The college season is now officially over.
Congratulations to the UConn Huskies, who won the National Championship Tuesday night by defeating Louisville, 76-54, and completed the season with a perfect record of 39-0. It's an astonishing accomplishment!
And with the end of the college season, the BasketCases' focus now officially shifts to the WNBA. Immediately below this post is our analysis, from the Mystics' perspective, of this Thursday's WNBA draft. In recent days, Atlanta GM Marynell Meadors has suggested she might use her overall #1 pick in that draft on a guard. If, as some now think she will, she selects Renee Montgomery -- who just led the Huskies to that perfect season -- the Mystics will have everyone on their wish list left on the board -- McCoughtry, Coleman, and C. Paris -- at the positions needing the most attention.
It's going to be a nailbiter on Thursday. The good news is that we can't really lose among that group!
