A BIG shout out to the Empresses of the Ottoman Empire! They just finished off Texas a&m to win the Reef division (Duke won the Coral division, fwiw...go ACC) of the Paradise Jam in the US V.I. They won all 3 games by double digits and were never seriously challenged in the 2nd half of any game. They will surely be ranked when the next polls come out at 8-0. Next up: a visit to Iowa in the B1G/ACC Challenge. At 7-1 The lady Hawkeys have looked pretty impressive themselves so this will be a very tough road test, for sure. But, today, we enjoy anohter big win and successful trip to the Carribean before they return to the frozen tundra of CNY. Hopefully, mercifully, prayfully this will translate into some adequate fan support when they next return to the floor at home!! Great Job Ladies! You have just annexed another priceless territory in the name of Otto! The sun never sets on the Ottoman Empire!
