South Carolina Gets Its First Win Ever Against UConn

"I have to say you know you're allowed to lose it am. Am gave once in a while. The other team plays better than us. so how `bout you write that somewhere. South Carolina play way better than Connecticut. That's allowed to happen once in a while and it's not like. What did you guys do wrong this year? We're like every other team in the country. God Forbid Horse That Ladies and gentlemen was the voice. As of Gino Auriemma the head coach of the Yukon. huskies on Monday night after they took a loss to the South Carolina gamecocks number one team in the nation. Welcome I'm into your ESPN w women's basketball podcast. Around the Rim I am your host China Robinson joined as always by my fantastic and fabulous producer to Rica. GEICO foster Bradsby and the story of Monday night was not that uconn loss. It wasn't even that South Carolina one because as you know I've been on the South Carolina Allina train for a minute. They've been number one in my AP poll for a while so we knew the gamecocks were probably going to dominate that game. However oh yeah and they did it behind tie? Harris who played forty minutes had nineteen points eleven assists and should be on everyone's national player of the year radar but the story. It was more about looking at that environment. South Carolina eighteen thousand heads pay team thousand fans in colonial life arena. The environment was incredible. You feel it coming through your television and I referenced this on my twitter but when dos daily got to South Carolina. No one saw this happening. No one saw her being successful. Well some of US did but everybody was like. Oh she can't do it there you know but she goes on to win the National Championship. Well how are they gonNA fans well. They got eighteen thousand in their last night. And I said this and I just WanNa references quickly and then we'll move on from this story we've got so much to cover but dawn invested in the marketing of her own team. She put her own staff her own resources out of pocket into building that that program in the community. She shook hands like the. NCAA needs to do a study of how she is built at. Because I don't know about you but it was beautiful. It was amazing. I tweeted about it as well. I took a screen shot from my computer to post that with the with the line. People say that no one watches women basketball. You're right like you can't even say that. Eighteen thousand eight hundred thousand. It was beautiful and just a testament to what can happen When the investment is made in obviously the athletics department is well but shoutout to the gamecocks just had an awesome display of their team but also the environment on Monday night?

The End of UConn's Dominance?

"China Robinson is a women's basketball analyst at ESPN and the host of the around. The Rim podcast. Tonight we've got uconn women's basketball ascot ball versus Tennessee to traditional powerhouse rivals. Though hasn't been that case for a while now and for you on in particular. I think it's been an interesting year. If you haven't been paying attention to Uconn over the last few years you might assume that they're just gonNA blow them out like they blow out everyone but that hasn't been the case recently. No no it has not and in case. You're checking the trophy case. There has not been a national championship. Kinship Trophy in stores over the last three years which is reason to panic honestly Meena. It's all relative to Connecticut. Success asked him they have eleven national championship so the standard is always going to be national championship or bust. It is a story line for sure because we used to be able to just check the box pencil in Connecticut. Moving right along but has more gray hair right now than I used to. Seeing this group Pez definitely tested the boundaries of what we know to be uconn success and so it should be an interesting game Tennessee mm-hmm so they're still very good. They're just not worldbeaters the way they used to be. I mean there's there's sixty one and they have not how lost to an unranked team since two thousand twelve so like our expectations are almost like it's really kind of ridiculous Gino's talked about it for sixteen and one. What do I have to answer why? We're not waiting for why we missed so many shots or why we turn the ball or why I like what I thought the object was to win the game. These right like the goal is to win we're used to seeing Yukon be Yukon like b-teams by fifty. Not some of the questions that were asking about their program. You should write because there is a kind of fall from grace. They haven't made it past the final four in the last three years after winning four straight national championships but to say that Connecticut is not a good team and some of the other things. We've heard out here. That's just to me a little bit of a stretch. I think you make a good point which I know. which is it's? It's more about the standard the expectation and that this program set as recently as the twenty sixteen season they went thirty eight zero but it was after that as you point out when they started to slip a little bit. When did that I begin? The recent slippage to me has everything to do with the graduation of Rian Stuart. Poynter the Rian Stewart is a player like we have never seen in college basketball. He's most outstanding player of the final four four years years in a row. When you look at Connecticut success it's been connected to great players like Brianna Stewart won four of those eleven championship? It brings back in two thousand thirteen. Diana went three for you. GotTa try more with two seven. It has won the national championship. Dino said it himself he once said hey we have Diana to Rasi and you don't now is the difference between them in the rest of the country and or time. That was everything and that to me has been a key to their dominance is having that Maya Moore bringing a Stewart Dinas Rasi easy when so the conversation even if you go way way back and look at the history of Tennessee in Connecticut. For example that then women's College basketball did not have have the depth of talent in my opinion that there is now so it was like if you didn't get should be Coleslaw. Good luck if you didn't get Rebecca Lobo Good luck so so what we're seeing now is not just about what you con- is not but that other programs are competing recruiting Asia Wilson. WHO's the number one overall a player coming out of high school goes to South Carolina or Haley Jones? The number one overall recruit goes to Stanford then the conversation starts to change so now there is more good players and as you're saying they're more spread out across programs. Do you think any of them chose not to go to uconn because of you know the competition in a successor. Do you think it was just the product of other programs grams. Making good cells to them. First of all Gino's not for everybody when I watch game film. I'm checking what's going on the bench. Somebody's asleep over there. Somebody doesn't care hear. Somebody's not engaged in the game. They will never get into ever and they know that I'm not kidding. You know. I mean his his coaching shing style. The expectations everyone is not cut out for that. Think about Elena de Leon who actually went to Connecticut and that no thanks and

