    Mixed Results at Big East Championships

    Don’t let the numbers fool you. Despite mixed results at last weekend’s Big East Championship meet in New York City, the Friars are not a team to write off.

    Perhaps the best yardstick for judging a college women’s basketball team is not how they win, but how they respond to a loss. That was the yardstick at play when the Friars took on South Florida in Tampa on Tuesday, Feb. 23, after losing to Connecticut just two days earlier.
