Oldude mentioned the Liv factor which made me want to check some stats. Liv has certainly made the sophomore leap that we had all hoped for. Liv had seven blocks against Dayton which gives her 28 in 6 games with at least 3 in every game. She now has has 82 blocks in her career. The top 10 shot blockers in UConn history are: Stewie 414, Lobo 396, Walters 370, Stokes 325, Charles 304, Dolson 254, Collier 251, Maya 204, Schumacher 181 and Peggy Walsh 162. UConn this season has 23 more regular season games, 3 in the AAC tournament and hopefully at least 3 in the NCAA tournament. The next 2 years should have at least 35 games so a conservative estimate would be 100 more games assuming Liv is injury free. If she averages just 2 blocks a game she would move into 6th place behind Tina. An optimistic but not unrealistic scenario would be she averages over 3.3 blocks a game and becomes the leading shot blocker in UConn history. Go Liv, go UConn and have a happy Thanksgiving!It’s still early in the season, but UConn is currently holding opponents to 54 ppg, 2 ppg less than last season. The “Liv factor” looms large so far this season...
