Ok. Not so snoozy.

Memphis got a lead over #20 USF, and then held on for dear life getting the win, 62-57.
It took an extra game and double OT, but Tennessee’s Jekyll and Hyde season continued. Playing at Georgia, they fall.
Colorado was not a gracious host, pushing #10 Washington until late into the fourth. Plum-i-na-tor’s 28 helped secure the 79-75 Huskies’ win.
Vanderbilt kept it interesting, but #24 Kentucky was inexorable. Wildcats win, 71-63.
Coach Barnes is doing a lot with who she inherited. They’re not getting the wins (65-57 loss to #11 Oregon State), but they are putting teams on notice for the future.
Speaking of putting teams on notice – the Ducks made Arizona State rescue a win in the fourth.
Hello, Clemson, getting its second ACC win in forever. This time it was over UNC, 78-67.
And the ouch continues, as Georgia Tech defeats Virginia Tech, 87-81.
Utah has got to be disappointed in their season, and Washington State should be proud: Cougars over Utes, 61-55.
Squeak! With a two point win over Iowa, Michigan moves to 7-2 in the Big 10 – good enough for third place in the conference.
Whoops! Mama said there would be days like this (unless, of course, you’re UConn): (11-11, 5-6) Southern Illinois surprises MVC queen, Northern Iowa, 64-59.
Yup, the A-10 is tight! St. Louis loses to St. Joe’s, 66-63.
#1 UConn, #3 Maryland, #4 South Carolina, #5 Mississippi State, #15 Duke, #17 DePaul, and #24 Syracuse rolled.
Looking forward to tonight’s games – how about you?
BTW: Women’s basketball: stats increase powering women’s basketball
Headline-grabbing events in Division I women’s basketball abound this season: UConn’s NCAA-record winning streak nearing 100 games, Stanford’s Tara VanDerveer closing in on 1,000 career coaching victories, and Washington’s Kelsey Plum averaging over 30 points per game as she nears the all-time NCAA career scoring mark.
However, a season-long story that has gone largely untold has been the significant uptick in Division I women’s basketball statistics nationally this season, with 16 of the 19 major statistical categories showing increases.
