Obligatory joke about WNBA players missing shots just as badly when they're actually trying.   :rimshot

the intentional back court violations was lazy.
they should of found better ways of tanking without it being so obvious.

Both schools should be stripped of their title IX status. Sayin.

That makes more sense to me than the bikini football league.  Also curious as to just how low that rim is.

good for them.

That is embarrassing to try that hard to dodge a team.

Though I have to say what weird system puts the winner of a game against the #1 seed.  Shouldn't the loser get the tougher opponent.

That seems like someone doesn't know how to draw up a bracket.

It kind of happens in all sports.  Let's say that these teams are playing each other, and the winner gets the (5) seed while the loser gets the (6) seed.  The six seed has an easier route to the championship game because they would play the 3rd seed and then presumably the second seed (provided the 2 beats the 7) before having to play the first seed.

The winner has to play the four seed, but then goes on to play the first seed in the second round.  Most playoff systems are designed this way.  So, if you're in the last game of the season and you know you're either a 5 or a 6 seed, you have a perverse incentive to lose.

Not really sure how these specific girls' brackets work out though.

which just seems really convoluted and I get your scenario.  For some reason I was thinking opening matchup and not a down the line thing. 

Sounds like a real pain to get one or two extra games.
