Lost amidst the glory and success our BYU Cougars men's basketball team has garnered is the fact that BYU has another team still playing in a post season tournament. That's right, our women's basketball team advanced past the first and second round of the WNIT and will be competing to play in the quarterfinals; which is where the Cougars got last year.
In the first round they beat Denver and in the second round they clobbered Utah State to a tune of 102-63. Which is the largest point total of the season for the Cougars. They are set to play again tonight against USC at the Marriot Center at 7 on BYUtv; so it's starting in a few minutes now. I'll be watching it (or at least having it on in the background.)
USC made it here after thumping Nevada 78-59. They had four players in double figures in that game. The last time these two teams met was in December of 2008 with BYU winning by one point, 65-64. The overall series between these teams is 4-3 with USC leading it. They split their two games in Provo.
I will admit that I haven't watch a second of women's basketball this year so I can't give any analysis, but I would still encourage you guys to watch if you can and support our BYU athletics.
