A few things to wrap up another big win (88-39) for the No. 1 UConn women:
Geno Auriemma is giving the team off until Wednesday and does not expect any of his players will be tempted to work out after playing four games this week
After playing four games this week, the Huskies play just five in December.
Geno is thrilled about the great weekend of sports at UConn; his four wins, the men’s basketball team’s wins last week in New York over Boston College and Indiana, the football team’s comeback from 21-0 down at Temple to win their first game; the women’s field hockey national championship, the men’s soccer team win in the second round.
“I would say that we have one of the best group of coaches here as there is in the nation,” Auriemma said. “It sure is a lot different than when I got here [in 1985].”
Geno said he is in no hurry to get either Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis or Morgan Tuck back from their injuries. And playing Duke on Dec. 17 at Cameron Indoor isn’t going to cause him to rush the situation.
“Nope, it’s not important to me at all,” Auriemma said. “And I don’t have any expectations for either of them. I just take my que from the medical staff, and when they say they look great, that doesn’t automatically mean they are ready to start practicing again. When that time will be? I don’t know. Could be next week, more than that … I don’t know.”
Stat line of the game: Moriah Jefferson had 14 points, seven assists, five steals and six rebounds in 29 minutes. Oh yes, just one of UConn’s five turnovers.
