Clark had a great week. Must want new blood.
Was just going to say that. I guess their tired of giving it to Clark every week. Even so her 46pt 10 assist game would officially go on the previous week as a Sunday game. Still 32pts and 6 assists on wed not to shabby.
As for Keegan, thats a joke. Bakers numbers pale in comparison even though Rutgers got two wins, so did Iowa. I guess there are no other good freshman in the league either. McGowens won it again, for the 6th time, and he did Bubkas against Iowa until the game was a 35 point blowout. He was a total non factor in that game....
