Strange Doin's in Women's Basketball

First Tennessee cancels its series with UConn Lady Huskies. Speculation is rampant over the reasons for that, ranging from money to suggestions of cheating to bad blood between Pat Summitt and Geno Auriemma to wanting to not play them so often when they meet in the NCAA Tournamet almost every year.

Strangely, Pat and the Athletic Department have kept silent. John Adams doesn't like it one bit, and makes his feelings known in a rare criticism of the Lady Vols by the News Sentinel.

We may never know the real reason, but I think as time goes on public pressure will mount to give some sort of explanation. Real or made up.

Then today former Lady Vol All-American and Los Angeles Spark All-Star Chamique Holdsclaw retired from the WNBA after eight years on and off in the league. She had battled depression during that stint, and it's unknown whether her retirement is related to that. Holdsclaw gave no official explanation.
