No. 1 UConn avoided becoming the second top seed of the 2011 NCAA women’s tournament to fall before reaching the Final Four, blasting No. 2 Duke 75-40. Chalk abides, as the Huskies move on to right the wrong imposed by No. 2 Notre Dame, which knocked off No. 1 Tennessee.
On the other side, No. 1 Stanford awaits the winner of No. 2 Texas A&M and No. 1 Baylor. Early on the Aggies are actually making a little noise, so this tournament might liven itself up with a little (VERY LITTLE) chaos and disorder yet.
Maya Moore led the Huskies with 28 points and 10 rebounds, as she’s known to do. She also added seven steals to fall just a few integers shy of a triple double. That is a hell of a lot of steals. I may have used integers correctly.
