Even Women's Basketball Games Are Fixed Sometimes

Notre Dame was forced to Throw One for the Gipper in their 83-65 loss to Connecticut in the Final Four of the women's tournament on April 7. That game was fixed, just like hundreds of other college basketball games every season. Baylor's "loss" to Louisville in the regional semifinals was another obvious hoax.

One of the telltale signs to watch for when a game is fixed is when players suddenly find they're unable to make routine jump shots and layups in the most important game of the season.

Notre Dame's uncharacteristically abysmal (29.7 percent) shooting performance against Connecticut is a telltale sign that the fix was in. Against Connecticut, Kayla McBride was 3 for 4 (75 percent) from 3-point range and 2 for 16 (12.5 percent) from 2-point range. When they're not missing shots on purpose, players can usually manage to shoot a better percentage from 10 feet than they can from 20 feet. Not in this game.

The Irish (22-74, 29.7 percent)) managed 12 more field-goal attempts than Connecticut (29-62, 46.8 percent). If they'd made 10 more baskets, they would have won the game. That would have meant going 32 for 74, or 43.2 percent. That shouldn't have been too difficult, considering they shot 41.3 percent in their previous game against Connecticut, and they shot 46.0 percent against Duke in the regional finals.

Skylar Diggins (3-15), Kayla McBride (5-20) and Jewell Loyd (5-17) combined to shoot 13 for 52 from the field, or 25 percent, and yet Notre Dame made 17 for 20 from the free-throw line (85 percent). Strange, isn't it, considering they had so much trouble finding the range everywhere else on the floor?

I'm not saying Connecticut didn't have a great team. They might have won anyway, even if the game hadn't been fixed. But they wouldn't have won by 18 points, I can guarantee that. It would have been another close, hard-fought struggle, just like the first three Notre Dame-Connecticut games this season.

As far as the Baylor-Louisville game is concerned, that one was thrown at the 3-point line, where Louisville went 16 for 25 for 64 percent, thanks to Baylor leaving them wide open on purpose. From 2-point range, the Cardinals had a more typical performance, 11 for 31 (35 percent).

Baylor's Brittney Griner is considered by some experts to be the greatest player in the history of women's basketball, and the Bears also have at least one and maybe two other WNBA propspects in their starting lineup. Baylor went 40-0 last year, won 32 in a row this season and was a prohibitive favorite to win another NCAA championship. I guess it just wasn't in the (Louisville) Cards this time.

Connecticut exposed the fraud by trouncing Louisville 93-60 in the championship game. In other words, the ballclub that knocked off the greatest team in the history of women's basketball got blown out in the championship game by 33 points by a lesser team! And 33 just happens to be the highest degree of corruption available in Freemasonry. Another tip-off that it was a Masonic operation all the way.

The gangsters in charge of fixing all these games must think basketball fans are pretty damn naive, and on the whole, they're right. But I'm not your typical college basketball fan, and I can usually tell when the fix in in. After reading this blog, I hope you'll be able to as well.
