Junior Shenneika Smith’s three-pointer with eight seconds to go lifted the St. John’s Red Storm over #2 UConn, snapping the Huskies’ 99-game winning streak that dated back to 2007. No doubt, the biggest upset of the year so far.
Pictures, including the game-winning shot (far right, third row….looks like some of the UConn fans can see what’s about to happen).
#1 Baylor narrowly avoided an upset of their own, holding off Texas Tech, which lead the game much of the way. Baylor clinches at least a share of the Big 12 title.

#12 Green Bay also held off an upset, overcoming Youngstown State in overtime, 77-72.
West Virginia was trying to pull off their third upset, and had #20 DePaul by 14. But the Blue Demons surged back for the 77-63 win.
Cal’s victory today over Oregon State puts them at 20 wins on the season.
San Diego State earned 20 by stuffing Air Force.
Another close one for CSUN:
The Matadors trailed UC Davis by 15, but rallied for the 63-60 victory.
UC San Diego students will vote whether or not to move from DII to DI.
It’s the UCLA-USC rematch, this time in the land of Troy. There will be a jersey retirement ceremony at halftime for Pam and Paula McGee. Like the Jackson Five, I’ll be there.