"He's a round with what China Robinson Hello Basketball Fans. It is your favorite time of the week or some of our cats have reminded us your favorite time of the last three weeks because we finally have a new the episode of Your Espn w women's basketball podcast around the rim. I'm your host. China Robinson joined by my fantastic and fabulous producer producer to Rica Foster Bradsby. one notably missing person from this podcast is our co host two time. WNBA champion Devereaux Peters that would be because devereaux is booked in busy and I just want to say that the reason why we have not had a podcast in three weeks is mainly because to regain. Dev are busy a shine. I've got receipts that I will put on twitter later if they want to force me to clearing my name but the kind of slanderous conversation that was happening in regards to my role in why we have not had a podcast is just it's it's lies. It's it's fake news. I will not let you Besmirch Arch my good name out here talking about it was me fans. I just want the record to say that I am always available. Even when I'm not available I still make myself available. The China Endeavor are two very busy individuals who have very low very demanding careers and you know me I'm just chilling. I'm just chilling at home on twitter doing that. They're waiting for these two so let her pull her receipts if she wants to. I'm not gonNA address this right now. In its entirety was good. China Dev Really Really Kelsey Plum. That's what we do all right now. Now that's fine by the way. Kelsey playoff plum okay as she is now named even no the Las Vegas as departed the WNBA plops playoffs and we're going to talk about that just so you guys know. This is a full out playoff. Show like we are talking about all the juice. What's that we've missed over the last three weeks. From the ridiculous dierks Hamby heave in the devastating into the Chicago sky season. Two playoff plum to Liz cam a telling the mystics to get in the weight room to I'm candace Parker. Getting benched in game three of their playoff series with the Connecticut Sun to where we are now which if you are not paying attention the Connecticut sign in the Washington mystics are in the WNBA finals game. One has already happened game. Two is set to happen tomorrow so we've got you covered on all of it but yes in regards to the what's good let China which Kelsey Plum did say to me during a game which actually Lee. Let's just let me put this. She did not say what's good luck. China k. what she did say cannot be repeated on air because it was there was curse word involved in basically what she was saying was like mess with me. Let China Light. Hey let's you know get on this because I'm about to take off you know but she said a little curse work she. We did confirm that with me. She was like actually what I said was but I miss with plum. I really like her. She is such a competitor she she said in the post game preser- reser. She said you know what someone actor about it. She said no no I really likely China which is true we we have a great back and forth relationship but she listens to the Games aims and she gives me you know crap. She's got questions about something. I said and I go right back at her and say this is what I saw and I like that kind of dialogue with players like I'm going to be real like I could like Cuban. Still GonNa tell you the truth and so let's just let's get that out there. We could be friends I could like. You think you're a cool person but if you make a bad decision on the court or you do something on the court. I am going to say that period. and I'm always going to express my opinion opinion and hopefully that's respected but yes I mean a plumber good air by cool off with the drama but yeah so we've got a lot to talk about on the show so regarding still here I am. I was just over here taking dad's not here so he was just taken out so I was. I was taking notes because I absolutely I will well. I know that you you end Kelsey. Plsy has been on the show a couple of times so she's she's definitely dope so yes. We need to get her bag. We had our we here's the thing we have not had her on the show. As a member of the LAS VEGAS ACES okay slow we need to do that. Yeah we had on the show at when she was a student at Washington and we had her on the show her rookie season but we have not had are on the show just since she's been Las Vegas so number number two we need to do that. We do too YEP number. Two is do not steal from us. The fans what we have come to love over the last three days the was good China has really pivoted our twitter accounts in we are going to continue with it. So are we why nobody acts how I felt about that. I was just taking notes but we do have a packed show. I'm very excited. At some point. We are crossing our fingers. That Dev will eventually join us on the show so if you do hear a third boys as you know in advance. That's that's what happened. have you show up. Let's go we gotta show to do all right. Well basketball fans Sunday was the big day day that all of us have been waiting for which was game one of the WNBA finals and I. I'm not sure that those of us here in New England got the results that we wanted but for the majority of the world it turned out to be exactly what most people expect it which was a of good offensive performance from Washington who won last night of ninety five to eighty six LA- China I. I think it's fair to say that Ariel Atkins head a heck of a game to really