With her six rebounds Saturday, Kelly Faris joined Maya Moore as the only two players in UConn women’s basketball history to score at least 1,000 points with 750 rebounds, 500 assists and 250 steals.
“You think of the accomplishments she [Moore] had, everything she was able to do during her career in such a short amount of time,” Faris said. “Just to be mentioned with her, in any way, means a lot to me. But when it really gets down to it, statistics are just on paper. I am more about what happens on the court and some of that stuff doesn’t necessarily show up [in the box score].
“I’d say I probably had to work the most for my rebounds [she now has 751]. Mentally, the toughest accomplishment was the points [1,016].”
Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, who scored a career high 32 points in Saturday’s 85-51 win, is in the midst of a great run. She has scored 98 points and with 39 rebounds in her last four games and has had only two games in single-digits since scoring nine at Georgetown Jan. 9. .. Stef Dolson’s double-double (25 and 10) was just her second of the season, her first since scoring 10 with 14 rebounds at Stanford … UConn was 22 of 23 from the foul line on Saturday
