“Around the NCAAW Weekly” highlights the notable events of the week. Check out the milestones, surprises, best games and outstanding performances for games played through Sunday, Dec. 18:


12/18/2022: Madi Williams of the No. 24 Oklahoma Sooners reached 2,000 career points in her 124th career game. Oklahoma defeated Southern 76-50. It has a nation-high two 2,000-point scorers on its current roster. The other is Taylor Robertson.

12/14/2022: Angel Reese of the No. 11 LSU Tigers accomplished a Tiger feat last accomplished by Sylvia Fowles in 2006-07: she reached 10 double-doubles in a row. Fowles ended up with 19 in a row. Reese notched the double-double with a career-high 32 points, 15 rebounds, four assists and four steals while shooting 13-of-15 from the field. LSU defeated Lamar 88-42 without allowing a single assist.

Reese had 25 points, nine boards, three steals and three blocks in her last game of 2021-22 (Maryland’s loss to Stanford in the Sweet Sixteen), so she was one rebound shy of a double-double.

12/17/2022: Reese had 30 points and 12 boards for her 11th straight double-double. Also, Alexis Morris reached 1,000 career points in her 100th career game. LSU defeated Montana State 91-52.

12/18/2022: Reese had 25 points and 20 boards for her 12th straight double-double. She also reached 1,000 career points in her 59th career game as LSU defeated Oregon State 87-55.

12/18/2022: In their 77-70 loss to the No. 2 Stanford Cardinal, the Tennessee Lady Volunteers recorded single-digit turnovers for the third game in a row, the program’s longest such streak. The 1992 Stanford national championship team was honored at halftime.



12/15/2022: Freshman Darianna Littlepage-Buggs of the No. 18 Baylor Bears scored 30 points in a 93-27 victory over Tennessee State. No other Division I player had outscored a Division I opponent in 2022-23. Brittney Griner in 2009-10 was the last Big 12 freshman to accomplish that. Baylor’s 66-point win is the largest margin of victory under second-year head coach Nicki Collen, topping the previous mark of 55 set in the Bears’ previous game, which was against UT Arlington.

12/18/2022: Maddy Siegrist of the No. 25 Villanova Wildcats reached third place in program rebounds and now stands at 876 boards. She had 32 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks in a 74-62 loss to the No. 14 Iowa State Cyclones.
