It might be a good game. I remember reading that the Tennessee women's teams regularly scrimmage against fellow men students. And (from what I can recall, it was a while back), the men players had been good HS players but couldn't quite compete at the UT Div. 1 mens level. And they went at it pretty hard per directive of Pat Summit. Other women weren't really able to challenge the team.
But I don't know how much Div. III guys play above the rim and that might be the difference. The women are very skilled in fundementals (maybe more than Div. 1 men), but lack the dynamic athleticism that men have. I think it would be a good ballgame. Maya Moore is the real deal and plays like a guy.
