To the editor:
Congratulations to the KU women’s basketball team on making the championship game of the WNIT.
And, shame on the J-W for not routinely interviewing the girls on the team (aside from a comment or two from Danielle McCray). If it were the men’s team in the Final Four (and no disrespect, guys!), Cole Aldrich, Sherron Collins, Brady Morningstar, Marcus Morris and/or Markieff Morris, Danny Manning and Coach Self would’ve likely ALL been interviewed. Why can’t you take the time to interview the gals?
And why didn’t we have a two-page spread in the middle of the sports section, with color photos of the game? With stats, “Go figure” and all of the accoutrements that come with the reports on the men’s games?
Let’s show our women’s team that we REALLY support them: Show ’em the love, get out to the games, interview these young women (as you would the men), and put THEIR photos (not just one color photo and one black and white photo) all over the middle-spread of the sports section! They ARE our winners in March Madness!
