Women's Team Wreck France, Are Absolutely Sensational

Congrats to Mrs. Shelden Williams, aka Candace Parker, and her teammates on the U.S. women's team, who destroyed France en route to the gold medal in Olympic basketball. Winning by a record 36, the women now have an all-time record of 58-3.

Parker had 21 points and 11 rebounds to pace the team.

The men get tons of attention, and understandably so, but Geno Auriemma is a superb coach and this team, stocked with UConn legends, is largely an affirmation of his brilliant UConn career.
