Beth Mowins and Kara Lawson handled announcing duties for last night's BYU-Gonzaga game from Spokane. Mowins is one of ESPN's best on the play-by-play mic, and Lawson is an established star as an analyst. Turns out a lot of brain-damaged misogynists had a problem with basketball knowledge being spat at them by smart, capable broadcasters who happen to possess vaginas. Here are some of the stupid things those people said.
2 girls commenting a men's game... KYS ESPN!

Both the play by play and color commentator on ESPN for the Gonzaga/BYU game are women. Way to ruin a good basketball game ESPN

But for serious, Kara Lawson is a better color commentator than 80 percent of the guys doing NBA games.
