Women's tournament: Dayton Region glance

Dayton region

The Favorite: Connecticut. The top seed overall is going for history and loaded with talent, beginning with Jr. F Maya Moore and Sr. C Tina Charles.

Other contenders: Ohio State (30-4), which won the Big Ten tournament title for a second straight year and is led by Jr. C Jantel Lavender (56 career double doubles); Florida State (26-5), the top 3-point shooting team in the ACC (38.8 percent) with Sr. F Jacinta Monroe back healthy; and St. John's (24-6), which held UConn to 39.1 percent in a hard-fought 66-52 loss in Storrs in mid February.

Best player: No offense to UConn's tandem, but Middle Tennessee Sr. F Alysha Clark, left, averages a nation's best 28.7 ppg. That included scoring 132 points in three Sun Belt Conference tournament wins.

Dream matchup: At the risk of coming off as parochial, you have to like the possibility of FSU and its speedy guards facing the Huskies (33-0), whose guard play can be a bit erratic.

  3. Fennelly: What's not to like about Lightning's start?

    Lightning Strikes

    BRANDON — No one is engraving the Stanley Cup. No one has begun stuffing the league MVP ballot box for Nikita Kucherov.

    The Lightning, with a win tonight, would match the best start in franchise history, 7-1-1 in the 2003-04 Cup season.
