The cruel ending of Dara Mabrey’s college basketball career came with her writhing in pain on the Purcell Pavilion court and reaching for her injured right knee. Testing Monday confirmed that Mabrey injured her ACL early in Sunday’s 76-54 Notre Dame’s women’s basketball victory over Virginia. The diagnosis, which was first announced Monday evening by Mabrey on Instagram, will sideline her for the remainder of the 2022-23 season.

For the first time in the 47-year history of The Associated Press women's basketball poll no team from Texas is in the Top 25. The Texas Longhorns fell out of Monday's poll, ending a 835-week run that had at least one team from the Lone Star state in the rankings. From Wayland Baptist, Stephen F. Austin and Baylor appearing in the first poll in 1976 to Texas' No. 25 ranking last week, there has always been at least one team from the state in the poll until now.

Aliyah Boston showed once more her consistency is every bit as important as her enormous talent. Boston had her program record-setting 73rd double double with 13 points and 14 rebounds as No. 1 South Carolina moved to 20-0 with a dominating 92-46 victory over Arkansas on Sunday. Boston's coach, Dawn Staley, has watched the 6-foot-5 All-American stay engaged and focused despite junk defenses with three or four players aiming to limit her production.

Okako Adika scored 11 points with 11 rebounds, while Taylor Bigby and Kayla Williams added nine points each as the Trojans set the tone with their defense and held on late to end a 14-game losing streak against the Cardinal who had won 51 straight against unranked opponents. It was USC’s first victory over Stanford since the 2014 Pac-12 Tournament.

If you’re Notre Dame, you put the game in the gifted hands of a point guard like Olivia Miles, let her pick apart a defense and relax. When things got a little dicey for the seventh-ranked Irish in Sunday afternoon’s game in front of 3,736 in the JMA Wireless Dome at Syracuse, the Miles show kicked in and paved the way for a solid 72-56 road win. “She did a great job of just managing the offense, managing the team,” Notre Dame coach Niele Ivey said of her 5-foot-10 sophomore who’s on watch lists for all the major college basketball awards.

The 6-foot-5 senior had 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead No. 1 South Carolina to an 81-50 victory over Missouri in Sunday. It was Boston's 71st double-double, moving her one away from the program's all-time record that's held by Shelia Foster.

Following 11 losses the past two years, Notre Dame’s women’s basketball team bounced back each time. Sharpening all the areas of their game that went stunningly dull in the 10-point loss at No. 22 North Carolina last Sunday, the Irish pounced on the Demon Deacons from the start and never let up in an 86-47 rout. Notre Dame, which had dropped from No. 4 in the national rankings to No. 7 after the loss, pushed its record to 13-2 and 4-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