catapult the team. I'm over the threshold. We knew what we were going to see from. Elena Delle Dom but just from your perspective overall. What did you see from Washington or at least what did you think you would see from. Washington coming into this game versus you know what did you see from them on the court on Sunday so let me say this. I think what we saw in game. One from Washington had a lot to do with Laws Vegas and I don't want anybody to take this the wrong. Wasilla me express myself here. Las Vegas got better as the playoffs went on because if you remember they had a brutal losing streak to end the regular regular season they can get back on track. I think they'd be Phoenix on the road but on the road they were like really bad right down the down the stretch of the regular season and they had some tiredness. Yes we never team hits their wall so that was the Las Vegas as is and I don't know how confident anybody felt in their ability success in the playoffs despite what we have seen from them all year which they've been a solid team definitely a championship contender but it's like they hit a rough patch at the wrong time like every coach will tell you I want to to start the play offs or in the regular season headed to the playoffs playing our best basketball. We can all say that was not the case with the aces however however the heave by Derek Hamby the big shot that she made at the end of that Chicago Las Vegas game in the second round of the playoffs which by the way came with much controversy but her hitting that shot seemed to really renew the Las Vegas now. They played well in that game. Don't get me wrong but I think that shot to them was their proof. That destiny wanted wanted them to have success in these playoffs because they got such a punch from it. Now we'll talk a little bit about the actual Chicago situation and how all all of that went to tie it back into what I was saying about Washington even though it didn't go five that was a hard fought series for Washington like Vegas has such a physically and mentally draining team like you have to really be putting in a lot on both ends of the floor to really beat them at the end of the day they have size which you can't teach which no matter how you scheme wears you out by by the end of the day because you're going up against six eight six five like every time down the floor pour la Toya Sanders in emmys cement and everybody else that had to jump in on on that duo of Asia Wilson and Liz Cam Beige but we saw some brilliant from both of them most notably Cambay who was outstanding with a double double just about every night I thought Asia Wilson had definitely some off nights but they really made Washington have to show a different level of toughness and I've said this repeatedly during the series series they may work for every shot like she had to really work hard vegas was the number one defense in the league all year and we saw a lot of that reason the the reason why because they they gave the mystic some trouble now even if that was just for the one game that Washington loss that we saw it we saw that effort effort actually turn in Vegas his favor you still felt like just about any game could have gone way down to that plum shot where she got fouled which we can talk about that later we will talk to the list of Jews because we just got so many things that debate but I think we saw a Washington team that just came out of a series where they really had to fight and another thing that we saw was Connecticut Sun team that had just played in their first final game not taking anything away from Washington but experience counts. I talk about this all the time with WNBA T. That's like listening when you've been there done that like you're. It's an advantage manage. You know when you know how to prepare yourself mentally because it's different like the media availability is different and just the hype around it is different. You Got Family Family texting you about tickets and all this stuff I mean I definitely wish devils on here so she could speak to this but just a different levels of different level for us as broadcasters. You know people want to okay. We come down the floor and just get a quick interview for the game starts or you know different things we have to do in talking to to to newspapers writing stories like more than anything. It's just a different level so I thought that Connecticut giving up thirty points in the first quarter was just a sign of a team. That's like okay. We're in the final finals houses all work now they have not shied away from from this light at all and have played the entire playoffs since they stepped on the floor with La like we belong here and we're ready for this moment so I'm not taking away from how they were prepared but I do think that anyone's first time in the finals thing Daphne. Thomas is the only player that team that played in the finals by the way Happy Birthday Jasmine Thomas. Oh It'd be burden on these finest but yeah so. I thought that there's a lot of what we saw early and then they adjusted for the rest of the game it was you know a Washington was up as many as seventeen points and in in Connecticut fought back within a couple of possessions towards the end of the fourth quarter so that's what we want right and we wanna see two teams really battling it out and so I thought gay one. We saw experience really come into play. I think we saw a battle tested. Washington mystics team now when we look at what actually happened is far as the strategy and back and forth Kurt Miller and my Tibo two coaches so we're going to see a chess match of changes with matchups and schemes and who's who are you. GonNa let shooting who you're not. I mean Cory Williams for example a player that is well well known for her long to ball in her mid range. Gabe bet but that long to was her shy. I mean she was crazy. From three point land that might have been our best S. three point shooting game which he even said after after the presser in her career so she brings that aspect you needed someone to stretch the floor because strictly was struggling from long range right and credit the mystics who you know use a smaller guard on strictly in like a Christie tolliver guard her to kind of just get inner. Take away wear space even though toddlers big so you know we saw some scheming stuff but but Jasmine Thomas I thought was was not the Jasmine..

