Is there any other way to start this conversation than with National Player AND Defensive Player of the Year, Aliyah Boston?! This matchup screams DEFENSE.
The Gamecocks have allowed more than 60 points just eight times this season, and only two in their past 21 games!!
The Huskies also showed off a lockdown defensive performance of their own against Stanford’s size in the Final Four, and outrebounded the Cardinal by nine even without big Dorka Juhasz, who fractured her wrist in the Elite 8.
The Huskies have allowed 60 or more points just twice since February 9!
Given the job Geno Auriemma’s group did in the Final 4, it’s not out of the question for them to hold Boston in check just enough for the under to cash.
