    Basketball -- men's and women's -- is a strange bird up in Happy Valley. Wrestling and women's volleyball have blown past basketball in the pecking order there.

    Penn St WBB was never a perennial contender for national titles but they were a very solid Conf Champ contender every year until the end of Rene Portland’s tenure (2007), when some allegations sent them into a tailspin.

    Some of their accomplishments
    - 12th WBB program to reach 850 wins
    - 1 Final Four Appearance
    - 4 Elite Eights
    - between 1982 and 2005 only missed NCAA tourney 3 times
    - 8 Big Ten regular season titles

    Then again, back in the era of Rene Portland, the Bryce-Jordan Center was a-rockin’ every women’s basketball game! I’m sure Sandy Barbour would like to feather her hat bringing back those days!

    No need to go into details except to say this is the most frustrating 24-5 team I can imagine. Now I get a sense how fans of teams like ARIZONA feel. Don't hold a lot of hope for the AR, but maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. @#$#&+%€¥£¢π√

    Lots to talk about now that 18-19 is in the books.
    This team had several outstanding wins this year as well as several puzzling losses. Beating IUP twice as well as GSU were definite highpoints while losing to BORO twice and SRU and KUTZ absolutely rotten losses. Don't consider the SHU loss in the same class because they can be difficult at home.
    Congrats on a great career to SEAIRRA BARRETT one of CAL U greatest, and many thanks to to all the effort put forth by ABBEY SPORIO, JIAHNA FLOOD-FRANCIS and the latest "wonder from down under" EMILY SUCKLING.They all epitomized what it takes to be a part of VULCANS WBB.
    Very happy the the large freshman class got as much playing time as they did because it will certainly come in handy next year. Overall the 4 who played, ALLEN, WOODYARD, BENNETT and HARRISON were on the court almost 25% of the time and all showed some flashes of what's to come.
    If I were to guess the starting five to the '19-'20 season will be JASPER, VALLECORSA, HAHN, ALLEN and WOODYARD.
    Finally, keeping my eyes on PSU HC search, I see COACH STROM mentioned in various blogs as a possibility but truly a longshot. That makes me a happy VULCANS WBB fan.
