WBB Wraps Up Regular Season


The women closed out the regular season this weekend, beating UNC Friday night and NC State today (more poor scheduling by the ACC btw) to finish 25-4. Alyssa Thomas had a monster game today, with 24 points, 17 rebounds, and 4 blocks. And 22 of those points came in the second half.

They finish in 3rd in the ACC with a 12-4 record - Duke is 1st, Miami 2nd. In the NCAA rankings, Miami is #5, Maryland is #6, Duke is #7. It's pretty clear that barring some big upsets the ACC crown is coming down to one of those 3. Personally I think all three have a good shot at it. Duke is probably favored after beating Miami the other night, but MD proved they could beat them. And I think we can beat Miami too, even though we're 0-2 against them this year. It's hard to beat a team 3x, and Miami does worse on the road, even though it'll be a neutral court.

Maryland pretty much controls their NCAA seeding at this point...if they want that 2 seed, it's theirs to lose, as they basically currently hold it. Winning the ACC Tournament would give this team a lot of confidence going into the NCAAs, so I hope they can do it.

Anyway, first ACC Tourney game for them is the quarterfinal, since they have the first round bye. They will play the winner of #6 UVA vs. #11 BC (should be UVA) at 8 pm. Friday. Game to be televised on RSN. They won at UVA by 17 a couple weeks ago. If they win the quarterfinal, they would face Miami in the semis, barring an upset. That means yes, MD vs. Duke is a potential championship game.

And just for fun, a poll!
