No national championship for Carlee Roethlisberger

For a while there, it seemed as if Carlee Roethlisberger - a sophomore forward on Oklahoma University's women's basketball team - might follow in her big brother's footsteps and win a championship in 2009. But it seems it wasn't meant to be, as the Sooners were upset earlier this evening by Louisville in the national semifinals.

However, the loss is most significant for Oklahoma's senior center Courtney Paris (daughter of former San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Bubba Paris), who last month guaranteed that the Sooners would win the national championship, and that if they didn't, she would repay the cost of her entire four-year athletic scholarship.
