Kelsey “Jackie Stiles I’m comin’ for your scoring record” Plum topped the 3000 point peak and is sailing towards 3,393. In the process, garnering herself (and her team) well deserved attention: Washington Women Paint a Target on Those Other Huskies
These Huskies do not overpower opponents as much as they sweep them up in their current. They score points in bunches, rattle opponents with pressure and pass the ball with flair. Blink, and they are up by 20 points. They went to the Final Four last season. This year, they expect to return.
But these are not the Huskies you usually hear women’s basketball fans talking about.
Did you catch Howard Medgal’s interview with the Plum-i-na-tor two months ago?
What about them Blue Jays? Creighton women’s basketball: A Minnesota dream team
The running joke was created many years ago.
Maybe Steve Huber should get an apartment in the Twin Cities.
The former Creighton women’s basketball assistant coach was in town nearly enough to justify it.
It was Huber who convinced Creighton head coach Jim Flanery that the Bluejays needed to push more recruiting resources into Minnesota. With talent in the tundra and only one Division I university in the state, Minnesota was an area worthy of the staff’s time and effort.

“Peterson just had an unbelievable game,” Moore said. “I feel kind of like an idiot sitting here having somebody score 45 points on us. We tried to double her. We tried to trap her. We tried to keep it out of her hands. We just couldn’t figure out a way. I’m disappointed we let one player really go off like that and be such a big difference in the game.”
Boom: Good win for LA Tech as they give the 49ers their first C-USA loss – with authority: 80-54. Nice history piece: How Tech’s ’82 title team revolutionized women’s basketball
There was a time, almost four decades ago, when Louisiana Tech ruled the world of women’s college basketball.
The program, led by future Hall of Famers and those considered pioneers of the game, helped revolutionize women’s basketball into the product it would later become and still is in the present day.
The Lady Techsters were that good, and it was evident to everyone.
In the WCC, everyone’s beating everyone.
The Tennessee women’s basketball team this year is not the same Tennessee women’s basketball team that was dominating the sport years ago.
But let’s not dampen the moment of what it feels like to beat Tennessee for the first time in 21 years.
