A quick note on Goins

Coach Gary Williams said earlier today that sophomore forward Steve Goins has not been present on the bench at either of Maryland's past two games because Goins has been rehabilitating his injured knee. Goins has played just four minutes in two games this season after undergoing knee surgery in August in his hometown of Chicago.

"He's working on his knee to try to get it stronger," Williams said. "That's where he is."

Williams confirmed that Goins has been in College Park and is taking a class during the university's winter session. Last month, Goins returned to Chicago so that the doctors who performed the surgery could examine the knee. The doctors recommended Goins take some time off in order to build strength in the knee, and the player appears to be doing just that. It remains unknown when Goins might be healthy enough to return to the court.

This is amazing. There are FOUR updates on the men's team today (so far - the day isn't over). And no new posts for the women's team since November 13th. Why not just get rid of that section if you're not going to bother?

Shame on you for ignoring what has been the better basketball team at Maryland over the last few years.

I don't know, I think the men's team would've beaten the women's team at least one of those years.

Fact is there are exponentially more mens basketball fans here and everywhere than there are fans of womens teams. The Post isn't going to waste much time and money on the womens team when so few people actually care...that's just reality.

Personally, I think they should lower the hoop in womens' basketball and don't really understand the argument against doing it. They already play with a shorter 3 point line, a smaller basketball, no 10 second backcourt violation,etc and a plethora of other advantages over the mens game. So why not lower the hoop and allow their game to evolve into an above the rim game like the mens game? I guarantee you more people would watch if dunking became a serious part of the game.

If you lower the rim, they will come...

krae, direct your complaint to Camille Powell. She controls the UMD women's insider. I'm guessing there just isn't much interest. But don't blame the writer of this blog or it's readers. They have nothing to do with how the women are covered.
