Hoops Parity?

To anyone who has watched women’s basketball over the years, it’s apparent how much better the college game has become. The players are notably and noticeably more skilled. And it’s not just at Tennessee and Connecticut. It’s across the board, including the University of South Florida, which has a very competitive Big East program.

It’s also obvious how much the women have been emulating their male counterparts. Even the occasional dunk. Alas, there are also more tattoos and more “trash talk.”

Then there was this. I caught part of the Duke-North Carolina game last week. They’re both powerhouses. At a moment of celebration, several exuberant UNC players paired off — just like the guys.

But flying chest bumps?
