You know what’s a good, if not oft told story? Meg Bulger playing and playing pretty well this season. Really, we’ve kind of written her off, what, three times now? There was the torn left ALC at Madison Square Garden Jan. 29, 2006, then a second tear of the same ligament in her rehabilitation that cost her all of last season.
Well, she’s back this season and putting up some really good numbers on a loaded team. The Mountaineers are 20-3, ranked No. 11Â in the country, in a quasi-tie for first place in the Big East and take with them a nine-game winning streak into Saturday’s home game against DePaul.
Remember, too, that Bulger “tweaked” her knee against Marshall — I’m still waiting on an official definition of “tweaked” from the SID — and missed games against Gerogetown and Seton Hall. She’s played in the past two and had 14 points last night against Pitt. Bulger made 4 of 8 3-point shots and was accused afterward of raining down 3s upon the Panthers.
Always the bashful one, Bulger deflected praise.
“We’re riding high now so it’s fun and easy for me to come in and do well when the team is doing so well. They make it so much easier for me to come back and be able to play hard. If I need to shoot 3s, I shoot them. If I don’t one game, LaQuita (Owens) makes it rain — wait, did I just say that?”
Yes, yes you did. You’ll remember Pacman Jones (allegedly) made it rainÂ about a year ago now in Las Vegas and got into a heap of trouble afterward. I happen to think Meg was referencing another example of people making it rain.
