Showing Some Love to Those Lady Tar Heels

Lost in this horrible weekend was the fact that (1) the Duke women were dropped from the NCAA Tournament despite being tagged with the "best team in the nation on a mission with their veteran team totally hungry after losing the title game last season" label which UCLA is really hoping will work for them in Atlanta and (2) the fact the UNC women are in the Elite Eight with a chance to punch their own ticket for the Final Four tonight versus Purdue at 9 PM on ESPN.

Since Duke and NC State are both out and UNC has notched huge wins over Tennessee and UConn already this season which I would think make them the favorite to win the national championship. We can only hope the women's regional championship game goes better than it did for the men.
