Where WERE the ladies?
This is the final Big East Tournament as we know it. The last time the original Big East will be infiltrating the Garden with "Hoya Saxa" or "Let's Go Orange". Women should be a part of it.
I understand that the Big Monday broadcast team is on the larger side. Sean McDonough, Bill Raftery and Jay Bilas provide phenomenal analysis and have incredible chemistry. Andy Katz asks professional and relevant questions each and every time on the sideline. Was there really no room for a woman to be a part of this historic event?
I understand that different schedules permit different reporters to cover different games, but was there really no way that a woman was able to get to New York? I find that hard to believe.
Five days after International Women's Day, and this article by Sarah Spain, I don't understand why there is no female representation on this broadcast. Whether it be in studio, broadcast booth or on the sidelines, women add another dimension to any broadcast and thwart the "Old-Boys Network" mentality that has frequently been associated with sports. More specifically, men's college basketball.
Where were the ladies, Mr. Williams? Right here. Louder than ever.
