Sr. G LeLe Hardy, Clemson
RSr. W Kalana Greene, Connecticut
So. G Tiffany Hayes, Connecticut
Jr. W Maya Moore, Connecticut
Jr. G Brittani Shells, Richmond

Summary: Well I guess a 39-pt win, is a 39-pt win, no matter how ugly. Today was easily UConn's worse game of the season. If it wasn't for a career game from Kalana Greene, who finished with a career-high 28pts. and 8r/4s/1b in 28mins. then I don't even want to know what the score might have been. After shooting lights out against Richmond, UConn couldn't hit the broad side of a barn from deep in their 87-48 victory over the Tigers. Aside from Greene's 2-2 from three, everyone else on the team was 0-for-13 from three. Somehow, they still managed to finish 54% from the field overall for the game thanks to a LOT of made lay-ups of many of the 15 steals. All-Americans Tina Charles and Maya Moore dominated inside ending with 20p/9r/1a/3b in 27mins. and 19p/4r/3a/5s/2b in 30mins., respectively. Geno rested Caroline Doty for much of the game as to not push her too hard coming off her ACL recovery and not feeling well. No one else on the team scored more than 6pts. and freshman Kelly Faris may have had the best game ever by a UConn player who didn't score a point in the same game as she went 0-for-8 but finished with 7r/5a and only one turnover in a career-high 33mins. Overall, Geno will find enough to complain about and the Huskies didn't help their cause by playing the worst in the final game of the weekend which no doubt will be the impression left fresh in his mind when practice resumes on Tuesday. As for the entire weekend, UConn pounded the less than stellar competition as expected and many players got a lot of playing time especially the freshmen. It was a good experience to see how the team could handle 3 games in 3 days which is just like the Big East Tournament with a 2-day bye.

1/1 Connecticut Huskies (5-0)

Results: Connecticut 86, Richmond 37
Player of the Game: So. G Tiffany Hayes (15p, 5r, 7a, 30m)
Defensive Player of the Game: Fr. C Heather Buck (1dr, 1s, 3b, 11m)
Freshman Player of the Game: Fr. G Kelly Faris (12p, 5r, 1a, 2s, 23m)
Stat of the Game: FT's: UConn 7-11, Richmond 0-0

Summary: It was raining three's in Gampel tonight as the Huskies hit a UConn record 10 three's in the first half last night led by Caroline Doty, who was 5-7 from deep finishing with 17p/3r/3a/1s in 29mins. UConn only committed for 4 fouls the entire game which led to no free throws for Richmond in the 86-37 victory. Tiffany Hayes had the best game of her sophomore season doing a little bit of everything as she finished with 15p/7r and a career-high 7asts. with no turnovers in 30mins. UConn All-Americans Tina Charles and Maya Moore weren't needed much and as a result both had quiet evenings finishing with 13p/5r/2a/1b in 18mins and 11p/6r/3a/2s in 29mins., respectively. Freshman Kelly Faris also had the best game of her early career coming off the bench to end up with a career-high 12pts. to go along with 5r/1a/2s in 23mins. Kaili McLaren continues to impress everyone with her passing ability. She's often so good her teammates are even expecting the beautiful feed, however, did finish the game with 4a with no turnovers and 4p/2r/1s/1b in a season-high 22mins. Overall, it was another day at the office for the UConn women imposing their intensity and will on the Spiders defensively while also shooting lights out from the floor and deep. Their one area of weakness continues to be free throw shooting. They finished 7-11 from the line for 64% and are only 73% for the season.

