Someone will not lose; someone will not win. In today’s games, you likely got a few lessons in life. Even when you are behind, you can win; there are times you can play well and tough, and still not be victorious. Losing is not an easy pill to swallow. In the end, one must start and finish strong, while seizing the moment when the opportunity presents itself. Ultimately, it’s about living your dream. And if you’re lucky, you’ll cross paths with enough people who truly want to see you succeed how and where you desire; and are sincere in wanting to help accomplish that down the route, in a framework best to your perspective. For players, the faith they have in their coaching staff is most important when the time comes to executing the Xs and Os on the court.

The winners on day 1 included Miami, NC State, Wake Forest, and Boston College. If you love women’s basketball, you likely enjoyed the spirited match-ups.

This mindset reflected all the games. That said, just to divert a little, each occasion of some media coverage gives you a chance to cross people of many persuasions, very similar to tournament play. By far, the best ones are those to whom the game is about a competitive contest, an entertaining experience, and the underlying economic impact; all the while forging new alliances toward a future of achieving the things we can individually be passionate about and proud of.
As you might view the surroundings, technology is impacting more the means and method of coverage. However, technology can not get on the Greensboro Coliseum basketball court, run up and down, shoot the ball, or show emotions of the moments, in real time; reflected by players, coaches, cheerleaders, band members, or half-time performers; nor can it manufacture a spontaneous dialogue with any of us. But, nonetheless, new or improved innovations do facilitate progression aiding us. Wi-Fi is a good illustration; accordingly, when it’s working. In the end, its not just about showing the photos or telling the story; more critically, it’s about sharing the experience. And just remember, I called it, nothing but nets.
