Video: Gabby Williams Continues To Get Better

UConn Huskies women’s basketball freshman Gabby Williams was recruited by Geno Auriemma to be a guard. But during her practice early in the season, he saw something in her athleticism that said she could play forward. Plus with UConn a little short at the forward position as far as depth, it couldn’t hurt. We all know Geno knows what he’s doing and it’s shown with Williams...

S. Carolina rallies to stay atop AP women's poll

A last-second putback kept South Carolina at No. 1 and dropped Duke out of the top 10 for the first time in six years. The Gamecocks trailed by four late to the Blue Devils on Sunday and appeared to see their run atop The Associated Press women's basketball poll be a short one. But a 3-pointer by Tiffany Mitchell and a basket with 1.8 seconds left by freshman star A'ja Wilson kept...

Video: UConn Women Drub Vanderbilt 91-52

UConn Huskies All-American Breanna Stewart spent a good portion of the game on the bench with foul trouble so it gave head coach Geno Auriemma a chance to see what the team could do without her. If he saw what I saw, he had to be pleased with the effort of what’s supposed to be her supporting cast. Morgan Tuck and Kia Nurse each had 16 points to lead UConn to a 91-52 win over the...

Video: UConn’s Kia Nurse Bounced Back Nicely Against Creighton

UConn Huskies women’s basketball freshman Kia Nurse didn’t exactly play her best game in the loss to the Stanford Cardinal last Monday. She played just 20 minutes and had nine points but fouled out of the game at an important stretch in the second half. Was her fouling out the difference? Probably not. The key though would be in how would she bounce back in the next game. It’s...
