Women's Hoops

The latest news and analysis on college and pro women's basketball.

Couch potato alert!

A reader in Kentucky gives daily thanks for the Web. Without it, he writes, he would have no clue what’s going on in the WNBA.
That’s a crying shame.
On one hand, I understand the league’s struggle for television coverage.
ESPN/ABC aren’t the most agreeable partners and need ratings to attract advertisers to make money. They sneak a few broadcasts underneath their NBA deal and the ESPN2 Tuesday night lineup is a treat.
But remember when the league had a WNBA Pass? They say not enough of us signed on, so it was axed. Now, only New York has consistent coverage through Madison Square Garden’s own broadcast.
The Storm will put this week’s final two home games on the tube via FSN.
Oregon State women’s basketball coach LaVonda Wagner will provide the color analyst alongside play-by-play broadcaster Cara Capuano. (FYI: Sonics guard Damien Wilkens didn’t make the cut; viewers thought he was awful and had to be set up too much by Capuano.)
While I’m happy about the addition of games, it’s still whacky. My new friend in Kentucky wouldn’t be able to see the game anyway and it does help another reader in Bellingham, who usually can’t make it to KeyArena, but won’t the majority of the people interested in the game be at the arena?
Maybe I’m crazy, but I’d think fans would typically like to see away games