But you're gonna wanna stay tuned because we've got a lot to discuss during this show. And yes, I did say this is your host China Robinson, probably if I did not it's me though, I do have a little cold or some kind of allergies or whatever, but I'm joined by my very eager co host, who seems to have a lot on her mind. None other than to time WNBA champion death Peters. I mean, Debbie just gonna call out on Twitter like you got a lot on. You got things off your chest. You can't sleep like what's up? I mean yeah, we'll come in EMMY. Last week about my Acis. So this week is pay back. Oh, it is okay. See the standings. Listen, let me just say this. We're about eight games in donate didn't keep you from getting on me. So this. All right. Well time for damned shine today. She's decided it's tougher to get some shy. Also on the show as per usual are fantastic in fabulous producer, Torika foster Bradsby, y'all have a good summer so far. Can I just say that I love California? I was out there for a wedding, and I might be like trying to move my life to the west coast, that would be nice let China eight leaving Atlanta. I'm just saying just saying it's cold is Chicago is probably cold in Bristol beautiful in Bristow. It's beautiful. But it rained yesterday was like seventy five. Anytime shy has clearly been postponed. We have not been getting no good weather to get together because I'm trying to make a trip up there. By the way, I'm trying to enjoy my summer and they are really killing the whole vibe. They are killing the whole vibe. So we got a lot to talk about the show in actually now that you say that we wanted to talk to you last week about a little movement, that you have going on these orange t shirts that me into Rica don't have so the show as well. But I'll just turn it over to Torika and we'll bounce into the first quarter. I quarter. All right. Ladies will likely China mentioned. We're actually nine games into the season or seven dependent on which team he play for. And I think he's got a time for us to start talking about, like, which teams are finding their groove in which ones aren't on the contrary. There are a couple teams I can't seem to find anything a groove of basket, a win LA nothing. So we're gonna take this super shy, especially considering, I'll pick them laughing. Big man. Big man. Anyway. I think we can open up the show playing a little game of hot or not. So I'm going to give you the team, and then I want you to tell me if you think this team is hot or not, not necessarily like we won a few gangs were on a hot streak. But hot as in like they're gonna groove. And I think they're onto something or nah, they plant with us. Okay. So we'll start off really easy. All right. First team. The Connecticut sun. Okay. They said a franchise record on Sunday with their twelfth straight home game win defeating the storm eighty one to sixty seven Elissa Thomas went off twenty point performance, John Jones she's the Eastern Conference player of the week third time this season. They're sitting at the best record at eight and one, let China hot or scorching hot first of all, you said, let's start off easy because this is one of your teams like I know you picked LA to win. But you think this should be easy. You're trying to influence my decision by betting that into the question. But that's fine. Talk Connecticut's hot Connecticut's hot, right? Like, and let's be real. I, I don't think there's been any doubt in anyone's mind that they were going to be a great team now. Yes, with the whole Chennai to LA situation..

