Women’s NCAA roundup: Maddy Siegrist, No. 4 Villanova roll

3/19/2023 1:29:07 AM EST

Villanova star Maddy Siegrist scored 35 points in the Wildcats' 76-59 first-round NCAA Tournament win over Cleveland State on Saturday to become the fifth Division I women's player to score 1,000 points in a season.

Siegrist's total sits at 1,019, which ranks fourth behind Washington's Kelsey Plum (1,109 in 2016-17), Missouri State's Jackie Stiles (1,062 in 2000-01) and Baylor's Odyssey Sims (1,054 in 2013-14). Siegrist passed Iowa's Megan Gustafson (1,001 in 2018-19) on Saturday.

"It's definitely something that I never even like thought about," Siegrist said. "I never even thought that was an achievable goal. So yeah, it means a lot. I'm really glad we won the game. It's better when you win when you get a milestone than when you lose and you get one."

Siegrist, a first-team All-American, made 15 of 28 shots in a game the Wildcats (29-6) led by as many as 32 points.

The Wildcats will face 12th-seeded Florida Gulf Coast (33-3) on Monday in the second round.

Destiny Leo scored 25 points for the 13th-seeded Vikings (30-5).

Baylor trailed 22-4 after one quarter before staging the comeback that earns them a date against No. 2 seed UConn on Monday. Baylor's Sarah Andrews contributed 14 points and four blocked shots.

Brittany Davis matched her career best of 33 points for Alabama, which lost its fifth straight game.


No. 3 Duke 89, No. 14 Iona 49

Elizabeth Balogun and Celeste Taylor scored 13 points apiece to help the Blue Devils roll to an easy victory over the Gaels.
