I'm gonna pick SC - 72-62. Paige will get hers, but SC will limit Azzi and Boston, Amihere, Cooke and Henderson will carry the scoring load for SC enough to come out with the win.

SC steamrolling in their first two games helps a lot here. They limited their starter minutes yesterday and will come out with fresher legs. 4 of UConn's starters played over 30 min yesterday. If they want to slip Azzi in the lineup, not sure who they take out: Westbrook or Edwards? If they try to play with 1 post, they will get murdered inside. If they go with Edwards, well...they'll still get murdered inside and lose a perimeter scoring threat. Should be an interesting game!

Question for those watching this game. When UCONN has the ball. The player with the ball pivots into the defender basically setting a screen for the offensive player trying to get the hand off or get her free. How is this not a moving screen on the player with the ball? She basically hip checks the defender each time.

I've seen lots of moving screens from UConn in years past, but I don't think anything they are doing is particularly egregious.

ONO has stuffed Boston twice this game so far. Surprised she isn't getting dominated more.

Thing is if a player without the ball remotely comes close to sticking their hip out it’s called. Should be called for the one holding the ball as well

8-0 UConn run to take the lead by 2. Amihere heading to the line to try to tie it up. Misses both, but a steal by SC and layup on the run from Cooke ties it up.

Really entertaining game so far. Cooke and Boston are playing outstanding for SC.
