About 40 UConn people most all suggesting the Gophers lose by 40 plus. Call me homer but I don't think that happens.Big game!
Discussion at the UConn fan site:
As hoped and expected, our defense became reanimated and lethal against Maryland and Paige took command. Remember that a win and no injuries are automatically included. Here are my top 3 other things against Minnesota: 1) Paige to have a great Homecoming Game. 2) Play that same defense in an...the-boneyard.com
UConn will not mess this one up, it's Paige's Homecoming game, so the team will play their hearts out to make sure that she leaves the state as a winner. The Gophers are currently 3-0 winning against Long Island U, Chicago St, and North Dakota St. Massey has those three teams #346, #358 and...the-boneyard.com
South Carolina should be the favorite, LSU total shitshow with all the clashing attitudesOdds to win the NCAA Women's Basketball Championship top 10 teams.
UConn is #1.

To me it's South Carolina #1 and UConn #2 in a virtual tie. Maybe LSU with all that talent but currently embroiled in online spats. Also, the way Stanford stomped Indiana was eye-opening. Iowa will go as Clark goes, probably to the top but who can say?
UCLA is the next Big Ten top four power coming up -- and maybe USC too. UCLA will arrive there late this season or next.
She's a junior and has accomplished nothing in college basketball. This after being the #64 prospect per ESPN HoopGurls.
This is a pivotal game...
UConn was a significant opponent for Hart last season too when she played for North Carolina State. She played but 1 minute in that game, relegated to 3rd string center. After that dissed game she entered the transfer portal.

"Over 100 of Paige Bueckers’ family members and close friends will be in attendance Sunday afternoon at Williams Arena for the UConn women’s basketball star’s senior homecoming against the University of Minnesota."
Link updated not papay wall.
With the big game a few days away, after she had scored a career-high 20 points against North Dakota State, Amaya Battle sat courtside at Williams Arena and talked about her friend Paige Bueckers.
Her first thoughts weren't basketball-related. Not the 2019 Class 4A state title they won together at Hopkins High School. Or about that already-legendary 2020 Section 6 final, in a Hopkins High School gym so jammed that the fire department had to limit the crowd, with Karl-Anthony Towns and some Timberwolves teammates in attendance. The Royals and a Wayzata team that included Mara Braun went toe-to-toe all game. Hopkins won, Bueckers — the top high school player in the country who would go to Connecticut — scored 33, but Braun and Wayzata pushed them.
No. Battle talked about the fall of 2021.
Amaya's mom, Stephanie, had died, suddenly. At the service, Battle was greeting people at the door when Bueckers — who had left Connecticut to come home — was there. "I remember her walking in," Battle said. "And I just lost it. That's the thing about Paige. She has a great heart. She's a great competitor on the court, and that's what most people see. But she has a great heart."
