11/7/2022: The No. 16 LSU Tigers’ 125 points were the most in program history, as were their 44 made free throws. They have now scored 343 points through three games, which hadn’t been done in NCAAW Division I in the last 20 years. Maryland transfer Angel Reese leads the team with 64 points.

11/7/2022: Cayla King of the No. 13 Virginia Tech Hokies drained nine triples — the most by one player in a single game in program history.

King, a true senior who has spent her whole career at Virginia Tech, made 66 threes at a 38.6 percent clip as a sophomore and 67 at a 39.2 percent clip as a junior. On Monday she was 9-of-16. She finished with 33 points, outshining her team’s big three (Elizabeth Kitley, Ashley Owusu and Taylor Soule), which came into the season with so much hype. The Hokies defeated Mount St. Mary’s 101-45.
