Well, it’s nice to see that

the WHB curse is alive and well and kicking. Sorry Texas Tech – you encountered a Santa Clara team (Remember them? The folks that beat Stanford?) that is reaping the benefits of hiring JR Payne away from Southern Utah. The former point guard at St. Mary’s is in her second year.
Two horrific quarters doomed the Vandals against #7 Oregon State, 69-44.
A spectacular third quarter lifted the #18 Blue Demons over #15 Texas A&M, 80-66.
Burn the tape of the fourth quarter for both teams, okay? The Wildcats down the Blue Raiders, 68-52.
Welcome back, Ms. Moos! #24 Arizona State eked out a win over #18 Syracuse, 61-54.
It took OT, but Cal escaped the Huskers, 87-80. Yup, learn to spell it: Kristine Anigwe.
Baylor’s Niya Johnson was delightfully generous during the Bear’s romp over McNeese State, 105-46.
Alaina Coates triples herself up as South Carolina smooshed Winthrop, 86-37. A little concerned that Wilson was sitting because of being dinged up….
Penguins bounce back and win!
Hello, Bonnies! They take down struggling Penn State, 70-60, for their eighth win.
Hartford v. Dartmouth... yikes. Just look away, folks, nothin’ to see.
Princeton’s monster first quarter propelled them to a 61-47 win over Pittsburgh.
Rachel Banham made sure her “award day” was a good one.
Pushing through the legal distractions, Bollant has his team at 7-1.
In a back and forth game, it was St. Mary’s over Washington State, 75-71.
With their 72-68 win over Fresno State, San Diego is now at 9-1.
Seton Hall moved to 9-1 with a solid thumping of Liberty, 92-56.
Ahhh, in-state battles: Southern Miss topped Ole Miss, 57-38.
FGCU is still winning – perhaps not with the dominance we (and they) are used to… but Kaneisha Atwater scored her 1000th point.
Everyone has a different story about what his or her life was like at 18 years old. For Kaneisha Atwater, her story continues to follow her.
Last week, in a Monday evening away game against FIU, single mother and star point guard Atwater scored her 1,000th career point. With Whitney Knight out with an injury, Atwater has stepped up to lead the team in all aspects.
A not insignificant win for #5 Texas, as the hosted and then, behind Empress Davenport’s 23, handled the #14 Cardinal, 77-69.
Michigan gave #20 UCLA a battle, but the Bruins pushed through for a 86-77 win.
IUPUI had Louisville down 18… and couldn’t hold on.
Sheryl Swoopes’ Ramblers gave undefeated #12 Northwestern all they could handle in the first three quarters, but ran out of gas in the fourth. Wildcats stay undefeated, 81-72.
Record breaker: Alisa Jenkins took down USF/WNBAer Wanda Guyton’s rebounding record as USF took down Chattanooga.
The good news is the Buckeyes won. The bad news: Ohio State assistant coach, two players suspended. The good news: Former Kentucky guard Linnae Harper to play for Ohio State.
Boston College has moved to 8-1… keep an eye on their game against Florida State, Jan 7th.
