espnW contributor LaChina Robinson prepares to speak with some real party animals at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa, Fla., on Monday. The Women’s Final Four is being played in Tampa this week.
ESPN put on a stunt at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa where animals gave their picks for the Women’s NCAA championship (Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN). Multimedia content producer D’Arcy Maine said, “It was [Talent planning manager] Lisa Stokes‘ idea and she was instrumental into getting it together. The zoo had done similar things for other events before, and even the Yankees apparently did something there recently.”
