Just catching up on some of the scores from the weekend with a few links:

  • The Seattle University Redhawks also got off to a good start in coach Joan Bonvicini's quest to earn the program's first NCAA postseason bid with a hard-fought 60-55 win on Friday night. Transfer Talisa Rhea made an immediate impact with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Chuckarelei was there to provide a photo gallery as well. Read more >>>
  • Scott Johnson of the Kitsap Sun sums up an unfortunately all-too-familiar scene over the last few years in Seattle: a smaller squad coming into Hec Edmundson Pavilion and getting a win against the Washington Huskies.This time that squad was UC Davis who also spoiled coach Kevin McGuff's first game in Seattle on Friday.

  • The Buckeye Battle Cry has a thorough preview of Ohio State's season in advance of their season opener today against Tennessee State. The relatively young team is led by senior point guard Samantha Prahalis, who could help lead a faster attack than usual with Jantel Lavender having graduated. Read more >>>

Of course there are other links from around the nation. Feel free to drop 'em in the comments.