We apologize that we are a little bit late getting this to you. We had some technical issues with recording this region, but we're here, and we hope that you will get a little bit of taste of what to expect from the Portland region for what we have a head. Now in case you did not hear about the teams in the Portland region. Quite yet. There's week sixteen. Pod includes Mississippi State, Arizona state, South Dakota state in Oregon and to get us kicked off the big story in the Portland region. Is that Sabrina UNESCO recorded her second triple double in the NCAA tournament in her career eighteenth overall eighth of this season? She is the undisputed triple double Queen because she owns the record both in season as well. As a career. We talked to Sabrina UNESCO. Dave Pasch, and I my partner in this region after they advanced to the Sweet Sixteen keeping in mind. The first round they'd be Portland state second round, they'd beat Indiana. And we'll let you hear from Sabrina what she had to say. I ball on the wind, but China now, we're wondering did you miss that last one on purpose? Are you gonna go? So I was like let me just kinda out a little bit more rotation on this shot. So I can get it back. Well, you know, what a lot of people try to do that. And we're not successful for the fact that you even did that is the in itself boy Donnelly performance, and you know, I asked you earlier today about your shooting versus you're passing because you didn't shoot it. Well, what what as? Live in in your first round game. But what was your mindset tonight? I mean, I just didn't want to go home. And I knew this was going to be our last time on this home court this year. And I wanted to go out and give it everything. I got my teammates got me the ball on the right time, and they shot the ball too. So it was overall great game up for offensively. There's been some discussion. And I'm sure you're not going to touch on it. But this could be your last game and Eugene, and you're still the year left availability. What did it mean to go out if it's the last game forever? The last game this season with the triple double here in the ago. I mean, it's awesome. I love how they support me. And then they get really loud cheer when I get close. And so it's been also playing in front of such a great crowd the atmosphere. Here was awesome today. I didn't think many people would come because the men play around the same time. But so I love you, gene. So happy for everyone that came out and supported us you to the Sweet Sixteen again, she have every year your career, but your junior this year, so different level of expectation. How is your team handled that knowing that, you know, there's an expectation for you to get to the final four? I mean, we've all been in this position before and a lot of us have in the ones that have in are just learning from us. And I think our core group that's been in that elite eight bubble knows that we don't we don't want that we want to get further. And so we're just using that as as motivation to keep going. Well, congratulations on the win. You guys are looking forward. You talked about the crowd tonight. I'm sure it'll be a great crowd of the motive Senate. Congratulations. So in the beginning of that conversation, we were talking to Sabrina about her triple double in that second round game against Indiana. And she finished with twenty nine points, ten rebounds, twelve assists. But basically told day passion myself there that she missed her final rebound shot. She shot the basketball got her own rebound for her tenth rebounds, a complete that triple double. And we all know it's hard to miss a shot. I mean, I played basketball. It you have those moments where your code says. Okay. Miss this free throw because you're doing a rebounding drill or something. It's hard to miss his shot. It's definitely hard to miss..

"W women's basketball podcast around the rim. I am your host. Let's China Robinson joined by my theater, tastic and fabulous producer to Rica foster Bradsby, and we're really sorry that we did not get to visit with you last week. There was a lot of Super Bowl drama building up here in Atlanta, which made it difficult for me to get to the studio. But also, I think that. We were kind of rebelling against the whole patriots movement. Low key not you think the Rica and live here, y'all man. Somebody comes save me from new there live in Connecticut. This is still considered New England. So the amount of patriots fans that I am. So rounded by its very numbing. Oh, goodness. Well, the patient one I'm happy that we're back to women's basketball. And there was not a lot of traffic in Atlanta. I made it through the weekend with my best friend and my cousin in town. We had a very nice time. So yeah, we missed some time.

"Episode of your women's basketball, podcast, ESPN w women's basketball podcast around the rim. Just a little bit of a tweak. We're gonna start taping our shows on Tuesday post big Monday because we want to be able to highlight the women's games they're happening on Monday. So we will be recording on Tuesday, which means you probably to podcast Wednesday morning as we look ahead to Thursdays and Fridays and Saturdays and Sundays. But anyway, it's a crazy time right now. I think I say that so often when we're coming on air. I am your host China Robinson joined by my fantastic in fabulous producer Rica, foster Bradsby and to Rica. I don't even know where to start because every time I turn around the the polls in the rankings and women's basketball are taking shift. We had a very big game on Thursday between Louisville Notre Dame one to match up and Notre Dame finds themselves. Not only the winner of that game, which is huge within the ACC is from a conference standpoint. But number one of the polls distal a quick recap of that game. It was great mean called by our final four crew of Rebecca Lobo. Adam mean care Lawson and Holly Rowe and what stands out to me about that game. Couple things as there is ridiculous. Redick use. But so is our rega- Google ga. You gotta pick one to Rica. Don't put me in this position. Because there's no way you can you know when you started that game from the beginning. I was like oh guy Asia is about to go off in this game. I see it happening, and maybe I should have picked Louisville. And then that clutch, gene happened. The clutching does happen. It's a real old time for her. I mean, come on. I mean, she's ridiculous. Anyway, she made the big plays down the stretch the big shots at least on a night. That was just not the smoothest Notre Dame offense. We're used to seeing in credit Louisville in for everyone who was on Twitter of saying oh these fouls. Ridiculous. You must not remember the biggies like that's what Louisville does not saying that they file, but they are physical team. Right. Like, that's that's always been a staple. Jeff walls teams like they are going to mix it up defensively they have. You know, one of the best defensive pedigrees in my opinion of some of the top teams in the country under death walls. And so it didn't surprise me that it was ugly. I think that's what Louisville wanted. I just felt like in the waning moments. There was no answer for re KOMO shots. I thought that there were a couple of tough shots down the stretch by Carter and Dir that didn't help Louisville's offense as they tried to respond. A lot of trouble for a foul. Trouble for the cardinals. Which obviously was a problem. Evans dunham. There were players at four fouls. But at the end of the day Google took over, but there's just so much gleaned for that. It'd be Jackie young had to take over the point guard spot. Marina may be has not been consistently at her best. And we know she started the season with an injury. So that has something to do with it just shepherd wasn't herself. You know, even though she had a big night on the glass, but I'll tell you this. I'll take Louisville Notre Dame anytime I and a matter of fact, I'll take them against any of the other top teams. I mean, they're just fun to watch the well coached teams fun to watch. I thought the night was was fantastic. I would agree. And then if you thought that it ended on Thursday night it continued because this weekend was seriously upset city. Everybody could get it this weekend. That was going to be one of my other points in the introduction. Especially in the SEC. Tennessee has now lost three games in a row for the first time in thirty three years. Okay. This weekend. They took it L to Georgia. And then omiss one at Kentucky number sixteen. I called that game. Coachie? Oh, we've had this show before got a huge win her first year the SEC ole miss had been getting like trampled in their first few games the league. And then they beat Kentucky Kentucky..

