It's time to start taking the Oregon State Beavers seriously after they beat Baylor, the one team that probably could have pushed this UConn team at least a little. So, if the Beavers could beat the Lady Bears, maybe they have enough to at least compete with the Huskies for a half or so. Oregon State is a great defensive team and has been consistent all season.
Still, even with the Beavers playing their best ball of the year, UConn is still UConn. Huskies make even above-average teams look like they don't belong on the same court.
Huskies roll by at least 20 points.
