I know we are right in the middle of the NCAA final four and basketball as a whole has many people’s attention. One of the interesting topics has been the outstanding play of the Women’s collegiate basketball team: the University of Connecticut or the UConn Huskies. With all the talk going on good or bad, one thing is sure forgotten, revolution!
Yes, I mean revolution in a good way. These ladies and their coach are in the midst of a revolution, a game-changer for modern day terminology, simply because they are damn good! They are so good that the one thing that stands out is that they are about to possibly win 4 titles in 4 years. Basically, the freshman who won 4 years ago are the same athletes who are now seniors who are about to win again. (Please forgive me for giving the title already.) The are on a 73 game win streak. They have an NCAA tournament 22 game winning streak. When the final whistle is blown on this season, they will make the obvious case for being the greatest team ever! Winning 122 of 123 games! Unreal!
I have been fortunate to have had my fair share of winning championships as a wheelchair rugby player. We had our critics as well. Now, in regards to the haters, all I can say as an athlete to the UConn opposition is … elevate your game! Find out what they are doing at UConn. Are they training at different times? Are they eating different foods and drinking more water? Yes, they do have talent, but talent has to be coached and they got a great one, like him or not. What is probably forgotten is that they are talented and they work hard as a team. Hard work is what spells automatic success, on and off the court.
In regards to winning, these ladies have already won. They have already won in regards to setting a standard for not only their school and community, but for the whole of college basketball and even sport in general. These ladies and this team, they are the standard! They are the ultimate in team sport. Enjoy it! The revolution may never happen again. At least until next year!
