https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2024/03/30/kim-mulkey-lsu-griner-reese/

Specifically this passage:

"As afternoon turns to evening in Baton Rouge, Mulkey is still signing and chatting with fans. She's an icon and a winner, one of the best motivators and teachers any sport has seen. But Mulkey is right: Times are different. Long after Summitt's Tennessee teams slept on gymnasium floors because her program couldn't afford hotel rooms, Mulkey now makes $3.26 million per year, most in the women's game. Meanwhile, Louisiana Tech, once a women's basketball dynasty, hasn't made the NCAA tournament in a dozen years. Baylor is no longer among the sport's upper tier, another structure abandoned and left to wither."

To give more context, the writer describes Mulkey's childhood home as withered earlier in the article (as an analogy for Mulkey's falling out w/ her father and sister)

I am ENORMOUSLY proud to have Nikki Collen as the BUWBB coach. Her team was prepared to take down the #1 seed Women of Troy, her play calls were solid, she acknowledged the disparity of officiating, yet pointed out key defensive breakdowns and missed shots that made the difference in the outcome. The woman knows basketball, her players believe in her, and the future is bright (and blossoming).
Now if we can just get a 6'5" post transfer to fill the laneā€¦
