As a parent of a newborn daughter, I was surprised and offended by the Nov. 22 cover. The College Basketball Preview lists SI's Top 20 men's teams but only finds room to include the women's Top 10--in smaller type. Next time why not just rank the men? At least then women won't be forced to draw the conclusion that they're half as important.

North American basketball has recently been less than successful in international tournaments, facing an onslaught of sharpshooting teams. So it was with some dismay that I realized your enormous College Basketball Preview included not one photo of an athlete shooting a jump shot. While we bemoan the drop in shooting percentages, and the mounting losses to teams from other countries, our premier sports magazine emphasizes the dunk.

Contrary to what you published in Scorecard (Nov. 22), my company, SportsNet, LLC, has represented Freddy Adu since he became a professional athlete last year. SportsNet has worked in a diligent manner in guiding all aspects of Freddy's career, and through our efforts Freddy's inaugural professional season has been a resounding success. It is disheartening to see you credit another agency with being Freddy's representative.
