Games I wish I'd seen on 9 December 2013

Matt Ryerson-US PRESSWIRE

There were only ten games yesterday, so which one do I pick?

There were a grand total of 10 games played in Division I women's basketball yesterday.  Therefore, this installment of games I'd wish I'd seen is just going to be one game.  Not that other people aren't watching basketball.  If you want to read about Maryland's Alyssa Thomas and her great night against Siena - the magic numbers are 11, 12 and 13 -  you can visit the Testudo Times for the writeup.

Illinois (6-5) held off visiting Seton Hall (7-2) by a 71-70 score.  The Priates held a 41-30 rebounding advantage over the Illini, with 16 offensive rebounds as compared to just nine from Illinois.  Seton Hall led for most of the game, but Illinois finished up with a 28-7 run to squeeze by the Pirates. 

Senior guard Amber Moore scored the 3-pointer with 43 seconds left for Illinois to tie the game at 68-68.  Illinois would get the final shot, and junior guard Ivory Crawford missed her shot with six seconds left, but junior forward Nia Owen got the rebound and was fouled on the putback. 

She made the first free throw - her only point of the night - and missed the second. Seton Hall got one last shot from behind the 3-point arc, but couldn't hit it.
