Villanova's Maddy Siegrist explodes for 50 points, shatters multiple records

South Carolina stays at No. 1 as LSU and Indiana loom in Power 10 women's college basketball rankings

Maddy Siegrist, the nation’s leading scorer, exploded for 50 points Saturday, the most this season by any DI women or men's player.

The Wildcats took down Seton Hall 99-65 with Siegrist scoring more than half of Villanova's total points. 

Siegrist shot a whopping 77 percent from the field and went 4-of-6 beyond the arc. The senior forward also recorded 10 rebounds and two steals. 

The performance smashed a 38-year-old program record previously held by Shelly Pennefather who scored 44 points. Recently, Siegrist became Villanova's all-time leading scorer in both the women's and men's programs.

Now, she shatters the Big East women's basketball all-time regular season record. In a conference that is historically loaded with legendary players like Diana Taurasi, Breanna Stewart and TIna Charles β€” to name a few β€” Siegrist tops them all. 

The all-time scorer started off hot against Seton Hall with nine points in the first quarter. She followed wih 13 points in the second quarter, 15 points in the third quarter, and 13 to finish up the fourth quarter on 6-of-6 shooting. 

With Siegrist scorching and No. 15 Villanova peaking at the right time, the ceiling rises higher and higher.
