UConn is a remarkable program, so much better than everyone else, on a such a consistent basis, that you wonder how those who care to compete with them deal with it..
There isn’t a lot more to say after UConn’s 96-38 win over Boston University except the Huskies are 6-0 and looking at 31-0, unless Duke or Louisville can figure things out.
Brianna Banks played just 17 minutes because Geno Auriemma said someone stepped on her foot in the Oregon game and it was a bit sore.
Sophomore walk-on Briana Pulido apparently was getting on Auriemma’s nerves this week because she wasn’t passing the ball enough in practice. Geno said he told her if she got an assist, he would buy her a car. Pulido got an assist. “Now, she wants a car,” Auriemma said.
Breanna Stewart scored 25 points with seven rebounds, six assists and four blocks. She played only 30 minutes because Auriemma benched her briefly for taking a bad shot.
“It’s tough for someone like her to clear her head, because there isn’t anything in it,” Auriemma joked. Yup, Stewie has 53 points in her last 2 games.
Glastonbury’s Courtney Latham drained a first-half three to give Boston University a 5-4 lead. She did not score again. In fact, after the score was 7-7, Boston was outscored 89-31 in the final 34 minutes.
UConn outscored BU, 52-8, in the paint. That’s called two coats. The Huskies have scored 210 points the last 2 games. That’s almost as good as Oregon.
Saniya Chong had another 15 points and no turnovers in 24 minutes. Chong has four turnovers in 124 minutes this season.
See you tomorrow against 0-4 Monmouth. Don’t be late.
