Meier Tabbed and Tapped:
UM Women’s Basketball Coach Katie Meier was recently named AP Coach of the Year, alongside UConn’s Geno Auriemma and Stanford’s Tara VanDerveer. This marks the first time the honor is being shared.

Last week, Meier was also tapped into Iron Arrow–the highest honor attained at UM. She joins Senior golfer Maria Ronderos and former baseball player Dean Myers in the Spring 2011 class.

Johnson Garners Honors:

Junior guard Shenise Johnson is making sure her coach isn’t the only one raking in the awards. Earlier this week, Johnson was named to the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Stat Farm All-America Team, the US Basketball Writer’s Association All-America Team, and Third Team All-America by the AP.

Baseball Cancelled Again:
The UM baseball team is still in Massachusetts…still stuck in the cold…and still has yet to play a game in its series against Boston College. Friday night’s game was postponed due to an impending nor’easter. Saturday’s game, pushed back to 3PM, was also cancelled because of lingering poor field conditions from the snow and freezing rain. A double header is scheduled for Sunday, with the first game starting at 11AM.

The Canes need to come out prepared and hungry to bounce back from last week’s series sweep by Georgia Tech. Unfortunately, I think the weather and inconsistent schedule will pay too big of a price. I see the Canes dropping at least one of the two…that is, if they get both games in.
