan State scrambled to get a shot up. They never did due to the toughness of our WBB and their will to win. Congrats Bill and crew, I will be watching you tomorrow night when you take on Stanford in the Elite 8. Go State!
