Women's college basketball is certainly not my area of expertise, but I couldn't help but notice the bottom line last night when UConn once again slaughtered a ranked opponent. This inspired me to take a look at their 20-0 record and see just how much they are beating down opponents. The answer? Very very badly. Here are some quick bullet point highlights:
~Their smallest margin of victory is 11 points.
~Their average margin of victory is 34 points.
~They have played 3 ranked teams and won each game by a minimum of 28 points.
~Oklahoma is currently the #2 team in the country, they beat them by 28.
~North Carolina was the #2 ranked team when they went to Chapel Hill and beat them by 30.
~They have won 15 games by 28 points or more.
~7 times this season they have doubled up their opponents.
~8 times they've won by 44 points or more.
