“What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive. The white ball sailing up into the sky, reaching its apex, falling and finally dropping to the turf, just the way I planned it.”

Among the women's hoops Final Four, being played in Denver, all are No. 1 seeds but only Connecticut was No. 1, followed by Baylor at No. 2 and Notre Dame at No. 4 (Tennessee was No. 3). But Stanford was not among the Top Ten.

Among college sports, men's college hoops was No. 2 behind football and women's hoops was No. 3. The top five also included college baseball and hockey. Football drew 43% of the votes, men's hoops 35% and women's hoops 25%, according to The Harris Poll.
