Is Anyone Paying Attention to MTSU's Women's Basketball Team?

They're 14-3 and ranked #21 in the country; they upset then #8 Georgia; in the season opener they came within four points of top-ranked Maryland (no one else has come closer); and they've beaten their last four opponents by an average of 32.25 points. If not for an early slip-up against a very average South Dakota State team, the Blue Raiders might be getting serious attention as a national power. Middle Tennesseans: Keep an eye on the MTSU women. This could be a special season for them.

Speaking of women's basketball, my Evansville Aces, at 12-4 and 4-1 in the Missouri Valley Conference, are also having a nice season.

More than you might think. The Lady Raiders are averaging 3700 in attendance which is up from 600 two years ago.

That South Dakota State team is not as average as you think. They have some decent wins, Southern Cal when they were ranked, at Virginia, at Kansas, at Colorado, and at Alabama. Still it is a game the Lady Raiders should not have lost.

The best thing about the MT women is they are as good in academics as they are at basketball. The two seniors have already graduated and are taking graduate courses.

Those of us not close enough geographically to attend their games follow the games on line:
