The crowd has not had much of a chance to be a factor tonight. Another thing that UConn tends to do: neutralize foes' homecourt advantage.

A'ja Wilson not out to warm up before second half, not on bench. Asia Dozier not playing this game because of hand injury.

Tiffany Mitchell not attacking like she usually does. Admittedly, UConn makes it hard to do that. But wonder if she's still sore, too (Back)

Sidenote..I am a HUGE Napheesa Collier fan. She has an innate ability to find the ball, and uses every inch of her frame, rare for her size.

Mechelle Voepel @MechelleV

South Carolina fans at last get to wave the "3" cards they all had on their seats, thanks to Tiffany Mitchell.

Mechelle Voepel @MechelleV

Senior Sarah Imovbioh has been able to give Gamecocks a lift a few times this year. They could use that now.

Mechelle Voepel @MechelleV

A'ja Wilson was hurting that whole trip down the court before she just went to the floor. Now she's headed back to locker room.
