This week is the time to put a wrap on the WNBA season, and begin the NCAA women's basketball season!

The Sparks won the WNBA title, giving Candace Parker her elusive first title, and teams are tipping off their exhibition games and gearing up for the regular season.

Who better to talk about both than WNBA player and ESPN analyst Kara Lawson?

It was a pleasure to catch up with Lawson today at ESPN's Women's College Basketball media day.

Topics covered include:

  • The Sparks and Candace Parker winning the WNBA championship, and her thoughts about Parker and coach Pat Summitt
  • The refereeing conundrum the WNBA finds itself in; the players are better than the officials
  • The Kara Lawson World Tour 2016, Lawson's trips to various schools to watch them practice, see the transfers and freshmen to get a feel for their teams
  • Her impressions on team's she's seen thus far, and been impressed with,  including Ohio State, Notre Dame, and more.
  • The wide open nature of this NCAA women's season, and the excitement that comes with it.
