The upset of the day belongs to the University of Washington, who downed #3 Stanford, 87-82. Incredibly, the win snapped the Cardinal’s 62-game conference road winning streak, and was the first time since 1990 that the Huskies beat a top five opponent.
Then there was the matter of Arizona not just upending #11 Arizona State, but routing them, 68-49.
Florida took down #15 Kentucky, 86-80.
So what’s up?
I suspect some teams are getting tired late in the season. It happens.
Georgia Tech squeezed past Miami, 89-87.
Texas surged past Iowa State, 71-64.
Wake Forest edged Pitt, 74-70.
Oklahoma defeated Kansas, 81-71.
Minnesota outlasted Illinois, 66-61.
In #2 Notre Dame’s roll over Syracuse, Irish coach Muffet McGraw tied the late Kay Yow for 11th place in career wins, with 737.
This is where Oklahoma State’s Tiffany Bias gets all her toughness.
Florida’s Lily Svete bounces back.
#5 Duke will host #13 North Carolina, and #8 Tennessee will host #19 Vanderbilt.
Chantelle Anderson, Michelle Snow, Lindsay Harding and Erlana Larkins will be involved in twitter smack talk.
