NCAA Women’s Championship LIVE: South Carolina leads UConn

Minneapolis – This is a 40 minute championship game, yes.

But if South Carolina starts to show it can win the NCAA title in the first four minutes of Sunday’s game, even against the formidable, brutal and inflexible Connecticut, the premise is pressure-tested and proven to the best of its ability. saj.

The loss could be reduced to a moment, but the Camcocks easily defeated the Huskies in the 64-49 final to win their second national championship in their history.

The main problem with UConn on a night full of them is that there is always time for a fight that does not seem right.

By the end of the first half of the evening, less than three and a half minutes later, South Carolina had a nine-point lead and conceded baskets of four starting players. He had 7 second chance points and 8 rebounds. UConn had a special configuration, except for one unit she no longer wanted to see.

It was the initial and compelling capture of the pride that Yogan has always sown – always – in National Championship matches, setting the tone shockingly to question whether the basketball fan’s thickness inside the goal post would be forgiven.

Instead, they watched South Carolina win its second title in six seasons. Under coach Dan Staley, who took over at Colombia in 2008, he became the first coach to surpass Ocon’s Gino Ariyama in Sunday’s national championship game, with Camcox moving from a neutral plan to a mark being become the main point of the post-season. And just like anywhere else in the country, a destination for respected recruits.

That was before Sunday’s show in Minneapolis.

But South Carolina, unlike the injured Yukon, had an option to enter the championship game and win the title. Camcox led the season in an Associated Press poll, which they never gave up, with a list of five young students and 11 party attendees.

The 6-foot-5 striker, young from the US Virgin Islands has been in the spotlight from the start, with a double career average and a strong end-of-season reputation for Jaguar women. Orima was surprised on Saturday to be “the most powerful person in defense in the United States.”

“If there is one, two, three, four you get the score,” Ariyama said. “It simply came to our notice then. She is able to sculpt wherever she wants. You get the edge of the ball whenever you want. You will recover no matter what ball you follow. She has talent.

There was also talent around her. Jia Kwok, a small guard, has come to Minneapolis with three games with 20 points this season. Brie Bell has proven to be one of the most intimidating defenders in women’s basketball. Destiny Henderson was a former Grand Ranger who was an assistant to the Southeast Conference leaders and was based in Rome, Ga. Victoria Saxton, from A, left the boards and played on the kick.

They would only lose twice – once in extra time in Missouri on Dec. 30 and 2 against Kentucky in an SEC Championship game – before entering the NCAA Championships. Entering Sunday’s game, two days after every South Carolina player scored double-digit games in the last four games against Louisville, the Camcocks averaged 70 points per game, keeping their opponents under 45 in control of the table. . , with a recovery plus -19.4, is the best on the field.

It was also an exception to have opponents in the number of single-digit points per quarter. Camcox, who entered Sunday’s game, did it 39 times. Husky was a potential victim of the 40th edition. But after Camcox amassed four rebounds more than twice as many hits, they were the first.

The first six South Carolina players scored. UConn’s outstanding defender Paige Bakers scored no points and Husky finished the quarter after 14.

Husky attack seemed high in second place, UConn’s comeback improved significantly and Bookers scored 9 runs during that time. Despite playing most of her quarterfinal games in Boston, Ocon kept her safe. South Carolina’s advantage, taking advantage of its impressive move and second-night chances, dropped to 8 in a row.

Gamecox will increase its presence in third place. But the match was tight as South Carolina’s goal was stopped for more than four minutes.

However, the Bookers opened a 10-point run for Husky with the jump, which was part of an effort that included 14 points and 6 overnight jumps. When Evina Westbrook raised Yukon’s lead to 6-3, the team’s second successful shot from behind the cross rang out through the goalpost as they placed the Connecticut flag in the center zone.

But Henderson, who scored the opening points of the evening for South Carolina, easily topped his team’s score on Sunday with 26 points, pushing the lead to 9 right at the start of the fourth quarter. Soon, Henderson and Saxton used fair laps and free kicks to rebuild Camcox’s double-digit lead.

On Saturday, Henderson taught South Carolina how to “listen to and implement our game plan.” She talked about how it was “a great match, a great 40 minutes”.

For Camcox, it was 22 seconds before the start when they equalized. All Uriyama could do after all this time was stand aside and cross her arms.
