Let’s Go Comparison Scoring For UConn Women

by Categorized: Breanna Stewart, UConn women's basketball Date:

You know how sports fans – and sportswriters – enjoy comparing one generation of players to the next?

You don’t? Where have you been during all these eras?

Well, freshman Breanna Stewart has begun her UConn career by averaging .80 points per minute this season. You know me and math, but that equates to 32 points per game. Not bad.

She also has scored 101 points in her first six games (16.8) which puts her on pace to outscore every player in the Top 10 of UConn’s all-time scoring list over their first 10 games.

Here is the list:

Miss Maya: 165

Rebecca Lobo: 143

Nykesha Sales: 134

Svetlana Abrosimova: 131

Tina Charles: 98

Diana Taurasi: 93

Kara Wolters: 77

Kerry Bascom: 73

Tiffany Hayes: 73

    Stewie didn’t do much tonight–but she kept Uconn in the game in the first half. Got 13 points game high was 14 with Dolson getting it.
    If anyone want to speak of the player of the game it was a 3 for . Dolson, Faris, Banks. Banks played her best game in a UConn Uniform. The Kids–Tuck and Jefferson gave good minutes but were not impact players. KML was great until she hurt her leg. She got gimpy you could see she was damaged. Stokes did everything right except shoot–she was rushing her shots, but she is great on defense. Before years end she will be a factor.

    Sad to see a lot of empty seats tonight. Remember when the Uconn women was a hot ticket?

    Yes a good team effort a nice win against a very good opponent hopefully this will help the team as the season moves on.. wish I could have seen more of the freshman tuck and moriah but geno did what he did and banks did have a very good game..she is good..gonna be interesting with this deep team..go Uconn!!!!!

    This game tonight was the one that I’ve been expecting. 3 ball not working, Opponent packing the lane playing tough defense–if MD had a bit more depth, maybe, just maybe this would be a UConn loss.
    Dolson reacted well even positively to be pushed and mugged by Md in the paint. That bodes well for future games.
    If Geno is MOSTLY pleased with this win, he should be. They were not clicking on all cylinders but the toughed it out and defeated a very good MD team. With 11 player MD would have run this one into a win. Hard played, great play but still lucky.

  5. Ugly Win But Still A Win

    Tonight proved that in crunch time, Geno is not going to use a 10 player rotation. Despite all the hype surrounding Tuck and Jefferson, and despite KML not playing in the 2nd half, Geno stuck with who he trusts.
    The same will happen against Stanford, Duke, Notre Dame, Baylor, and in the Sweet 16.

    Kudos to Doris Burke for basically calling out Hartley. She is not a true point guard, typically chooses the wrong pass, and is more about making plays for herself. Her shots were not even close tonight, yet she kept cranking them up.

    Was it me or was Maryland trying to get Dolso ejected. They pounded her beyond normal basketball contact and the refs let too much go. Kudos to Dolson for not losing her cool.

    UConn cares too much about paint defense and not enough about perimeter defense. UConn will lose to a hot 3PT shooting team when their own shots clang of the board or rim. Stanford should have no trouble handling UConn on The Farm. If Sims is healthy and Griner is healthy, Baylor scores at will inside and outside.

    This was a spotty win but a teachable moment on the replays. UConn easly could have been up 20 at half time but many wild rushed shots inside hurt them. It was a game from last year against a good sized opponent. We seem to worry too much about a possible blocked shot then finishing shots inside.

    Breanna is stronger inside in a game like this than way out on the side lines. She finishes better than most but played only on the outside in the second half with zero impact as a result. The point blank misses the entire game were nearly all rushed shots. Finish, finish, finish! We will grow from game, not the blow outs.

    I think the talent and depth this year is just going to wear other teams down even when skills are somewhat evenly matched. You could see mid-way through the second Maryland got tired and somewhat gave it up. They also had significant foul trouble.
    On the other side – I don’t think I’ve seen a UCONN team miss everything- rim, backboard, etd. so many times in a game. If they shot normally they would have won this one by 30 also.

    1. Mark Fletcher

      Yes – if. And if UConn shoots like that on the Farm – loss number 1

    Wonder if Griner would have lost her Freddy Kool if overrated Thomas threw her to the floor like a wet rag.
