    This was an amazing game with great performances, yet your radio broadcast this morning omitted any reference to it until just now (9:45) – Stanford is the only Northern California (possibly all of California) men’s team still competing in a tournament at this point. Give them some credit!!! Instead you keep emphasizing the negatives like the Warriors’ loss, the treatment of the owner, etc.
