Before you make your South Carolina vs. UConn bets or lock in any Women's NCAA Tournament predictions, you NEED to see what women's college basketball experts Calvin Wetzel and Aaron Barzilai are saying.
Barzilai is a Ph.D. from Stanford who served as Director of Basketball Analytics for the Philadelphia 76ers. Five years ago, he founded HerHoopStats.com -- a groundbreaking website that unlocks insights about the women's game. Wetzel, the site's lead betting writer, incorporates his mathematical background and strong knowledge of women's NCAA hoops to turn the site's prediction model into picks.
Barzilai and Wetzel got off to a fast start with SportsLine as they went 13-7 on their first 20 picks. Currently, they are 590-430 overall (+127.40 units, +13.6 percent) in the 2021-22 women's college basketball season. Anyone who has followed them has seen HUGE returns.
Barzilai and Wetzel know the Gamecocks have been the top team in the nation the entire season. Their defense is one of the best, allowing less than 51 points per game, and 6-foot-5 junior Aliyah Boston is a force. She had 23 points and 18 rebounds in the win against the Cardinals. She averages 17 points and 13.4 rebounds while also getting 2.4 blocks. USC blocks 7.6 shots per game (most in the nation) and had four Friday. Opponents shoot 32.7 percent from the field against the Gamecocks, also the best mark in Division I.
The experts also know that UConn has a pretty strong defense of its own. It ranks second in the nation in scoring margin (20.3 points) and allows 54.6 points per game (14th). The Huskies also can score, putting up just under 75 points while South Carolina averages just over 71. Paige Bueckers and Christyn Williams are a dynamic duo, averaging 14.6 points apiece and combining for 7.4 rebounds, 6.4 assists and three steals. The team has been on a roll since Bueckers came back from injury and comes in brimming with confidence.
