Y’all know how much I love my Houston hoopster homegirl Brittney Griner and her Baylor Lady Bear teammates who completed an unbeaten 40-0 run to a NCAA women’s basketball title and made me look like a hoops genius in terms of picking my NCAA women’s March Madness bracket..
They got to visit the White House and President Obama yesterday and present the POTUS with a Baylor jersey and autographed basketball.
“I could not be prouder of this team,” President Obama said during this event. ”As the father of two
daughters who are tall and beautiful just like them, it is great to have
role models who can show that women can be strong and athletic and
competitive, but also play as a team.”
And this Lady Bear team had a dominating and record setting season on the way to beating the Skylar Diggins led Notre Dame Fighting Irish for the championship. They also kept the NCAA women’s championship trophy in the Lone Star State for the second consecutive season.
Can they repeat? We’ll see starting in November.
