Victory, Even In Defeat

There should be no confusion, simply watch the replay.

Watch Candace Parker grab a rebound, turn and put up a shot with the clock plummeting down to triple zeros. Watch that clock carefully. It goes really fast doesn't it? So how come it seems like an eternity before it goes from 0.02 to 0.00?

Rutgers was robbed. They should have become the first school to defeat two No. 1-ranked programs consecutively. They should own wins over the two most storied programs in the history of women's basketball.

C. Vivian Stringer knows that.

The Worst Thing That Could Happen

For Tennessee, the unthinkable almost happened.

Candace Parker is hurt. The All-American Player of the Year suffered an apparent knee injury - these things have been going around, haven't they? - in tonight's game against Mississippi State.

It wasn't a pretty sight when Parker grimaced, held her left leg in pain and hopped off the court with a trainer under each superstar arm with 3:09 left in a game the Lady Vols won 87-69 but played poorly throughout.

For the Lady Vols, it was downright ugly.

The Most Important Knee

Sylvia Fowles is injured...again.

Super Bowl Sunday wasn't so super for LSU's 6-foot-6 center. Despite her team defeating Florida in Gainesville, 85-71, the All-American was forced to leave the game early in the second half after re-injuring her right knee, the same she recently had surgery to repair.

LSU coach Van Chancellor's heart must have been in his throat when he saw his star go down again. Fortunately, the injury isn't considered too serious, as Fowles attempted to re-enter the game with 4:50 left until Chancellor basically said, "Not on your life," and told her to take a seat.
