If seeing Maya Moore and Angel McCoughtry go one-on-one isn't enough to excite you, I don't know what is. These are two of the very best not only in the Big East, but in the nation.

Watching them guard each other as well as move away from the ball gives a great appreciation for what these women can do on the court.

McCoughtry has had a fantastic Big East Tournament and, if Louisville were to win tonight, will be named the tournament MVP. There are two other candidates for that honor, both from UConn: Tina Charles and Renee Montgomery.

Keep an eye on Louisville defensive rotations that leave Charles covered by the two or three in the post. The Cardinals aren't trying to go small on Charles, that's just dumb. But they swing bigger players out onto the perimeter to make the outside shots for Moore, Montgomery and Swanier more difficult.

So far, that's not happening as the Huskies are on a 7-0 run and lead 14-6 with 14:44 to play in the half.
