    What play did Tuesday's NCAA women's basketball championship game receive in papers in your area?

    The metropolitan daily here staffed it and began the story on the front page of its sports section. The county's leading suburban newspaper ran an Associated Press story on the eighth and final page of its section.
     
  2. Bottom right of the front page, no picture, jumped inside.

    Front and center on B1 with dominant art.

    Why? As discussed elsewhere, we have no local art for the foreseeable future.

    Started on the sports cover, above the fold with art. Jumped to the inside.

    It was our centerpiece, but that shouldn't be surprising given our location. The draft was the centerpiece in today's section.

    Played it dominant, like the men's tournament.

    Played it third on a four-story front page (behind two local stories) with most of the picture above the fold since it was my strongest art, and the story jumping inside after about eight inches. It was that or the Tigers, which are both depressing and likely to be on the front page another 70 times in the next six months. Wanted to at least have a good defense if and when the angry phone calls came in.

    Same here. SEC country.

    We're not SEC country but we still played it as our centerpiece, mostly in the absence of any non-shitty local stuff.
