Fall 2010 Semester Countdown #3: Women’s Basketball Defeats #2 Baylor 65-64


Here is game #3 in our Top 5 Games of Fall 2010 Semester Countdown. On November 16 at XL Center, the #1 UConn Huskies women’s basketball team faced off against the #2 Baylor Lady Bears, led by the manly Brittney Greiner. Down by one, 65-64, Baylor chose not to foul and instead forced the Huskies into a shot-clock violation. Unfortunately, there were only about 1.5 seconds left when they got the ball, and a desperate heave failed.

This #1-#2 matchup was by far the tightest the Huskies were played during what would eventually become a 90-game winning streak. But thanks to 30 points by Maya Moore, the Huskies were able to pull this one off. And surprisingly, Greiner only managed seven rebounds. This was my first game ever at the XL Center, plus it was on National TV (ESPN2) as part of the 24 Hours of Basketball Marathon. All in all, a great game.
