Milestones/Achievements

11/17/2022:

Aliyah Boston started her 104th straight game, breaking the program record.

11/20/2022: No. 1 South Carolina snagged the 17-game home winning streak of No. 2 Stanford Cardinal, winning their 16th straight against a ranked team and their seventh straight against a top-five team. Boston has recorded a double-double in all 16 games.

11/16/2022: Taylor Robertson, senior of the No. 16 Oklahoma Sooners, equaled the NCAAW Division I record held by Jess Kovatch (St. Francis Red Flash) by making at least five threes for the 39th time. She had five in an 89-80 win over the UT Arlington Mavericks.

11/15/2022: Robertson reached 2,000 career points.

11/16/2022: Robertson climbed to fifth place in NCAAW Division I for career 3-pointers made.

11/20/2022: Doug Bruno, head coach of the DePaul Blue Demons, reached 800 career wins.

11/16/2022: Ashley Joens of the No. 7 Iowa State Cyclones broke the program record for field goals scored — she has 804 as of Sunday.

11/14/2022: Azzi Fudd of the No. 5 UConn Huskies averaged 58 points after just two games that season, setting a program record. UConn legend Swin Cash had her number retired ahead of the game.

11/20/2022: Fudd scored 32 more points.

11/20/2022: UConn’s Nika Mühl dished out 15 assists, a program record.

11/20/2022:

Abbey Hsu led the way with four threes; Paige Lauder led on percentage (3 out of 4).

11/20/2022: The UCLA Bruins (RV, 31 points) set their program record for most three-pointers in a game with 16 in an upset 80-63 win over the No. 11 Tennessee Lady Volunteers who sent them to the Battle 4 Atlantis Championship Game.

11/16/2022: The No. 25 Utah Utes set a program record with 124 points and feuded with the No. 16 Sooners. They also set a new program record for profit margin in a leaderboard win, winning 124-78. The record had been a 24-point lead, so they broke it by 22. The 24-point win came against the then-No. 20 BYU Cougars in 2004-05, so they beat a higher-ranked team this time, too.

11/17/2022: The No. 4 Iowa Hawkeyes’ Caitlin Clark had more free throws (13) than ever before in a single Bramlage Coliseum game.

11/14/2022: The No. 14 Virginia Tech Hokies conceded just 24 points, setting a program record.

11/16/2022: The No. 15 LSU Tigers broke the 100-point barrier for the fourth straight year, something the program had never done.

11/20/2022: LSU broke the 100-point mark for the fifth year in a row. The Louisiana Tech Lady Techsters hold the NCAAW Division I record for most consecutive 100-point games with six (1982). LSU head coach Kim Mulkey was on that team that won the first NCAA tournament.

11/20/2022: The No. 19 Maryland Terrapins handed the No. 17 Baylor Bears their first non-conference home loss of the regular season since January 13, 2014.

11/16/2022: Abby Meyers from Maryland made it to 1,000 career points.

11/15/2022: The No. 20 Creighton Bluejays held the first-ever women’s basketball sellout at their home arena, the DJ Sokol Arena. Two thousand three hundred and six fans were in attendance. The Bluejays defeated the No. 22 Nebraska Cornhuskers 77-51. They hadn’t beaten the Huskers that badly since 1993, and they had never beaten a ranked team that badly. The two Nebraska schools have never faced each other while both were ranked. Creighton became the first team to record two ranked wins this season and are 4-1 ahead of the last five against ranked teams. The loss was understandable as they faced eventual champion South Carolina Gamecocks in the 2022 NCAA tournament.
