Women’s Final Four: Stanford Cardinal defeats Sooners; UConn Huskies Await

The time has come for the ladies to take it to the hardwood in the Final Four. The Stanford Cardinals defeated the Oklahoma Sooners 73-66. Watching this game you would be extremely questionable about if Stanford has the energy and stability to even match-up with the surging UConn Huskies.

Oklahoma made Stanford work hard for every shot they made. It all comes down to who wants it more….and having a guard like Nnemkadi Ogwumike to put up 38pts for you does not hurt.

“I didn’t think I would actually be open,” Ogwumike said. “I thought it was an awesome play to run. It was definitely spur of the moment. A great coaching decision. We executed it right and it worked.”

Ogwumike made the play of the game when Oklahoma was gaining on them with a breakaway layup.

#77 in the works for the UConn Huskies. Brittney Griner and the Baylor Bears has much to say about that, but not enough falling 70-50. Although down big in the 1st half, not able to get it going, Baylor put UConn in a position they’ve never been in before in the 2nd half.

Baylor is the 1st team this year that has come within 3pts of the Huskies in the 2nd half, but sad to say that was the closest they got. UConn has far too many weapons not to win. Maya Moore and Tina Charles are the 2 best players in the country and they are on the same team. Maya passed Cheryl Miller and Candace Parker today for most career points in a tournament. UConn awaits Stanford on Tuesday.
