Juicy makes history
Baylor Bears senior guard Juicy Landrum made an incredible 14 3-pointers in her team’s 111-43 win over the Arkansas State Red Wolves last Wednesday. In doing so, she set a new NCAAW record. Landrum took 23 3-point shot attempts in the contest, meaning she was 61 percent from beyond the arc.

Louisville pushed to double overtime
The No. 6 Louisville Cardinals are giving their fans whiplash. First, they beat then-No. 1 Oregon Ducks before losing their next game to unranked Ohio State. Two games after that they recorded a key resume win over the No. 14 Kentucky Wildcats before getting forced into double overtime last Thursday against a 4-6 mid-major team, the UT Martin Skyhawks. Louisville lost the first and second quarters by slim margins before battling back in the second half. They played even with the Skyhawks in the first overtime period.
After this disappointing showing, Cardinals’ head coach Jeff Walz had this to say:
I’m trying to get back to a Final Four and win a national championship. I don’t care who we are playing, our goal is to get better.
Jaz Shelley knocked down 10 triples in a win over the UC Riverside Highlanders last Monday, setting a new program record. Shelley was a starter for the first time in her career and went 10-of-14 from beyond the arc, with 32 total points.
Sabrina Ionescu notched her 20th career triple-double in the victory over UC Riverside with 16 points, 18 rebounds (a career high) and 12 assists.
Kelly Campbell of the DePaul Blue Demons
Campbell reached 800 rebounds on the dot in a loss to the UConn Huskies last Monday.
Stanford beat the Tennessee Lady Volunteers by 27 points — the largest margin of victory it has had against the Lady Vols in 37 meetings.
Kylee Shook had six blocks in the UT Martin game, setting a new program record for career blocks. The record was held previously by Angel McCoughtry.
Oregon State Beavers
At 11-0, the Beavers are off to their best start ever.

Games of the week
Ole Miss Rebels over Georgia Southern Eagles last Monday, 69-66 (OT)
The Rebels pulled away in the overtime period so that Nikki McDonald’s layup with 14 seconds cut the deficit to three but wasn’t enough for the Eagles to tie or take the lead. Ole Miss led by eight with 2:41 to go in regulation before Jaiden Hamilton’s game-tying layup with 25 seconds left capped the Eagles’ comeback. McDonald finished with a game-high 26 points in defeat.
Monmouth Hawks over Manhattan Jaspers last Tuesday, 62-60 (OT)
Manhattan stormed back into this one with a 15-5 advantage in the fourth quarter. Jaspers center Courtney Warley followed up a steal with a made layup with 10 seconds remaining in the frame to force overtime. In the extra period, there was no scoring in the final two minutes until Lucy Thomas made the game-winning jumper for the Hawks with four seconds left.
Saint John’s Red Storm over Fairfield Stags last Friday, 71-69 (OT)
St. John’s guard Leilani Correa, who scored a game-high 31 points, made the game-tying shot in regulation and the game-winning jumper in overtime. Both shots came with under three seconds remaining.
