My name is Rebecca. Some of you might know me as Queenie, others as NYCScribbler, yet others as "HEY! You in the Lobo jersey! Pipe down!" In no wise are you to call me Becky. That's an old antipathy from my infancy, though it's certainly grown stronger in the last eight years.

I've been a WNBA and New York Liberty fan since day one, and a college fan since about 2004. I hold season tickets to the Liberty and the Red Storm of St. John's, but I have a tendency to pop up in a lot of other places as well.

In case you're wondering, that's me in the profile image, in the background of a game at Mohegan Sun Arena.

When I'm not watching basketball, talking about basketball, posting about basketball, or thinking about basketball... I'm probably sleeping. Even then, my brain has been spotted casting WNBA players in my dreams, and every season brings with it the recurring nightmare of having gotten to the arena and forgotten my tickets.

I write the "Game Notes of Doom". They are opinionated, lengthy, often profane, and occasionally profound. Here I hope to touch upon matters less specific than individual games- less beat writer, more columnist. So far, no dice.

Pirates top Tigers in WNIT

Have you ever seen a team dig in their heels and declare that this is not the end?

Dance Card: Cal, Pac-12 at-large

Making a Final Four raised expectations and Cal met them in conference play. But can they repeat their post-season success?

Dance Card: Arizona State, Pac-12 at-large

Charli Turner-Thorne works her magic again.

Dance Card: Vanderbilt, SEC at-large

Led by their guard play, Vanderbilt hopes to redeem themselves in the tournament after a disappointing season.

Dance Card: Kentucky, SEC at-large

Defense didn't win a SEC championship, but it's where Kentucky excels.

Dance Card: Syracuse, ACC at-large

May a steady starting lineup help them earn a NCAA Tournament win.

Dance Card: Oklahoma State, Big XII at-large

Alternating wins and losses could be a problem in a single-elimination tournament.

Dance Card: Purdue, Big Ten at-large

No B1G championship this season, but a solid fourth seed in the region closest to home.

WNIT: Harvard's buzzer-beater eliminates Iona

One play. One play would have been enough. One play *was* enough.

Dance Card: Texas, Big XII at-large

There's no shortage of pride deep in the heart of Texas.

Dance Card: Georgia Tech, ACC at-large

Might want to box out Ty Marshall, if you get a chance.

Dance Card: Maryland, ACC at-large

If Thomas's teammates can consistently step up for her, allowing her to shine, Maryland can surprise some people. But if Thomas has to go it alone, the Terps could be a quick out.

Dance Card: LSU, SEC at-large

With a SOS like that, the Bayou Bengals come in battle-tested.

Dance Card: Iowa, Big Ten at-large

The point guard is the glue that holds this team together.

Dance Card: West Virginia, Big XII at-large

An experienced team that made some noise in the Big 12 this season.

Dance Card: BYU, WCC at-large

Two bids for the second time in three years?? WCC's coming up!

Dance Card: St. Joseph's, Atlantic 10 at-large

There were no guarantees, but everything worked out fine.

Dance Card: Georgia, SEC at-large

Hardly a shoe-in, the Bulldogs look to surprise a few folks in the tournament again.

Dance Card: Oklahoma, Big XII at-large

It was a season that fell short of first place expectations, but resulted in a tournament berth nonetheless.

Dance Card: Texas A&M, SEC at-large

Still weird to think they're not in the Big XII.

Dance Card: N.C. State, ACC at-large

While their place in the field isn't a surprise, their run this season is a bit of one.

Dance Card: Duke, ACC at-large

The number two seed in UConn's region, again.

Dance Card: Florida State, ACC at-large

From the bubble to facing Iowa State in Ames for the first round the tournament.

Dance Cards: Florida, SEC at-large

You'll be forgiven if you were a little surprised by this one.

Dance Card: Iowa State, Big 12 at-large

Get ready for a three point barrage in Ames.

Dance Card: Penn State, Big Ten at-large

The Big Ten regular season champs are back with home court advantage.

Dance Card: North Carolina, ACC at-large

Youthful triumphs have defined the season.

Dance Card: Michigan State, Big Ten at-large

A veteran team that is sometimes overlooked.
