NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament 2019: Regional Finals Day 1

No Upsets. Showdowns instead.

If they advance UConn will meet Notre Dame in the Semifinals. No problem. Muffy is a wannabe and what about your 89 – 71 thrashing on December 2nd didn’t you get?

Louisville? They lost to Louisville 69 – 78 January 31st. It was their second and last loss of the season so far. Louisville got a quick start and breakdowns in Defense and poor Shooting as well as a flurry of 3s from Asia Durr led to Connecticut’s defeat. It wasn’t even as close as the score would indicate.

So this year’s team is vincible, hasn’t looked good, and is playing with a much diminished Katie Lou Samuelson (back injuries). Napheesa Collier and Crystal Dangerfield have been looking good though. Can they beat Louisville? Sure, but it won’t be a walk in the park barring a serious breakdown by the Cardinals.

Does anything else matter? Not really.

  1. I liked seeing 5 Pac-12 teams in the round of 16 🙂 Helps to make up for the total failure of Pac-12 men’s basketball this year.

    Oregon is really good and I think they have a fair chance of winning the title. I’ll be very surprised if Stanford can beat Notre Dame.

    I see a lot of trying to wrestle the ball out of an opposing players arms. How is that not a personal foul????
