0

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas – Paige Bueckers had 21 points and seven assists to help No. 2 Connecticut hold No. 23 South Florida 60-53 in the semifinals of Sunday’s first Women’s Battle 4 Atlantis.

Freshman Azzi Fudd added a season high of 18 points out of six 3-points for the Huskies (3-0) who struggled until the last minute to claim a perfect score against the Bulls (3-2). UConn lost a 13-point lead in the second quarter and an eight-point lead in the middle of the third quarter, then found himself in the final seconds of that quarter after giving up an 11-0 run.

But Bueckers hit a competitive turnaround 3-pointer from in front of the UConn bank to tie it at 45 at the end of the third. The Huskies got the ball to start fourth, and Fudd followed with a straight 3 – essentially six-point possession that put the charging bull back on its feet.

That was the start of a 14-2 burst , where Bueckers hit the post after a perfect feed from Olivia Nelson-Ododa and Fudd added another 3 to push the lead to 56-47 at 4:28.

TOP 25: Ohio State ranks # 2 on the Associated Press poll and climbed one narrow vote by three places behind No. 3 Alabama and No. 4 Cincinnati.

Georgia is unanimously No. 1 in the AP Top 25 presented by the Regions Bank, but the # 2 changed for the second straight week.

Alabama slipped past Cincinnati last week, and then Ohio State overtook them both after routing Michigan State 56-7 on Saturday. The Buckeyes received 1,434 points from the media panel. The Crimson Tide was 1,423 and the Bearcats 1,416.

Notre Dame is high on # 5 of the season and Michigan will be # 6 in their game against Ohio State next Saturday. The Buckeyes-Wolverines winner will play in the Big Ten championship game. FLORIDA: Florida dismissed coach Dan Mullen one day after losing six in nine games, two months after the Gators played at eye level with defending champions Alabama and a year after they got a chance to make the college football playoffs.

Mullen’s breathtaking decline and not-so-surprising exit ended two tumultuous seasons of rising losses, numerous public relations missteps, NCAA penalties, and one win against the minor league Samford, who didn’t seem to be celebrating much for Gators fans.

Mullen finished four seasons in Florida with 34-15 points, including a trip to the championship game of the Southeastern Conference last year and three New Year’s Six Bowls .
