Beth Mowins, take notice! Lafayette is 4-0.

A banged-up Rutgers is 3-0.

Continuing to right the ship at IUPUI.

Duke rolled over Alabama.

Ohio State had a lead over Georgia, then couldn’t score in the second.

Central Michigan could score against Kentucky, but they couldn’t defend the Wildcats.

Whoa – Marist is 0-fer to start the season.

It was a tight game throughout, but the Boilermakers escaped. Don’t sleep on Toledo.

South Carolina pulled away in the second half, but Seton Hall is showin’ folks something’ this season.

Nice win for Marquette over Vandy IN Nashville. I would have enjoyed listening to the announcers: Ploufee, Pumroy, Foggie (30pts. 16-18 on FTs).

Worth mentioning: Wisconsin is 3-0.

Great WNIT finals, as Louisville stormed back in the last couple of minutes to send the game into OT, and eventually got the win over Oklahoma. Hey-ey, Jude.

A tale of three halves — Michigan State topped Dayton in OT.OT’s were all the rage: Long Beach St. over San Francisco, UC Riverside over Santa Clara.

In the land of “No shot is a bad shot and defense is an anathema,” Sacramento State took down Oregon, 97-85.

The “other Gray” went for 30-10, as UNC put away a stubborn UCLA.

Both teams shot for carp, but Tennessee emerged the victor over Georgia Tech.

Down nine with 8 left Green Bay wins by 8.

West Virginia won over Hawai’i, but stupidity followed.

Have I mentioned lately how nice it is to be able to cheer for Penn State women’s basketball again. Congrats to Co and Maggie on a feisty tilt against UConn. Hartley and the Six Left Standing were still too much for them, but there’s good stuff in the future.

Congrats are in order!

didn’t pass Carolyn’s “one eye test.” They got themselves blown out by Texas A&M as Danielle Adams went off for 30 and 13. Writes Brent Zwemerman at the San Antonio Express-News:

Following yet another Danielle Adams basket — this time from beyond the 3-point line in the second half — Adams turned to play defense, and allowed herself a few skips of delight near midcourt en route to another Texas A&M prance past a Big 12 opponent.

The rest of the ranked teams held form as it was Marquette over Providence, Notre Dame over West Virginia and UConn (ugly) over Seton Hall.

A note about the Seton Hall team. Last year they scored 24 points against UConn. Total. This year they put up 59. What a difference a coach makes? From Anne Donovan:

“I think most of the girls came and watched the New York Liberty [who she coached last season], so their hunger has really helped me. Who I have been able to coach, what my background has been with the Olympics and the WNBA, they are hungry to get whatever they can from me. That has helped me from the credibility standpoint. I have coached a long time so there have been a lot of different situations and different rosters and trying to bring out the best in the rosters that I have had and that has helped me throughout my career.”

Phew! That was the sound of Bowling Green (11-3 in the MAC) escaping with a 2pt win over Akron as Lauren Prochaska hit a 3-pointer from the left corner with 0.2 seconds to go in the game.

Tennessee Tech is now 14-3 in the Ohio Valley conference.

I’m not sure Elaine Elliott would have enjoyed coaching this season: The Utes fell to TCU, 71-60, and are now 6-8 in the Mountain West.

I can understand why the Huskers might be cranky this season, but 76-34 over Missouri? Ouch.

Back to School for a Basketball Coach

Before accepting the Seton Hall job in March, Ms. Donovan had spent the past 12 years coaching professionally and for USA Basketball. Already a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame based on her international and collegiate playing careers, she has won an Olympic gold medal and a WNBA championship as a head coach—an accomplishment to which only one other person can lay claim. But in returning to coach at the collegiate level for the first time since 1998, she is attempting to make a midcareer transition that her counterparts in men’s basketball generally find to be tricky at best and impossible at worst.

(and no, I’m not talking about Kim’s jacket!) Seton Hall women down Temple, 72-59 for first win under new head coach Anne Donovan

“We really needed this,” Donovan said. “And they needed it. Just for that reward for the work. You can only ask kids to keep working hard at something that’s extremely challenging without a reward. There’s got to be a reward to keep them with it.”

*and a shout out to both Donovan and the Star-Ledger’s Brendan Prunty for making the article happen via a phone interview

Slain N.J. student mourned in Montco – Jessica Moore, a 2009 graduate of Upper Merion High, was shot to death near Seton Hall University.

As the Facebook posts turned from “get better soon” to “R.I.P.,” several recent graduates and current Upper Merion High School students spent the weekend mourning the murder of 2009 graduate Jessica Moore.

Moore, a 2009 cocaptain of the Upper Merion girls basketball and softball teams, was fatally shot at a Seton Hall University off-campus apartment early Saturday morning by a gunman who also wounded four others after he was denied access to a party.
