Erin Whalen didn’t care how close the defender was, she let it fly with confidence from distance to burn DePaul early.

Stay on your toes

With this type of footwork, the defense will always be on its heels.

Breathing room

Beating the buzzer

Chloe Storer used every second of the clock to get this buzzer-beating 3-pointer off at the end of the third quarter.