"We a new episode of around the rim. No, it is not your host la- China Robinson. But instead, it's the for do, sir. To Rica foster Bradsby, I'm filling in for a little bit Ryan and sell though, but don't fret you will hear from the China later on in the show because we've got a great show lined up for you guys. I know we say that every week that we have a great show. And I like to think that we're honest when we say every week that we have a great show, but we do have a great show this week too. So you can just go ahead and add this to the list of great shows that you've listened to from us here at around the rim. Joining us this week. We've got some really special guests from a can't miss match up. That's going to be happening on Tuesday on ESPN two. I'm so the number four Mississippi State BULLDOGS will be taking on the number seven Oregon ducks in we've got representatives from each team on today's. Show. So you definitely want to listen to this. If you are planning to watch that match. Oh, but even if you aren't you still should listen to this podcast because these women are just amazing, and they have amazing stories, and we are excited to be a catalyst in being able to help them to tell those stories so we're going to hear from tier mccowan, and we're going to hear from big Schaefer the BULLDOGS right NOW, OUR NUMBER one in the SEC ten and overall they're playing really well, you're Howard. She looks amazing one of the most coveted transfers in the off season issues. Brought so much talent to this team that was already talented, but Pierra ABC just been so impressed with her. And I think everyone else has been too. I mean, according to a recent survey of general managers from the WNBA, and this comes from friend of the show Doug Feinberg who published his article in the Associated Press a she's the potential number one pick right now. I mean GM's are looking at her as the person. To really help refine their teams on a professional level in. She does kind of talk about that a little bit as far as her future in basketball with our conversation with the China, she came to visit around the rim during women's basketball media day, and we want to share that interview with you. We also talked about her toughness in her teens toughness, and what that really really means. I I know I already thought of Mississippi State as a tough team, and so did the China, but Thira gives us some insight on what that truly means for them. And what that means coming so close to an NCWA championship. Remember this team is went to back to back. Final fours and back to back championships losing to South Carolina in two thousand seventeen and then losing again this past season to Notre Dame in two thousand eighteen so she tells us undoubtedly why going all the way is the gopher this season. And we're also going to hear from coach Schafer who explains why his teams are not only so academically talented but discipline and physical in how he's. Able to bring those characteristics out of his players. Why Mississippi State is such a competitive team that garner such a competitive nature? He gives us all those little tidbits that we kind of think that we know. But he he firms them for us. So you're really going to enjoy this conversation between he and the China. But before we get to Mississippi State. You're going to hear a conversation between the China and organs Sabrina UNESCO. Now, the ducks were upset last week by my Michigan state Spartans. I'm still excited about that. But it's the team's only loss, and it dropped them from number three in the coaches poll and the AP polls to number seven last week. If you tuned into the show, we had special guests ESPN w writer, Michelle voelpel and her China had a conversation about how the ducks would be able to bounce back after such an upset. And if you missed it we're gonna play a little bit for you right now. What does this loss by Oregon signal to you? If anything are you concerned with the understanding that everyone expects Oregon to make it to the final four this year period. Are you concerned? What was it was a tough? It was a challenging week off the court for Oregon, obviously because of the NCAA sanctions that were announced for the program..

