Upset City, episode #39

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.

#19 Texas A&M got the best of #16 LSU, 72-67.

So what’s up?

I suspect some teams are getting tired late in the season. It happens.

More results:

#14 North Carolina State got by Virginia Tech in overtime, 72-71.

#23 Cal pounded WSU, 87-70. Bear junior forward Reshanda Gray (one of LA’s very, very finest) notched her 1,000th career point.

#1 UConn is still unbeaten after pounding #4 Louisville, 81-64.

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.

Full scoreboard.

More news:

This is where Oklahoma State’s Tiffany Bias gets all her toughness.

Florida’s Lily Svete bounces back.

Big Monday:

#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.

  1. I do believe (it's been a LONG time) that I saw Washington beat Stanford back in 1990. With seconds to go, Cardinal point guard Jennifer Azzi called a time-out…but Stanford had already used all of theirs. The Huskies made the technical free throws and won the game. Go, Dawgs!
