    Post Women's NCAA

    At the end of the 2011-12 Div I regular season, it's interesting to remark as Women’s stats show better than Men’s in all departments but Assists per game.
    Other depts. considered are Points, Rebounds, Steals and Blocked shots (per game).

    PPG
    Elena Delle Donne, Delaware, 27.5
    Reggie Hamilton, Oakland, 25.7

    RPG
    Courtney Hurt, VCU, 12.7
    O.D. Anosike, Siena, 12.5

    APG
    Angel Goodrich, Kansas, 7.5
    Scott Machado, Iona, 9.9

    SPG
    Demetria Frank, Bethune, 4.3
    Fuquan Edwin, Seton Hall, 3.0

    BSPG
    Brittney Griner, Baylor, 5.1
    Anthony Davis, Kentucky, 4.6

    Men perform better in FG% whilst Women take the edge in FT%.

    Data from NCAA official site.

    Britt Griner finally dunked in Baylor's easy win over Florida (76-57) in the second leg of NCAA Tournament.

    She's just the second woman to dunk in NCAA tournament games, after Candace Parker in 2006.

    In another tournament game, Delaware was upset by Kansas 70-64, despite 34 pts by Nation's leading scorer Elena Delle Donne (she had poured 39 in the first game).

    The final will be Baylor vs Notre Dame. Lady Bears are unbeaten (39-0) this year and prevailed over Stanford in a hard defensive game despite 22 points by Nnemkadi Ogwumike, who will likely be the #1 pick in the next WNBA draft. Notre Dame overcame UConn in OT, in a tough great game, which saw just 13 players overall on the court (7 for the Huskies and 6 from the Fighting Irish).

    Baylor's Britt Griner is the winner of the Naismith Trophy for the college player of the year, beating finalists Elena Delle Donne, Skylar Diggins and Nnemkadi Ogwumike.

    http://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball-...naismith-award

    These four players have really performed above many other high-level college players and have another season left to play in the NCAA, except Ogwumike. Quite interesting, they all are skilled in different roles, internationally have already made experience with US teams and could represent the future of the seniors NT.

    Baylor is the 2011-12 national champion having defeated Notre Dame 80-61 in the final game, behind 26 pts, 13 reb and 5 blocks by Britt Griner.
    Lady Bears made history as the first undefeated champion team having reached a 40-0 record.

    Prior to the final game both Griner and Notre Dame's Skylar Diggins denied they would enter the incoming WNBA drafts, and confirmed they will complete their college career next season.

    Legendary Pat Summitt steps aside as Tennesse's coach, taking the title of "head coach emeritus" to help the women's program.
    Longtime assistant coach Holly Warlick will replace her at the head of UT.
    The winningest coach in the college history, Summitt leaves with 1098 wins and 8 national championships.

    Baylor's 42-game winning streak was surprisingly stopped by Stanford 71-69 at the Rainbow Wahine tournament in Hawaii.
    Lady Bears played most of the game without their All-Am guard Odyssey Sims who injured her harmstring.

    Career-high of 21pts with a perfect 9/9 from the field for freshman French center Jodie Cornelie in Dayton's 105-42 big win over Eastern Illinois.
    The margin was the largest achieved by the Flyers.
    Cornelie is a cadet & junior French NT star who lately played in the 2012 U20 Fiba Euro.
    Dayton's Ally Malott (2010 Fiba Americas U18 US team) scored a double-double (15+23).

    Season just started and injury-toll is already heavy.
    Here's a list (for sure incomplete) of season-ending injuries that have affected starters or notable freshmen from preseason to last week:
    Madison Williams, Michigan State, So, C, ACL 3rd time
    Katie Collier, Washington, Fr, F/C, ACL
    Aly Beebe, Stanford, Fr, F, ACL 2nd time
    Asya Bussie, West Virginia, Sr, C, ACL
    Stephanie Holzer, Vanderbilt, Jr, F/C, dislocated knee
    Brene Moseley, Maryland, So, PG, ACL
    Laurin Mincy, Maryland, Jr, G, ACL
    Eugenia McPherson, St John's, Sr, ACL

    Torn ACL is by far the most frequent serious injury especially in women's basketball.
