Key women’s college basketball games this season
Question of the Day
Key games in the 2011-12 women’s college basketball season:
An early season test for both squads. Tennessee will be more scrutinized than usual with coach Pat Summitt revealing this summer that she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia. The Hurricanes are led by super guard tandem of Shenise Johnson and Riquna Williams. The pair helped Miami win the ACC last season for the first time since the Hurricanes joined the conference in 2004.
The defending national champion Aggies will get a tough opening test against the Cardinals. Texas A&M is hoping Kelsey Bone can make up for the loss of Danielle Adams to graduation and complement Tyra White. The Cardinals are led by talented guard Shoni Schimmel who is joined this year by her sister Jude.
Preseason WNIT Finals
If all goes according to plan, No. 1 Baylor will host second-ranked Notre Dame in an early season showdown between the top teams in the nation in the preseason WNIT. The Lady Bears are led by 6-foot-8 phenom Brittney Griner, who spent the early part of the school year on a 12-day tour with the U.S. national women’s basketball team. Notre Dame is led by super guard Skylar Diggins who led the Irish to the national title game last season before falling to Texas A&M.
Annual matchup between two of the top programs over the last decade. Stanford ended UConn’s record winning streak last season when the Huskies went out West. This will be the first real test of the season for the Maya Moore-less Huskies, who will need to find a way to stop the Ogwumike sisters _ Nnemkadi and Chiney.