1/1 Connecticut Huskies (4-0)

Player of the Game: Jr. W Maya Moore (23p, 8r, 4a, 5s, 1b, 30m)
Defensive Player of the Game: Jr. W Maya Moore (5dr, 5s, 1b, 30m)
Freshman Player of the Game: Fr. G Kelly Faris (2p, 9r, 3a, 4s, 25m)
Stat of the Game: Steals: UConn 22, Hofstra 14

Summary: Congratulations Geno, on win #700!!! Once again, All-Everything Maya Moore led the charge as UConn fought off a fiesty Hofstra team finishing with 23p/8r/4a/5s/1b in 30mins. Caroline Doty chipped in with 9p and a career high 9a as the Huskies won going away, 91-46. Wo! sloppy, sloppy ball game (on both sides of the court). UConn forced Hofstra into a whopping 32 turnovers on 22 steals, but turned the ball over 23 times themselves. All-American Tina Charles dominated in the middle even though she was often double- or triple-teamed finishing with 17p/8r/1a/2s/2b in 23mins. Kalana Greene woke up after halftime scoring 12 of her 14pts. with 6 coming in the first 2mins. of the 2nd half. Overall, the game was poorly officiated which led to 36 fouls and 55 turnovers combined with many fouls not having been fouls and many turnovers resulting from no-calls. Tiffany Hayes, in particular, spent much of the game on the floor after being bumped with no call and turning the ball over as a result.  Seven of the 9 Huskies who played meaningful minutes finished the game with 3 turnovers each (KG had 4). After the game, Geno wasn't too pleased about the sloppiness, but it was easily forgotten (at least until practice next week) as the Huskies put on a little celebration in tribute to their favorite coach's 700th victory. They performed a little Mastercard "priceless" skit with posters as well as wore the student section's Geno Face t-shirts with "Congrats 700" spelled out on the back of all 11 players (then messed up his perfect hair!!).
USA Basketball Gold Medalist and UConn All-American Sr. C Tina Charles was named the 2009 USA Basketball Female Athlete of the Year today by USA Basketball. Charles was the USA's leading scorer and rebounder while helping the 2009 USA Women's World University Games Team capture a perfect record and gold medal July 2-11 in Belgrade, Serbia. She returned to the red, white and blue two months later for the 2009 USA Women's National Team training Sept. 20-Oct. 6 in Washington, D.C. Following training camp, she averaged team second-bests for points and rebounds as the only collegiate athlete on the USA Women's National Team that rolled to three straight wins and a gold medal in the 2009 Ekaterinburg International Invitational, Oct. 9-11 in Russia. Overall, Charles spent 39 days in 2009 training or competing with a USA Basketball team. USA Basketball will nominate Charles for the U.S. Olympic Committee's 2010 SportsWoman of the Year, which is expected to be announced in January of 2010. She becomes only the 2nd Husky to be honored as former UConn Great Diana Taurasi was honored in 2006.

UConn All-American Sr. C Tina Charles was named Big East Player of the Week for the first time in her career today after averaging 19.7 ppg, 11.0 rpg while shooting 56.1% from the field, and helping UConn to 3-0 record last week including a 25-pt. victory over 10/13th ranked Texas. Last week, Charles also became only the third player in UConn history to reach 1,000-career rebounds after pulling down her 5th rebound in UConn's home opener against Northeastern.

1/1 Connecticut Huskies (3-0)

Results: Connecticut 87, Holy Cross 34
Player of the Game: Jr. W Maya Moore (21p, 7r, 4a, 4s, 23m)
Defensive Player of the Game: Sr. C Tina Charles (9dr, 2s, 3b, 21m)
Freshman Player of the Game: Fr. G Kelly Faris (4p, 2r, 4a, 1s, 17m)
Stat of the Game: Pts. in the Paint: UConn 54, Holy Cross 4

Summary: UConn game out of the gates a little slow, playing down to the level of competition until All-American Maya Moore decided enough was enough scoring 13pts. on her own in a 3min, 13sec stretch to extend the Huskies' 11-pt lead out to 23. Moore would finish the game with 21p/7r/4a/4s in 23mins as UConn easily beat Holy Cross 87-34. The entire bench played in the first half and head coach Geno Auriemma pulled his starters by the 1st timeout of the 2nd half. Caroline Doty and Tina Charles were also stellar, attacking Holy Cross from the inside and out while finishing with 11p/3r/7a and 18p/9r/2s/3b, respectively. Freshmen Kelly Faris and Heather Buck also played well for UConn off the bench. Both players seem to be gaining more confidence as each game goes by and that bods well for the Huskies come Big East season. Overall, the Huskies played phenomenal defensively, ending with a season-hign 17 steals and holding the Crusaders to only 27% shooting. UConn also shared the ball tonight beautifully with 26 assists on 35 made FG's (which is almost 3 out of every 4 baskets). UConn has now won 42 consecutive games by a margin of 10 points or more as Geno earned his 699th career victory. Geno goes for win number 700 in the first game of the WBCA Classic at Gampel against Hofstra the day after Thanksgiving. With win #700, Geno will become the fastest coach in WCBB history to 700 wins as he becomes the 11th member of the 700-win club.

