    Just kidding.

    But congrats to the alma mater, Illinois State: Final Four of the little girls' tournament!

    Oh, sure. NOW you start this.

    Kidding. Good luck if y'all run into South Florida, who ran past my Bonnies 80-66 this afternoon. Two 6-3 players in the post, including Jessica Lawson, who put up a double-double (14 pts/14 reb). And down the stretch, guard Shantia Grace showed why she's on the Big East All-Conference team. Nice, deep squad.

    Still cool to see 4,133 -- a new Big 4 (SBU/Canisius/Niagara/UB) women's record -- rock the Reilly Center for a team that's been all but ignored until recently, though.

    You are a sick, sick bastard, CI. I'm not even paying attention to the WNIT.

    I did when women from our area were in the tourney. When they went out, so did we.

    We were swimming in space on Saturday night, so I volunteered to fashion a small quarterfinal preview with information from ISU's Web site; I got quotes from archived radio interviews done after the previous game, giving attribution, of course.

    Yes, I am sick.

    Inarguable among the sane.

    It just doesn't seem right that there isn't a WCBI or a WCIT.

    On second thought ...

    Fully engorged on CIT goodness, he was.

    Hey, I saw a 75-foot bank shot win a game at the buzzer. I will make no apologies for attending said games. However, I'm not proud to be in the CIT, but it is what it is: a mediocre tournament made of mediocre mid-major teams. How many redundancies are in that statement?

    Still am. One more to go before we hoist Lord CIT's Cup ... oh how I hope it's a 6-inch trophy with a dude on top with a basketball in his hand. You know, like the ones they give kids at those hoop camps.
