While the NCAA men Final Four teams await their trial by fire set for Saturday, the women are preparing for Sunday games that feature two unbeaten squads, along with two traditional women’s powerhouses.

The first game on Sunday will see unbeaten Connecticut against the Stanford Cardinal while the late game has undefeated Notre Dame against Maryland. UConn took care of 3 seed Texas A&M 69-54 to earn the trip to Nashville while Stanford handled North Carolina 74-65. The two teams played early in the season with UConn winning handily 76-57. The Lady Huskies will be making their 7th trip to the Final Four in a row. They’ll be going for their 9th national title while Stanford has won it all twice.

In 2010, Stanford ended UConn’s 90 game winning streak with a 71-59 victory. Their All-American, Chiney Ogwumike was a freshman on that squad and after suffering some health set-backs during the year, is now fit and in fighting trim. UConn will have all they can handle trying to contain Ogwumike who is expected to be the number one choice in the WNBA draft.

Now that President Obama has gotten the (basket?)ball rolling in terms of fixing both income inequality and infantry inequality, I think that it's time that he turn his attention to the "Title IX" plantation of sports inequality, women's sports. If he would only, Rosa Parks like, put on his high-heeled sneakers and find that pernicious piece of political legislation unconstitutional, as he has done in several other situations, both our womenfolk and his feminists would be soon freed from the segregated back of the sports bus to which them have been both legislatively and judicially condemned. Forcing them to compete against only second rate competitors is not what this country needs if it is to reach its Progressive pinnacle. All sportspersons are equal and gender segregation reinforces those tired stereotypes that men are somehow physically superior to those who hold up half the sky. And think about all the economic savings from schools having but one team in each sport. Money that could put to much better use in fields like "queer" or other sexual dysfunction studies. And just think of the communal showers, men, women, almost men, almost women all together as God or someone made them. Now that would be progressively progressing Progressivism, if you ask me.

Alternatively, I could drag out some of my kinescopes of 1950's men basketball and get a very similar experience.
