As the fall sports seasons are coming to an end, players are headed inside to get warm as the winter sports season begins. The women’s college basketball season is set to start in just one short week, with five of the most exciting games of the year, you will definitely not want to miss them. Women’s basketball gets some people excited the way to others get excited for Monday nights during football season. So, here is a little insight on these exciting games.
Baylor and UConn are set to take the court November 17th at 7:30. UConn coming off winning 4 back-to-back NCAA titles is about to meet their match in this game. UConn has lost most of it players at the end of last season and is having to start over fresh, whereas Baylor has ten well experienced players returning to take the floor this season. Baylor may be able to dethrone the reigning champs, but this will be the game of the year. This will be a game you don’t want to miss out on.
Southern Carolina and Texas is going to be another one of those nail-biting games, that you are not going to want to miss. Southern Carolina only return 2 of their starters from last year, but have 4 letter winners coming up in the lineup. Texas has 9 players returning to the court this year. Both of these teams were ranked in the top ten last year and look to do the same this year. These two teams are very evenly matched, and when they played each other in an exhibition game earlier this year they showed to have about the same amount of talent.
UConn and Notre Dame, this matchup between the four time champs and one of the NCAA teams with the most number of returning players and the best depth, this could be good. UConn has the toughest schedule of any of the colleges this season and other than Baylor this may possibly be one of the hardest games for them. Hopefully their new and the little old talent they have can come together and pull this win off.
Washington and Oregon State are set to play each other, and Washington is looking to take down the beavers this time. The beavers have beat Washington three consecutive times just in the last season. Oregon State has quite a lot of returning players as well as Washington. These two teams are conference rivals and they are each hoping to take down the other.
Notre Dame and Syracuse these two who match up right before the season ends are each hoping to come out on top. Going into this game Notre Dame will be the favored team, but not if Syracuse can help it. This is not going to be an easy game for Syracuse to win, but I guess we are just going to have to watch it on February 19th to see what the outcome of the game actually is.
