The Might Iciss Picks Duke!

has nabbed Iciss Tillis
of Tulsa, Oklahoma (sounds vaguely like "Tom
Tuttle from Tacoma Washington," for you movie trivia buffs). What's
truly impressive is that she canceled her UConn visit, which is somewhat like
canceling a UCLA visit in 1969 to visit Dayton. That's obscure, too, but
Dayton made the Final Four that year, and it is less referencing Duke's status
than UConn's. UConn has been a huge success in women's basketball, and to have a
major recruit cancel her visit to pick Duke is fairly impressive. Congrats to
Coach G.
