Some big performances today:

UC Riverside’s 90-80 overtime defeat of Santa Clara was notable also for Brittany Crain‘s career-high 37 points for the Highlanders.

Just ten months after tearing her ACL, Washington State’s Tia Presley put up a career-high 29 points to guide the Cougars over Old Miss, 79-65.

Bashaara Graves and Isabelle Harrison each pulled down career-high 18 rebounds in #4 Tennessee’s upending of Georgia Tech, 87-76. Kaela Davis lead the Yellowjackets with 28 points.

Sacramento State beat Oregon, 97-85. But that didn’t stop Duck freshman Crishae Rowe from putting up a career-high 28 points, along with 13 rebounds.

Bria Hartley tied her career high of 28 points in leading #1 UConn over #13 Penn State, 71-52.
