Huge Basketball Showdown Sunday...Do You Know About It?

On Sunday, the top-ranked team in the country will be playing another top five team. Neither team has a loss in conference play and both have just one loss this season. Do you know who the two are?

Still thinking?

Would you have guessed Baylor and Texas A&M?

The two teams will collide in College Station at noon Sunday in what should be a highly entertaining game. Baylor is fronted by former Houston standout Brittany Griner. I had a conversation the other day with a friend of mine about Griner. I said she was like the Wilt Chamberlain of women's basketball. Shockingly, he agreed with me and he's even old enough to remember Wilt!

A&M is led by a host of players, but the star of the show is post Danielle Adams. Having watched her over the past two years, I think the player he best reminds me of is Charles Barkley in that she has a nose for rebounding. She's not the tallest player on the court, but her instincts are great.

The Aggies also feature some of the toughest defense in the country. They are holding opponents to 55.2 points per game and a .367 shooting percentage. Baylor's defense is even stingier, as the Bears are giving up 50.2 PPG and a .307 shooting percentage. Both teams might have trouble scoring in this one, but it should be a fascinating battle of some of the top teams in women's basketball (if you're into that sort of thing).