Our second podcast of the week. It is around the rim. Your ESPN w women's basketball podcast. I'm your host China Robinson joined by my fabulous producer to Rica foster Bradsby, and we are dropping podcast on a Friday pod. Going up on a frown fries. Yes. Because we got a phone call in opportunity to be an exclusive interview after a pretty major hiring the WNBA shout out to ally. Horowitz, who is the PR PR Representative that makes that what you would call it PR. That's what you would call it. Yeah. Right now, the -secutive enough, but ally gave us an opportunity to talk to the newly named head coach of the LA sparks drum roll, please. Case you haven't heard Derek Fisher five-time NBA champ. Their Fisher is the new head coach of the LA sparks if you haven't been paying attention. Former Elliott sparks head coach, Brian Adler resigned as of November thirtieth and a comprehensive search per the release when Brian resigned started immediately, but that search didn't last very long because on December fifth. Derek Fisher was hired. And there has been a lot of conversation, obviously celebration wherever you have someone who has achieved at level of basketball that Derek Fisher has changed at to be a part of the WNBA to be a part of the sparks organization, which is very obviously close to Lakers, which you know, his contributions on that side as well. So a lot of excitement a lot of criticism is well some rumblings. There's. A bit of coverage out here right now. I mean, you can follow any of the great people that cover women's basketball. Whether it's Michelle voelpel or how're Meg dole. Or Rachel Gallaghen. Had a really interesting article asking some questions and actually continued to use the quote bet on women who he was interesting, but she had some questions about in concerns about the hiring of Derek Fisher who has never coached women's basketball, never coached, the WNBA assistant or at any at any point. He did have a stint with the Knicks. He was their head coach from two thousand fourteen to twenty sixteen record of forty ninety six. So the question, I think has been at least the one I've heard because been why not maybe hire a woman and you hear that. Because there are so few opportunities for women and this is a women's league. There are a lot of former WNBA players that are coaching. So that's a question. We've heard. Why not hire someone who has given to the women's game at some level? When you look at the Brian advocates of the world or the Kurt Miller's, or you know, a lot of the men we see in the WNBA head coach is now Fred Williams who's not with the team. But these been have given their lives to growing women's basketball in particular. And basically the question is just what WNBA player would ever get an NBA head coaching job without that experience. Agreed. So we're just here people to educate. That's what's Rican doing in. We want to have these conversations, and we wanna talk and listen. And so if you have any thoughts, please remember you can reach us at around the rim pod on Twitter or around the rim podcast at g mail dot com with your thoughts, but we are here to talk to Derek Fisher..

"It's your women's basketball podcast ESPN w women's basketball podcast around the rim on your host China Robinson, joined by my fabulous and fantastic producer to Rica foster brass be, and we know that Rica loves the Connecticut sun, which probably means she loves the Connecticut huskies. So she's happy today. I am appalled at you. Oh, really is that inaccurate? Because you should know that I am a Michigan state Spartans fan. Oh, I know you're Michigan state fan. But that does not mean that you don't take those Connecticut teams, don't even try. See I am. I almost shamed. No, don't even y'all. Don't listen to her. But there was a big game this weekend Sunday, four o'clock eastern time. The best rivalry in women's college basketball, Notre Dame and uconn and Notre Dame comes in number one in the country coming off of their national championship last year, which was just magical Yukon sorry, that's AT and T. In a little bit of what you may call rebuilding mode, having loss Kia nurse. Gabby williams. You know, some some big parts of what they do their leadership. But it was all Connecticut huskies and at times, they even made it look easy in on the show just to give you a little bit of rundown. We're going to bring in the ESPN analyst basketball analyst, Brooke Weisbrod, Weiss Brody. To give us her thoughts because she was actually in south bend for the big match up. And also we have some interviews that we did with Muffin McGraw and Ourika Goumba walleye that are now being released and you'll want to hear those Mufit. We talked a lot about women. Honestly, you know, Mufid is one of those women in a leadership position who she gets. She gets a tough rep because she serious, and she is not necessarily warm and fuzzy, and you know, what they say about women when they're focused and sometimes not as warm and inviting so we're going to get into that conversation. Yeah, we're dipping into that. And also just in what she does for women as a leader the women that we leave her program are fantastic. And they use their voices they make their Mark in the world in various spaces. So we've got Muffin and then, of course, our Rica who one of the juiciest things we talk about his marina may bre- their best friends. So we get into that. But anyway, this is not about the Irish at this moment because it was all about Yukon. And it wasn't particu. After about Kristen Williams. Let me tell you about this lefty freshman twenty eight points eleven for sixteen from the field came in just nasty. She has an arsenal of moves that you're just like, okay. Can't do anything with that high going to guard that mid range get to the rim outside shot. Like, what do you want? She serving it up and came in on phase, not even concerned about the environment. Fact on the broadcast was are outstanding final four crew of Adam Amine care Lawson, Rebecca Lobo, Holly. Rowe and there was discussion about is the last time a freshman did this in this matchup and this big rivalry game. Here is our Holly. Rowe with Kristen Williams. The biggest star after the game. Kristen this is your first big college in your life. The game. You take it into the basket heart. Why are you so unfazed by this atmosphere today? My teammates and my coaching staff. Have amazing confidence in me. And that really hurts me to do what I do. So. Yeah. It's really. How many points you score today? I had no idea. Okay. What was the new career high twenty eight? That is pretty good. What does it mean to you to be so confident feel so comfortable against a really good team like Notre Dame and early in your career? Gene plan in this game..

