Watching these games helped me uncover the most entertaining parts of women's basketball, and even remove my prior bias that everything about women's sports is inferior. For example, junior forward Kayla Standish scored 30 points on back-to-back nights against Iowa and UCLA. While this is a standout performance at any level of the game, it is rare in men's basketball to see a performance like Standish's: 22-of-25 shooting, especially with most of her attempts being mid range jump shots (consistently referred to as a lost art in basketball).



Vandersloot and Standish exemplified that a successful women's basketball player cannot simply get by on athletic ability; that pure skill and high basketball IQ are essentials for the top players in the sport. This emphasis provided for a highly exciting atmosphere in a different way than the men's tournament has ever done for me.

I've said many times to many people that women's games are just as enjoyable and exciting to attend than men's games, if not more.

Already looking forward to next season.
