    Man suspected in 6 killings, most targeting women, arrested in Missouri Ahmaud Arbery killing trial: Jurors shown graphic video and photographs of the scene The 2021-22 women's basketball season tips off Tuesday, bringing with it a plethora of storylines and questions ahead of the 40th champion in NCAA tournament history to be named in April. Stanford is the reigning national champion, but it is South Carolina atop the Associated Press Top 25 preseason rankings. And powerhouse Connecticut could put an end to its oh-so-long title drought with another heralded No. 1 recruit, Azzi Fudd, joining reigning national player of the year in sophomore Paige Bueckers.

    Women’s college basketball season preview, including power rankings of the best teams and best players, top freshmen to watch and Final Four picks. Women’s college basketball is back! After a 2020-21 season that featured a handful of teams canceling their seasons amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and games being canceled all over the place, the 2021-22 season should look a lot normal, even if there will still inevitably be some COVID-related cancelations. Last season saw the Stanford Cardinal win the national title, the school’s third NCAA title and first since 1992. Stanford defeated Arizona in the title game, the first time in tournament history that two Pac-12 teams had met in the championship game and the first time since 2017 that two teams from the same conference faced off. Stanford returns much of last year’s team. Will that lead to a repeat title for the Cardinal?

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Eight women’s college basketball players and a manager were kicked off the team at a private North Carolina university because they organized symposiums to discuss racism and social justice, a lawsuit says. The lawsuit, which was filed earlier this month, also says Black players were told by their coach that they weren’t wanted at the school. All eight players and the manager are plaintiffs in the case. The lawsuit in Mecklenburg County Superior Court names Lenoir-Rhyne University, women’s basketball coach Grahm Smith and university president Frederick Whitt as defendants. The players are seeking $26 million in damages, saying in the suit that their chances of professional basketball careers were damaged by the dismissals. The lawsuit also says the school went back on a portion of the student handbook which allows students freedom of expression in public and private settings. Lenoir-Rhyne took away scholarships from the player because they spoke out, according to the lawsuit. A spokesperson for the liberal arts university in Hickory said Thursday that the school hasn’t seen the lawsuit and couldn’t comment...
    The 20 best British crime films The best small towns for retirees While players across college sports jumped on the chance to sign sponsorship deals when the NCAA's name, image and likeness (NIL) rules changed last week, Tuesday saw another barrier broken. UCF's women's basketball became the first NCAA team to sign a sponsorship deal in the new NIL Frontier. Their partner? College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving. The Tampa-based moving company also signed Miami quarterback D'eriq King as one of the first individual players with an NIL deal last Thursday. So what does this mean for the women of UCF basketball? Senior forward Masseny Kaba told the Orlando Sentinel that each player on the team will receive $500 to promote College Hunks on their social media with the opportunity to earn more through commissions. The contract is for one year and is renewable. “We’re really excited," Kaba told the Sentinel. "It’s something new, and we don’t really know where it’s going to go, and we’re just getting our foot in the door. Hopefully, we can grow from this...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vanderbilt has fired women’s basketball coach Stephanie White after five seasons and a 46-83 record. Athletic director Candice Lee announced Tuesday that White will not return. Lee thanked White and her staff for helping the players navigate the challenges during the coronavirus pandemic over the past year. “As I continued my evaluation of the program, I ultimately concluded that change is needed at this time,” Lee said in a statement. “I wish Stephanie and her family the best.” A national search for the next head coach will begin immediately. White went 13-54 in the Southeastern Conference. Vanderbilt opted out this season after a 4-4 start and 0-3 in the SEC in a decision announced Jan. 18. They had dealt with three cancellations with two SEC games postponed. The roster was thinned by COVID-19 issues, opt-outs, injuries, a player with myocarditis and another recovering from an ACL injury. Within the past week, three starters announced they are transferring including top scorers Koi Love and Chelsie Hall and three-year starter Autumn Newby. Hall and Newby...
    AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn has hired longtime Southeastern Conference assistant Johnnie Harris as its head women’s basketball coach. Athletic director Allen Greene announced the hiring on Saturday. Harris has spent a combined 16 years as an assistant at Arkansas, Texas A&M and Mississippi State. She spent last season as the associate head coach at Texas. She helped guide Texas to an Elite Eight appearance this season under head coach Vic Schaefer. Harris was an assistant under Schaefer at Mississippi State, which made NCAA championship game appearances in 2017 and 2018. “Her experience helping build national championship-caliber teams is incredible and her ability to recruit elite players is evident by the success of the programs she has worked with,” Greene said. ___ More AP women’s college basketball: https://apnews.com/hub/womens-college-basketball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    South Carolina’s season ended in heartbreak, while the Stanford Cardinal move on to the National Championship Game. Stanford will appear in its first National Championship since 2010. A hectic finish gave the Gamecocks two opportunities from point-blank range to win the game. Down by just one point, a USC steal led to a made scramble, with Gamecocks’ Brea Beal and Aliyah Boston missing from just beyond the rim in brutal fashion.

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — To hear many of those in charge of Division I programs tell it, the state of play for women’s sports could get worse, not better, under proposals that would put more money in the pockets of some college athletes. Via a new Associated Press survey of athletic directors, and in conversations with ADs and conference commissioners during March Madness, a picture emerged of concern for sports other than the two largest revenue-generators, football and men’s basketball. The AP asked 357 ADs a series of online questions shortly before various differences between the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments were put on full display over the past two weeks, drawing complaints from players and coaches, along with mea culpas from the NCAA. Granted anonymity in exchange for candor, 99 athletic directors participated. The most striking of the results released Thursday: 94% of respondents said it would be somewhat or much more difficult to comply with Title IX gender equity rules if their school were to compensate athletes in the biggest money-making sports. “Sharing revenue with student-athletes...
    Films that did the best and worst jobs of predicting the future Is Your Resume Up To Par With the Competition? The NCAA paying short shrift to female student-athletes doesn't begin and end with the substandard facilities and COVID-19 tests in the women's March Madness bubble. Far from it. It has been evident for quite some time that the organization's ban on athletes being able to profit from their own names, images and likenesses hurt the women in particular. According to data compiled by sports marketing company Opendorse and published by Axios on Monday, of the 16 women's and men's teams that advanced to the Elite Eight, eight of the top 10 most-followed athletes on Instagram and Twitter are women. People with huge social media followings can monetize their popularity through sponsored posts, ad revenue on YouTube and other partnerships. They're called "influencers," and what once seemed to this not-so-old person to be an eye-rolling pursuit is now a bona fide way to get paid quite well. Case in point: Hunter Woodhall. Until recently, Woodhall was a track and...
    SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Paige Bueckers and Caitlin Clark seem to be playing a personal game of horse on the national stage. After one delivers a highlight-filled performance, the other has a top-this moment. The captivating basketball exploits by the heralded freshmen have created a buzz around the women’s NCAA Tournament, including one of event’s most anticipated matchups: Bueckers and Clark will play their first college game against each other in the Sweet 16 this weekend. “This was the potential matchup that raised eyebrows when the brackets came out,” ESPN analyst Rebecca Lobo said. “Fans have been having the debate all season long: who is the best freshman in the country. This game won’t decide that, but it will be highly entertaining for all basketball fans. We need Iowa and UConn to play each other the next three years!” “It’s awesome, just for us to both be on the big stage,” said Bueckers, who had 24 points in UConn’s opening round win — the most ever by a Huskies player in an NCAA debut. “We haven’t really talked about it....
