They’ve got game — and pipes

March 15, 2009 – 6:11 PM

Thanks to Don Imus, we know that women’s college basketball players – contrary to his original assessment – are a talented lot. This season, at least four NCAA Division I players took the microphone and sang the National Anthem before basketball games.

Her player profile doesn’t mention it, but Boston College guard Ayla Brown, has a killer voice that earned her a contestant’s spot in the fifth season of American Idol. She was a regular before home games, belting out the anthem – and then stepping on the court.

Ditto for UConn phenom #23 Maya Moore and teammate #41 Kaili McLaren (okay, they did it as a tribute to the team’s seniors, but they sounded pretty good). And then Stanford forward/guard Michelle Harrison teamed up with Hookslide before the Stanford men tipped off against Cal State Bakersfield last month. I wonder how that rangy-maned shock-jock would sound…
