Jatarie White played pretty good defense vs. Breanna Stewart on a possession, and what happens? Mo Jefferson hits from perimeter.

South Carolina is playing pretty tentatively on offense, which is another thing we see UConn force teams into doing year after year.

Stewart takes hit, doesn't miss a beat

Breanna Stewart tossed in a layup and was barely phased after she banged her head into a cameraman's knee. UConn leads South Carolina 17-8 after the first quarter on ESPN2.

Morgan Tuck may give up some size vs. Alaina Coates, but she gets position and plays so fundamentally sound defensively.

UConn's Moriah Jefferson makes opposing guards work so hard just to try to do the basics. She just wears foes out. Challenge for SC.

If you want to iso on watching any matchup, A'ja Wilson-Breanna Stewart should be very interesting. 2 of top players in WBB for next decade

Gamecocks' first two baskets come from Wilson, Coates ... the duo that South Carolina hopes to go to throughout this game.

Watch: (1) UConn at (2) South Carolina

The top two teams in women's college hoops face off with undefeated seasons on the line (both are 22-0). The Huskies enter on a 59-game winning streak and have not won a game by less than double digits this season. Live on ESPN2, WatchESPN

Gotta like the smile on Breanna Stewart's face when the South Carolina crowd loudly cheered Gamecocks. It said, "I love this atmosphere."
