If you missed the game on Wednesday night at the Ted, then you missed a game between two programs that have redefined women’s college basketball.
We’re talking Louisiana Tech and Old Dominion. The two have combined for more than 2,000 wins and most of all, helped pave the road to a women’s national championship game every year.
“This is special,” ODU Coach Karen Barefoot said. “These are the two winningest programs in college basketball and we talked about that as a team. We talked about the 1979 championship game that Louisiana Tech won. This is a special night.”
Former Louisiana Tech player and now current coach, Teresa Witherspoon, agrees. “It was amazing competition, amazing athletes, the atmosphere was amazing. You lived for these games, you lived for the challenge. We would circle the dates when we met each other on the floor.”
