Women's hoops season ends in the Final Four

Original post made on Apr 6, 2009

For the next few days it may be hard for senior Jillian Harmon and her Stanford teammates to recognize their accomplishments this season as the pain of Sunday night's 83-64 loss to top-ranked Connecticut lingers. There's reason to smile though. "It's been a great four years," Harmon said. "I couldn't have asked more. To have it come to an end is a bit surreal. I was balling my eyes out in the locker room not because we lost the game but because I can't play with these ladies again. But I know they'll come back next year and hopefully be at the Final Four and hopefully I'll be here to watch."

- the athlete gap was obvious. Neka and Pederson couldn't keep up with Uconn. They got double figures but only in garbage time, after the team was down 30. Harmon pretty much no-showed and Pohlen played way below par too.

asu and cal gave uconn a better game

Stanford can win the weak pac 10 again but can't win it all until they find more athletes who can compete v big east and SEc schools
