Terps Tearful on Exit

As the other Maryland players lined up to shake hands with Louisville, senior star duo Kristi Toliver and Marissa Coleman sat on the bench, overcome by tears. Their college careers and quest for a second NCAA title in their tenure had just come to an end at the hands of the Cardinals, 77-60 defeat. 

Louisville’s Angel McCoughtry, who calls Baltimore home, posted 21 points and 13 boards in the contest and claimed the outstanding player award for the region. For their efforts, Louisville receives the dubious award of being matched up (most likely, game is tonight at 7 p.m.) with far-and-away-favorite UConn in Final Four play on April 5. Good luck with that one…

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: acaciaO@welovedc.com or follow her on twitter.

  1. The Yertle Effect (w/ apologies to Teddy G.)

    “…For Yertlea, the Queen of all Com-Cas-Tond,
    Fell off her high throne and fell Plunk! in the pond!

    And today the great Yertlea, that Marvelous she,
    Is Queen of the Mud.
    That is all she can see.
    And the turtles, of course…all the turtles are free
    As turtles and, maybe, all Mascots should be.”
