By MIKE LITTWIN | July 31, 1992
BARCELONA, Spain -- I've got a friend who, whenever I bump into him, invariably says, "Mike, I love women." Now, you may ask why he says this: A. He has questions about his sexual preference. B. He thinks there's an off-chance I might be a woman. C. He hopes that if, in fact, I turn out not to be a woman, I might know where some are. But, what he never says -- indeed, what you rarely hear anyone say -- is that he loves women's basketball. That's because: A. It's women's basketball.

COLLEGE PARK - It's the good and the bad of it. The bigger women's college basketball gets, the more cutthroat the enterprise becomes, which is why it might be fair to ask how long first-year Maryland coach Brenda Frese will stick around. She is 32. She is an Iowa native (Cedar Rapids) with deep Midwest roots (assistant coach at Kent State and Iowa State and head coach at Ball State and Minnesota). Also worth mentioning, Frese, unlike her counterpart, Gary Williams, is not a Maryland alum.

It may be opening day for the Orioles, but I'm still enjoying my recent memories of the first and second rounds of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament at College Park. My husband and I had two reasons for attending. First, we are big fans of college sports, primarily our alma maters (the University of Maryland and the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana). It's not very often that you have a chance to attend the early rounds of a national tournament in your own backyard. But just as important for me is the fact that I played basketball at Maryland for a year in the late 1960s.

TWO MORE YEARS were added to Debbie Yow's contract by the University of Maryland this week. If it's big news when Gary Williams' deal gets extended or Ralph Friedgen gets a raise, then it ought to be similarly noted when the woman who keeps it firing on all cylinders for the Terps gets her just reward, too. Not that the athletic director's contract extension was the first thing Yow wanted to talk about yesterday. A more urgent subject was the women's basketball team, which stands to reason.

This is, by no means, an endorsement of post-game rioting, regardless of the fact that it apparently is as much of a tradition in College Park as rubbing Testudo's nose. Still -- setting fires and overturning vehicles after a women's basketball game, championship or not? Never thought I'd see the day. This is what women's basketball at Maryland used to be, back when I was a young student journalist there in the early 1980s: the Terps women playing a doubleheader at Cole Field House with the sometimes-unranked men, with the women playing the early game.

Some nights, when she looks down at the other bench, Trudi Lacey, head coach of the WNBA's Charlotte Sting, might see someone in a pantsuit similar to hers. Mainly though, her counterpart these days is wearing a suit with a tie, and that makes her scratch her head. "Yeah, an endangered species," said Lacey with a chuckle, "women that coach women's basketball. I think the W is still in front of WNBA. But that's OK. It's a challenge. I'm a competitor." A look around the WNBA, which has begun its eighth season, reveals decreasing numbers of women head coaches.
