These Women Are Kicking Everyone’s Butts 🏀

[Cameron Brink’s] gonna shut your ass down, clown!

March Madness is not only for the boys, but the girls as well, and we thought it was about time we give major props to the Top 5 women’s college hoops players not named the legendary, iconic, ground-breaking, or whatever other superlative you can conjure to describe Caitlin Clark.

Without further ado, let’s get to know some of the ladies who will be making NCAAW news when the Big Dance begins.

JuJu Watkins, G, USC

It’s hard to fathom that one of the most dominating players in the women’s college game is a freshman. I don’t know what you were doing when you were 18 but I certainly wasn’t making women’s knees buckle every time I made a move…or was I?

I kid because I love, but seriously, JuJu Watkins, no relation to JuJu Smith-Schuster, will be the new gold standard once CC moves onto the WNBA. She’s averaging 27 points, 7.2 boards, 3.2 assists, and 2.4 steals per game. The USC women’s basketball team has a stone-cold assassin on their roster for the next few years and you’ll be hearing much more from my girl JuJu.

Angel Reese, F, LSU

If you watched any of the 102-85 ass-kicking the LSU Tigers gave Caitlin Clark’s Iowa Hawkeyes in the NCAA tournament finals last year then you no doubt recall Angel Reese’s trash talk more than the 15 points she contributed in the championship game.

A 6’3” forward, Reese averages 13.1 rebounds per game and takes no prisoners on the court. She’s flashy, strong, and doesn’t hesitate to throw down – literally – just ask Missouri’s Hayley Frank. Whether she takes the next step to the WNBA after this season is anyone’s guess but I’m sure LSU fans want her back for one more year.

Cameron Brink, F, Stanford

Let’s talk about the Pac-12 Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year for a moment, shall we? If you think this star just began to shine then think again amigo because she was offered a scholarship to Stanford when she was only 13 years old!

Yes, the girl can play, just ask Oregon State when she dropped 25 points and cleaned the glass with 24 boards. Brink is averaging 17.8 points, 12 rebounds, and a nation’s best 3.52 blocks per game. When you try your Kareem Sky Hook on this one, she’s gonna shut your ass down, clown!

Hannah Hidalgo, G, Notre Dame

Please put your hands together and give a big round of applause for the 2023-2024 ACC Defensive Player of the Year and ACC Newcomer of the Year, Ms. Hannah Hidalgo! Standing just 5’6” Hidalgo may be small but she’s mighty as evidenced by her 23.3 points per game and her nation-leading 4.6 steals per contest average.

And check it out, she’s only a freshman! There’s a bountiful buffet of talent in the women’s game and much of it comes from this freshman class that’s livin’ large and in charge. Aren’t they supposed to respect their elders before taking over the game?

Kamilla Cardoso, C, South Carolina

I think it would be incumbent upon you to call the authorities and have me arrested for fraud if I didn’t include at least one member of the powerhouse South Carolina Gamecocks. Kamilla Cardoso, get your ass down here because it’s time to give you your flowers.

The Cocks (I realize I could have written the team’s full name but I refuse to let an opportunity like this pass when it’s available) went undefeated in the regular season for the second consecutive year and just defeated LSU to secure their second straight SEC title. Neither of those accomplishments happens without the big girl in the middle, 6’7” Kamilla Cardoso.

Cardoso seamlessly took over for Aliyah Boston after she moved on to the WNBA where she became the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, landing with the same team who will be picking Caitlin Clark this year, the Indiana Fever. South Carolina’s imposing center is averaging a team-leading 14 points and 9 ½ rebounds per game. She has been projected as high as the No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming WNBA Draft.