The UConn trio of Sr. C Tina Charles, Jr. W Maya Moore, and So. G Tiffany Hayes were three of the 50 players named to the 2009-10 Preseason Naismith Award Watch List, the Atlanta Tipoff Club announced today. Moore seeks to become the first player ever to win two Naismith trophies in high school and college. She won the Naismith National High School Girl’s Player of the Year award in both 2006 and 2007 at Collins Hill High School in Suwanee, Ga., and claimed the college award this past March.

1/1 Connecticut Huskies (2-0)

Results: Connecticut 83, Texas 58
Player of the Game: Jr. W Maya Moore (20p, 11r, 4a, 4b, 33m)
Defensive Player of the Game: Jr. W Maya Moore (9dr, 4b, 33m)
Freshman Player of the Game: Fr. G Kelly Faris (6p, 5r, 4a, 3s, 28m)
Stat of the Game: Pts. in the Paint: UConn 44, Texas 24

Summary: Well that was quite unexpected. I don't even think Geno expected a 25-pt victory over 10/13th-ranked Texas in Texas. But that's exactly what happened, as UConn defeated Texas 83-58. At one point, the lead got as high as 35pts. UConn's defense was stiffling holding Texas to 26% shooting in the 1st half and 32% for the game. In a foul-plagued game, All-Americans Maya Moore and Tina Charles were their usual selves. Maya got to the line a career-high 11 times (now that is what I'm talking about), hitting her first 10 on her way to a 20p/11r night. Tina added a double-double of her own with 15p/11r in only 18mins of play. Turnovers were a little problem, but outside of that every UConn player who played in the 1st 30 minutes of the game played well on both ends of the court. All 5 UConn starters finished in double figures and freshman Kelly Faris turned in a nice all-around performance and was seemingly everywhere on the court finishing with 6p/5r/4a/3s in 28mins. Senior F Kaili McLaren made her season debut with some phenomenal no-look passes and again proved why many say she is the BEST passing post in America. If only she played every game like it was her last, she would play more than 11mins and would easily be an All-Big East Second Teamer. Lastly, Geno is now only two games away from becoming the 8th member of the women's 700-win club.

1/1 Connecticut Huskies (1-0)

Results: Connecticut 105, Northeastern 35
Player of the Game: Sr. C Tina Charles (26p, 13r, 2a, 18m)
Defensive Player of the Game: Sr. W Meghan Gardler (2dr, 2s, 1b, 26m)
Freshman Player of the Game: RFr. F Heather Buck (4p, 12r, 1s, 21m)
Stat of the Game: Halftime: UConn 69 (Team Record), Northeastern 15

Summary: Just prior to tip-off the 6th NCAA Title Banner was unveiled, but the defending National Champs wasted no time letting the "other" Huskies know who's Home of the Huskies it was; jumping out to a 28-0 lead after 5 & 1/2 mins of play. All-American C Tina Charles dominated in just 18mins of play scoring 26p/13r and National Player of the Year W Maya Moore was her usual self, quietly pouring in 18p/10r/5a/1s in 25mins of play as UConn defeated Northeastern by 70, 105-35. Shorthanded with Dixon (hamstring) and McLaren (ankle) out of the game, the bench played early and often. Redshirt Freshman F Heather Buck made her collegiate debut finishing with 4p/12r/1s in 21mins of action. She certainly showed signs of a great future, once she gains more confidence. Her freshman counterpart, G Kelly Faris, had a quiet, typical freshmen debut, but showed she belongs. The starting backcourt of G Tiffany Hayes and G Caroline Doty played well with both running the point at different times during the game combining for 24p/7r/11a/4s and 8 to's. W Kalana Greene became the 33rd member of the UConn 1000-pt club after scoring her first basket of the day on a beautiful jump-stop, up and under move. Charles also made history today after grabbing her 5th rebound of the day by joining the elite duo of Rebecca Lobo and Jamelle Elliott as only the 3rd Husky to have 1000pts. and 1000rebs. Congrats KG and Tina Baby!!!! Simply put Northeastern had absolutely no answer for any UConn player today. They scored ever which way possible en route to a 69-pt. halftime score which is a UConn team record for points in ANY half. Every player scored and all the starters scored in double figures. Off the bench, both W Meghan Gardler and G Jacquie Fernandes played a career high in minutes tallying 10p/3r/2a/2s/1b in 26 mins and 4p/5r/2a in 24mins, respectively.

