Two native Americans (Oregon, Umatillo), star Shoni Schimmel and "sixth-man" Jude, are playing in the Women's NCAA Finals, leading Louisville against UConn, right now!

They have been a cinderella story, beating the odds throughout the tournament.

I'm a UConn fan, but I love watching these girls.

ESPN.

Louisville scored first. 3 pointer.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    What's the point of letting neoliberals into the tent when neoliberalism is burning down the campground?
    Since elections will never change the ownership of government, why does our strategy rely entirely upon them?

    Shoni had 9, Jude had 7.

    I think they may be back. I like them and their coach. This experience, which they never even expected or were expected to have, may just give them the extra motivation they'll need to get back.
