One correction: Syracuse "could" have accomodated UConn. In fact, they have a home game tonight that they scheduled well after UConn had to turn to Colgate. The operative phrase is that Syracuse was afraid to play UConn.

As for SNY, they televise all UConn games that arent' picked up by ESPN. I don't think Colgate gets any money for it, but as you say a lot of money was made from ticket sales. The best seats actually sold for $50.

Actually I am reversing my opinion. Yes we are getting
creamed, but there is a semblemce of a well coached
team with our ladies. We are seriously out manned, or
out womaned, if you will, but making the occasional
good shot and some pretty good passing, even if much
of it is disrupted. Probably fun to play in a packed
house, even if many are UConn fans. There are plenty
of good teams that will lose to this UConn team by 50
or more.
