Here's Where We Stand:
Tweny-nine games into the season and the women remain undefeated. When the UConn women, win, they don't just win by a hair...they go all out. On November 16, they started the season off by defeating Ohio State 100-56. They beat their seasonal point record of 100 on December 30th, 2015, when the team defeated Cincinnati 107-45. Usually, the women win by double of what the other team scored, except for a few instances. On February 8th, 2016, the women won by only 12 points when they played against South Carolina. But hey, it's still a win in our records! By the looks of these stats, our UConn Women's Basketball Team should have no problems making their way to the championship.
