Play it again, Sam

By Barca Blog - As Weinman's blog stated two posts down, the bracket for the 2009 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament has sort of a deja vu feel to it for the fourth-seeded Commodores.

Yes, Vanderbilt will once again travel to The Pit in Albuquerque, N.M., the same location of their first and second round postseason victories last March (also as a No. 4 seed). Not a bad place to return to when you consider the 'Dores topped Montana and West Virginia by convincing margins of 28 and 18 respectively.

"We had a good experience there," said head coach Melanie Balcomb. "We're 2-0 in Albuquerque. We are going to be familiar with the altitude, the court and the gym and have good, positive feelings about it. If we had done poorly last year, I might feel differently.

"Once you get on a court that you feel good about, that you've had success on, you're going to feel that and think that. It's just something that's familiar with us as opposed to going somewhere that could be unfamiliar or maybe had a negative experience."

And this brings me to the video of the day. Since deja vu is the phrase of the day, here's a clip to chew on.

Phil? Phil Connors? Phil Connors, I thought that was you!
