On the tube

Been watching a TON of women's college basketball the last two days:

There is some good ball being played outside of Connecticut.

But worth noting that at the end of the USC-Stanford game, the play-by-play announcer asked Lisa Leslie, the color analyst, if the Cardinal have closed the gap on the Huskies. Leslie smiled then laughed and said she doesn't see anyone beating UConn.

Recruits honored

Bria Hartley and Samarie Walker, both of whom are part of UConn's recruiting class arriving in the fall, will play in the WBCA All-America game this year, it was announced Tuesday.

On a side note: How sad is it watching the struggles of Rutgers? Coach C. Vivian Stringer was suspended one game today for using the team manager as a practice player when the manager was not an eligible student-athlete.

Also...congrats to Villanova, which won its first conference game tonight beating Syracuse.

It fell

the other shoe, that is. A 22-3 run by the Huskies has sealed the win. 58-32 with 11:30 to go.

Kelly the magnificent

Kelly Faris stole the inbound pass, layed it in and drew the foul. The Huskies may have just gotten the spark they needed -- from a freshmen. 40-29 UConn with 5:54 to play.

Block party

Tina Charles has 5 blocks with 6:41 left in the half.

Slowly slaughtering

It's 15-7 with 10:56 left. You know what's going to happen -- some sort of 70-something to 40-something game. It's on the way.

Twice as nice

UConn has two 3-pointers for an early 6-0 lead over West Virginia.
