Sports Comment: what an insane game so far (Stanford-Maryland)

It's halftime of the Stanford-Maryland NCAA Women's Basketball game, and it has been absolutely insane. Stanford is up 51-41. Yes, that's at the half!

Both teams are shooting the lights out (between 60-65%), including popping tons of shots from three-point land, and this is in a game with a near-frenzied pace. Incredible basketball. It reminds me of the kind of games the Stanford women used to play 15 years ago, when they were the epitome of run-and-gun.

We'll see who still has energy left when the second half comes along.

UPDATE: STANFORD WINS!! Final score 98-87!!! That's like *two* UNC-LSU games. Candice Wiggins puts in 41, the second time she's over 40 in the last three games (she's averaging 28 in the tournament). Stanford goes back to the Final Four for the first time in 11 years. Go Stanford! I know what I'm watching next weekend.
