Down 21-2? No problem for LSU as it came from behind to knock off No. 1 Tennessee. What does this mean? Well, for one thing, it means to beat the Lady Vols, you need a dominant post presence like Sylvia Fowles. Maybe if the Huskies run into them Tina Charles can step up. Next, it means that provided the Huskies win at Pitt Sunday -- which they should -- expect to see UConn back atop both polls next week. And if what LSU didn't put a big red flag next to the Feb. 25 meeting between Huskies and Tigers, I don't know what would have. At that point, LSU might be playing to be the No. 1 team in the country. I suspect they'll be No. 5 come Monday, a jump of two places.

I didn't care who won Monday, but I'll go to my grave believing Rutgers was hosed. Too bad controversy had such a big part in determining the outcome.

Watching LSU turn it around last night with a convincing win, it points out how important post play is going to be in the tournaments (Big East & NCAA). Tina Charles has to become more dominant. Sunday at Pitt will be a nice place to start. Otherwise, UConn won't have to worry about a hotel in Tampa.

I think weekly rankings are meaningless, but it's going to be interesting to see where UT ends up next week.
