In Brief, Women Are Forgotten Again

I figured The Times' sports section was edging almost perceptibly toward sexual parity when I read the trivia question for today's (March 23) Morning Briefing--"How many times has a USC basketball team reached the Final Four?"

I gave you too much credit. The answer involved, as usual, only the men's team, which had appeared only twice, more than a generation ago. That fact that the women's team won the championship twice in the 1980s and, if memory serves, also made it to the Final Four a third time during that decade, completely escaped your attention.
