If it is time for a new basketball season, it is time to break out a Dishin & Swishin Roundtable! Always one of the most popular podcasts, it is gathering of some of the best minds that are involved in the women’s game. On preview roundtables I have had players, coaches, print and Web journalists, and broadcasters. This week I have gathered three new members, and one returnee, media members from across the country, to discuss the 2011-12 NCAA women’s basketball season.

The panelists are:

· Debbie Antonelli, ESPN and Fox broadcaster, co-host of the original women’s basketball podcast, Shootaround, with Beth (Mowins) and Debbie

· Michelle Smith, espnW columnist and a well-respected journalist in women’s basketball media circles

· John Altavilla, writer and blogger for the Hartford Courant

· Abby Waner, ESPN broadcaster

So, if you would like to be the smartest person in your circle of basketball fans on a wide variety of topics, you should listen to what the panelists have to say on topics such as:

· The best teams and best players, can anyone stop Baylor and Brittney Griner?

· The Irish is an experienced team led by Skylar Diggins but is Notre Dame ready to take the next step and win the title?

· Tennessee, is this the year?

· Life after the departure of stars Maya Moore, Kayla Pederson, Jeanette Pohlen and Danielle Adams for UConn, Stanford and A&M.

· What are the most interesting and compelling stories this season?

· Who are some of the players that are worth following that you may not be aware of?

· Is Elena Delle Donne the best player in the country?

And more!

I hope you enjoy this week’s Podcast. Don’t forget you can subscribe to Dishin & Swishin’s podcasts on itunes, and follow on twitter @DishNSwish.

  • No national champion with PG as top scorer? What would you call Diana Taurasi after Sue Bird left? While it was said that Conlon was the PG, Diana ran most of the plays, especially at crunch time. I think that this statement is therefore wrong.

  • With all WBB fans my heart is heavy for the loss of the two coaches at OSU and the Cowgirls, so it was nice to listen to you all taped before the crash. Always love the round tables especially when Michelle Smith is in the mix. She was right on about Nneka on Sunday-the big sister was jaw dropping. I didn't realize she had that much room for her game to improve. Nneka seems to have a fiercer attitude on the floor, and I put my money on her for best player in the nation (or her class if Brittany can sink a hook shot consistently). By the way the caption on the photo is incorrect. Much to my dismay Stanford didn't play Notre Dame in the Final Four. Instead, to get us ready for Monday night, how about a picture of Stanford breaking the streak? I am surprised there are so many big games this weekend so early in the season. Here we go!

  • C'mon Debbie. That incident you're mentioning with Prahalis happened 2 tournaments ago. She didn't blow up last year in the Big Ten tournament or the big game against Tennessee where they were leading at the half. All she does is lead the Big Ten in assists every year and is top 3 in the entire country in assists. Yeah, HUGE surprise she'd be up for an award. And John has no clue what he's talking about. He's so wrapped up in his UConn, he doesn't know anything about the Big Ten.
