Women's 2017-2018 season thread

Heck of a win to beat #25 ranked DePaul on their home court in Chicago. With their difficult non-conference schedule that includes a home game against LSU who are receiving some top 25 votes. We also play Liberty University (which amazes me that anyone considers them an institution of higher education, so I hope we throttle them).

And, they improve to 2-0 with another nice road win over DU. Hopefully they can pack the gym for their home opener against LSU on Wednesday.

That is really awesome. I am impressed they could get a team like LSU to play us in Greeley and the fact that we have now beat a top 25 team in DePaul and a major SEC program in LSU speaks really well for what they are doing.
They still have a trip to New York and some home games (including BYU and CSU) before they start conference play. What a fun season this could be.

Bears are ranked #16 in the nation using the real time RPI rankings. http://realtimerpi.com/college_Women_ba ... l_rpi.html
Take it with a huge grain of salt (UConn is ranked 266 because they have only played 1 D1 team and their strength of schedule rank is 322 (vs UNC's 50)).

It's still cool though.

4-0 after their win against San Francisco. They seem to get off to slow starts but it looks like they dominated the 2nd and 3rd quarters. Now they are off to an east coast swing visiting Hamden, CT and the Bronx, NY.

Well, after a low scoring trip out east where they only scored 49 and 33 points in their 2 games (82 total), they come home and score 79 in an OT win against BYU.

2 more home games against Pacific and CSU before heading to Kansas City for a pair then they start conference play.
