2014 Draft Watch: No. 1 Dame

Notre Dame has proven themselves over and over again this season, not only as a team that can outlive the legacy of Skylar Diggins, but also as a true No. 2. A No. 2 with a true No. 1: Kayla McBride. The Irish sprinted past Duke, Maryland and Virginia Tech these past three games all with the incredible leadership of Kayla McBride.

Big games this week included Baylor's 81-67 victory over Oklahoma, Stanford’s win over California, and Kentucky’s march past LSU 63-56.

Kayla McBride (Notre Dame)

Notre Dame’s No. 1 dame Kayla McBride may also be the No. 1 guard in the country according to Duke Coach Joanne P. McCallie. And so this is the second week in a row that we’ve highlighted McBride on our site. The senior Irish guard had another stellar game vs. Duke, this time dropping her first double-double of the season with 23 points and 11 rebounds.

Notre Dame is now 21-0 on the season and solidly ranked No. 2 behind UConn.

Chiney Ogwumike (Stanford)

Chiney Ogwumike continues to shine. This past week, the star senior and heavily lauded WNBA draft candidate helped her Stanford Cardinal crush rival Cal 79-64. Ogwumike scored 29 points and brought down eight rebounds.

A true star, Chiney also turned up the assists in the second half, landing several wide-open looks for her teammates.

Other notable seniors:

Odyssey Sims had another 27 point game, leading Baylor past Oklahoma.

Kentucky’s Bria Goss and Jennifer O’Neill each had double-digit games to get Kentucky past No. 14 LSU.