"I am your host China Robinson joined by my fantastic producer to Rekha foster Bradsby, and we're going to jump into a very exciting episode. I think we've been mentioning in the intro of every podcast. You're hearing right now that these recordings place during women's college basketball national media day at ESPN on Bristol campus, which Rican I actually got to be in the same place, which was nice. Can you imagine? I can you believe this even though like she just does other stuff while I'm talking. So I kept trying to look at her. And she's on her phone, whatever she doesn't care. Who'd what at least we have our energy that we can exchange in that space. So we talked to the top coaches and players in the country. And I'm excited about this particular podcast because Gino Auriemma came on the show, and we didn't really talk a ton about Yukon huskies of this year. I mean, yeah. Most people would think we were going to do a college basketball preview. But there was just so much going on on this particular day because the WNBA players association was in the process of making their decision about whether or not they were going to opt out of the collective bargaining agreement which they ultimately did. So I was able to get genus thoughts on it. And he had some very interesting thoughts on the WNBA on this conversation about equal pay not really equal pay in. We actually get into some of that as well. But just pay equity in the WNBA some of the issues they're facing. We also talked about growing fans in. Whether or not college basketball fans in WNBA fans are one of the same or could be one of the thing or should be one of the same. So we jump into that a little bit. Which there was an interesting story that GIO tells about the Connecticut sun fans, booing former Yukon huskies, which I didn't realize that took place, but very very cool stories from him in thoughts on the WNBA in general. You know, what I thought about when he said that what I thought about Diana to Rosie when she played when they when the Phoenix mercury play Connecticut just this past playoffs. And how there were so many people that were still in the crowd cheering her booing her at the same time..

"I am your host China Robinson joined by my fabulous producer to Rica foster brass the and yes, we do know that the WNBA playoffs are happening and there's so much action. We will dedicate a podcast to that that should hit your inbox soon, hopefully in the next week or so. But right now, a project that's Rican I had been working on for a couple of weeks that we are excited to bring to our fans. One thing that we talked about doing one of our goals and objectives for this podcast. This summer was to start to integrate all levels of women's basketball together. Coming into this year, we were kind of divided. It was like, oh, this is WNBA season. No. Now it's called season, but you know, we realized that for women's basketball to be at its strongest. All levels have to be connected college WNBA. We hope to incorporate more more FIBA and overseas when the WNBA women go there, but also high school girls, basketball, and a you. Now I'll be the first to admit that this was an area of growth for me. I cover college basketball WNBA, but I am not the expert when it comes to girls in grassroots level, high school, a new basketball. So talking to parents, college coaches, a coach event, operators aspect, cetera. I go to a chance. I obviously keep an eye on, but it's a space where of lying. And that's why this episode is so special to us. Because number one, it includes Steph, curry, who I have always been a fan of staff. You went to Davidson, which was not too far from Wake Forest college. I, I went to love and underdog, you know, we are very smaller and some of our beliefs off the. Core, but he's always resonated with me in terms of how he moves out the person and for us to get involved girls basketball to the level which he has this summer and do something very ground. Ry is a special place for us to into this. So just to give you a little background, we are going to hear from Steph curry a little bit later. But what this podcast is about is about stuff Curry's elect thirty camp. So people may or may not know that the NBA players who are often the summer often hold their own select camps. There usually sponsored by apparel company, but they invite the top high school boys players, the top college, men's basketball players.

Congratulations to Courtney Vander Slough who notched the seven triple double and WNBA history on the Kogyo sky point guard. If you haven't seen her. Is a magician with the basketball going back to her days in Gonzaga playing for Kelly graves, and they're only been six triple doubles before Courtney Vander sloop. So we want to send her some love. That's that's a huge accomplishment in the Courtney's underappreciated. Again, there's that super set. The record for games played the WPA with five hundred to Diana kind of going back and forth, like setting all kinds of milestones being how many records have we saved the sheer Rebecca Brunson, capturing rebound record goals made Diane a superb is now the all time leading scorer for for the Seattle storm in their history. And that's that's special about five hundred. A career games play. Does that sue has been in Seattle her entire career. She's a two-time champion. Number one draft pick from from Connecticut, like she's done everything. She is like she's basketball goals period. In every sense of the word. But the part that I take from this Torika is how well she's taking care of herself. I think she's what thirty six thirty seven years old right now yet if she looked like she can play for another five years, I don't see her stopping at any point in that says a lot considering that we've often said early in the WNBA years..
