How Taylor Pikes missed that final shot, I don't know. She was wide open and from my perspective, was one of those plays where everything goes in slow motion and you are holding your breath.
It was senior night for DePaul, and the looks on the faces of Deirde Naughton and Allie Quigley were ones of devestation. It's understandable.
They still have positioning to worry about for the Big East Tournament next week.
Assuming that UConn, DePaul, West Virginia, Notre Dame, Pitt, Louisville and Marquette win their final games, this is how the brackets should look for the first round.
No. 5 Pitt vs. No. 12 Villanova, winner faces No. 4Notre Dame
No. 8 Marquette vs. No. 9 DePaul, winner faces No. 1 UConn
No. 7 Syracuse vs. No. 10 St. John's, winner faces No. 2 Rutgers
No. 6 Louisville vs. No. 11 Georgetown, winner faces No. 3 West Virginia
