Baylor-UConn Draws Sellout, Gives Women's Hoops Marquee Matchup

Last night's women's basketball game between No. 1 Baylor and No. 3 UConn drew a crowd of 16,294 in Hartford, marking the first women's hoops sellout at XL Center since a game against Louisville in January '11. Baylor won 76-70 and C Brittney Griner reached the 3,000-point mark. The HARTFORD COURANT's John Altavilla writes for "women's basketball, still the scorched earth of the mainstream sports terrain," the game "provided two hours of drenching rain the game so desperately needs to grow" (HARTFORD COURANT, 2/19).
