Women’s basketball madness


It was a wild weekend in women’s college basketball. The University of Connecticut and Mississippi State faced off in the national semifinals on Friday night, and most people (including myself) assumed UConn would steamroll Mississippi State on its way to its fifth-straight championship game appearance. However, that was not the case as Mississippi State’s Morgan William hit this beauty in overtime for the win. The Twitter world went crazy, and for good reason. UConn has been so dominant for so long that 65 percent of brackets had the Huskies winning it all this year. I have never seen/heard so much buzz around women’s basketball, so I think Mississippi State’s incredible win was actually great for the sport. Check out this nice recap from the New York Times.

South Carolina went on to beat Mississippi State for the national title, which was another twist in the storyline. This year’s tournament was fascinating, and I hope the excitement regarding women’s college hoops continues into the coming years.
