Offensive Woes Don’t Stop UConn

by Categorized: UConn women's basketball Date:

Not every game sparkles like a diamond, even for a program that knows where to find them and how to make them shine. Some days every little and big thing just seems to float and then fall. It happens.
But when it comes to No. 1 UConn, even a middle-of-the-road performance against a jacked opponent turns into a sizeable victory in the American Athletic Conference.
Such was the case Sunday when the Huskies beat South Florida 63-38 at the Sun Dome.
The Huskies (26-0) were led by Bria Hartley, who scored 18 points. Breanna Stewart added 15 points and eight rebounds as did Stefanie Dolson. Stewart needs only two more points to score 1,000th points.
Moriah Jefferson added 12 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.
The Huskies won their 32nd straight to end the Bulls’ modest two-game winning streak. But their 22 field goals tied a season-low set at Baylor. And the 63 points were a season-low, three points fewer than they scored to beat the Lady Bears on Jan. 13.
