DALLAS — Half the people who watched the national championship game were furious with the officials, while the other half was incensed an athlete had the audacity to talk trash.

If you want the surest sign yet that women’s basketball has arrived, there you go.

For too long, women’s basketball – all of women’s sports, really – has struggled for air in the national conversation. There are all kinds of reasons why, and that’s a debate for another day. But for several decades, the score of LSU’s 102-85 win over Iowa on Saturday would have been noted, maybe the fact it was the Tigers’ first national title, and that would have been about it.
