With the arrival of March Madness, people all over the country are filling out brackets and giving their opinions on who is going to win it all. ESPN W is dedicated to women’s athletics and they interviewed several of the nation’s top recruits to see who they were pulling for in the Women’s March Madness Tournament. One of those interviewed was Sydney.
Here’s what they posted:
Sydney Brackemyre, Louisville
Brackemyre, a 6-foot forward from Clinton-Massie (Clarksville, Ohio), keeps it simple when explaining why she likes Louisville’s chances.
“Two words: Jeff Walz,” Brackemyre said of the Louisville coach when asked why the Cardinals could go a step beyond their runner-up finish from a year ago. “The entire Louisville staff does a great job of preparing the X’s and O’s and scouting the opponent.
“I think Louisville has a chance to get back to the championship game because history repeats itself. Their past success will repeat itself, in my opinion.”
While Brackemyre agrees that UConn and Notre Dame are the favorites, she also has been impressed with South Carolina (27-4), the No. 1 seed in the Stanford Regional.
“[Coach] Dawn Staley is doing a great job with the program,” she said.
Brackemyre said she will watch most of the tournament at home decked out in her favorite Louisville T-shirt, but there is also a chance she will catch some games in Louisville since the city will host a regional.
As for players to watch outside of Louisville, the No. 3 seed in the Louisville Regional, Brackemyre listed two: “Tricia Liston of Duke – I love how she plays. She is so skilled. And Diamond DeShields has been blowing up this year. I want to see how she does in her first NCAA tournament.”
