For the past few weeks, the Dishin & Swishin podcast brought you some of the best journalists and former players breaking down each round of the NCAA women’s basketball tournament.
We took a different approach to the Finals, one I know you are going to enjoy. What did WNBA coaches think of the Baylor-Notre Dame match up?
On today’s podcast, Seattle Storm head coach Brian Agler, Tulsa Shock head coach Gary Kloppenburg, and Chicago Sky assistant coach Jeff House will look at the two teams, their seasons and the game itself.
The conversation included defending and attacking Brittney Griner; the performances of Odyssey Sims and Skylar Diggins; how to combat a physically dominant team like Baylor; the approach each team took to defending the other; and the difficulty of winning when the expectations are high when you have the best player and when you have a physically dominating player. There is even a (small) glance at the refereeing (hey, they have to work with these refs!).
Three of the best minds in women’s basketball share their thoughts and insights from when they watched not only this game, but Baylor, Notre Dame and some of their opponents over the season.
As we bring closure to the NCAA season and get ready for the WNBA draft, I can think of no better finale. Enjoy!
