Lady Dores win SEC — but sorry about the hair

Congrats to the Vandy women, who beat Auburn last night to win the SEC championship. This season, No. 5 Auburn has lost to only two teams, Georgia and Vanderbilt. But now they've lost to Vanderbilt twice.

Auburn was clearly the bigger, more athletic team — kind of a trend regardless of which sport we're playing — but the Lady Dores played smarter and more together. Oh yeah, and they hit their threes and Auburn didn't.

If you haven't watched the Vandy women play this season, you should. They're a fun team to watch, and I don't watch a lot of women's basketball.

And you've got to love the first thing coach Melanie Balcomb said in the post-game press conference:

"First of all, sorry for my hair, I apologize."

Don't think you'll ever hear men's coach Kevin Stallings say that, huh?
