Kelsey Kept Scoring
On one hand, Romeo kept on scoring. On the other hand, so did Kelsey Plum.
By the end of the third quarter, the Huskies led 80-42. The team would go on to cruise to a victory: 90-67. Natalie Romeo would lead all scorers with 32 points on 10-19 from three-point range.
The victory raises the Huskies to 20-2 overall, and 8-1 in PAC-12 competition. But the greater story is that of Natalie Romeo. Was this a fluke, or can she be long range artillery in the weeks ahead? Can she emerge?
If Natalie Romeo IS the player who took the court tonight, the Washington Huskies Women’s basketball team are in far better shape than many realize. Romeo would be the third standout player. And that is enough to become a champion.
If they keep playing like this, they will soon discover the answer.
