Geno Auriemma hopes his UConn Huskies learned something after escaping with a victory at Tulane. Napheesa Collier had 26 points and 12 rebounds and top-ranked Connecticut held off Tulane 63-60 on Saturday night to push its record winning streak to 101 games. "We're not as good as everybody thinks we are and today was a perfect example of that," UConn coach Auriemma said.
The Bulldogs will be playing for the SEC Title on Sunday Against Tennessee. Whether it is a shared title, or if it is outright will be determined when MSU plays Kentucky Thursday Night in Lexington. I’ll be the first to tell you that the only loss I expected South Carolina to have following their MSU win was against UConn. I really didn’t think another SEC team was capable of doing it. But this year has proven that the SEC has lived up to it’s name as one of the toughest conferences in the country for women’s hoops. To be quite honest SC could still lose another game. I do not like their chances in College Station Thursday night against Texas A&M. And they play Kentucky in Columbia on Sunday.
Washington guard Kelsey Plum's postgame celebration Sunday consisted of hugs with family and friends, pictures with kids, autographs and then she was headed to ESPN's nearby studios for a SportsCenter appearance, her second in two days. Plum scored 35 points to move into second place on the NCAA's career scoring list and help No. 9 Washington beat Southern California 87-74. Plum needed just three points to tie former Baylor star Brittney Griner on the list, and she hit a 3-pointer with 3:35 left in the first quarter to tie for second.
