Season over for Lady Dores

Well, I'd planned to watch Vanderbilt play No.1-seed Maryland in the women's Sweet 16 today but I went to the early showing of my daughter's ballet recital so I could watch the men's games, which finished tonight with a classic battle between Villanova and Pitt. Alas, the Panthers, my bracket's team to go all the way, fell at the end.

And so did the Lady Dores. Jennifer Risper's a great player but somebody 5-9 can play the post so long she's exposed, and Maryland's big gun went for 42 as the Terrapins erased an 18-point deficit to advance to the round of eight.

It was a fine season for the Lady Dores, probably the best so far of any of Vandy's sports teams in the 2008-2009 school year.
