And in Sports News…

In addition to my role at the magazine, I’m also the public-address announcer for Lady Lion basketball games at the Jordan Center—you know, the person who says “Would you all please rise for the national anthem” and “The foul’s on so-and-so; it’s her second, team’s fourth.” So I was happy to watch Penn State blow out Stony Brook last night, 97-58. But I was also bummed to hear that a much-sought-after recruit, Skylar Diggins, announced last night that she’s going to Notre Dame. (Stanford and Penn State were also in the running for her.)

On the other hand, Lady Lion coach Coquese Washington did land four great recruits for next year, including Nikki Greene—one of the top 20 recruits in the country. The team badly needs some big players and Greene, at 6’4″, has the potential to be amazing.

While I’ve been a basketball fan since I was a kid, our senior editor, Ryan Jones, follows the Penn State men’s team a little more closely than I do, and he’ll give you updates on them from time to time, I’m sure.