1/1 Connecticut Huskies (0-0)

Results: Connecticut 98, Vanguard 68
Player of the Game: Jr. W Maya Moore (33p, 8r, 1a, 4s, 2b, 31m)
Defensive Player of the Game: Jr. W Maya Moore (4dr, 4s, 2b, 31m)
Freshman Player of the Game: Fr. G Kelly Faris (9p, 3r, 5a, 1s, 3b, 27m)
Stat of the Game: Rebounds: UConn 38, Vanguard 37

Summary: The Huskies made quick hast of Vanguard jumping out to a 14-0 lead with only 4 minutes gone by on its way to a 98-68 victory over Vanguard. Once again they were led by All-Americans Moore and Charles who finished with 33/8 and 16/11, respectively. Tonight Dixon got off to a much better start, but was derailed by a strained hamstring while going up for a fast break lay-up. She did not return to the game and is listed as questionable for this Saturday's game against Northeastern. The guards shot much better this game and combined UConn hit 15-34 3-pt shots.  Hayes rebounded from a poor outing last exhibition game to finish with 15p, 3a, and 3s, but had 6 turnovers as she took over point guard duties for most of the remainder of the game after Dixon's injury. She looks good running the point and has a decent handle, however it is clear she needs much more experience 1. learning how to get the ball to players in their sweet spots, 2. picking and choosing when to thread the needle, drive to the rim, or shoot the ball, and 3. being a vocal leader. On defense, Vanguard kept the Huskies on their heels with their ability to shoot quickly and penetrate using a jap-step. Many times the Lions were able to beat their perimeter defenders off the dribble and get to the rim or pull up for a short jumper (For once, UConn could really learn something from an opponent on offense since it is a very effective offense weapon--hint, hint KG). Coach Auriemma will surely point that out during film session and firmly voice his displeasure. Overall, another day at the office for the Huskies. It was nice to see Maya being so offensively selfish as well as getting to the FT line. Clearly, Geno proved in these two exhibition games that she and the rest of the first 7 will be counted on a lot this season to play a ton of minutes even against lesser opponents. It will be important for players like Gardler and McLaren (and eventually Buck) to give it their all every second they're on the court and hopefully they can crack into the normal rotation instead of playing just breather/garbage minutes.

1/1 Connecticut Huskies (0-0)

Results: Connecticut 85, St. Rose 44
Player of the Game: Jr. W Maya Moore (19p, 7r, 6a, 5s, 2b, 24m)
Defensive Player of the Game: Jr. W Maya Moore (1dr, 5s, 2b, 24m)
Freshman Player of the Game: Fr. G Kelly Faris (14p, 2r, 4a, 3s, 25m)
Stat of the Game: 2nd Chance Pts.: UConn 35, St. Rose 8

Summary: All-Americans Moore and Charles picked up right where they left off in the 2009 Title Game help UConn defeat top DII program St. Rose scoring 19/7 and 14/11, respectively. True Freshman Faris made her career debut and Doty returned from last seasons ACL injury without batting an eye. Faris came off the bench and was very impressive. She quickly established herself as a defensive nightmare and very-sound offensive threat. The future looks bright for #34. Doty looked unfazed in her first real game in over 10 months and finished with 11/6 in 20 solid minutes off the bench. The Huskies backcourt had a terrible shooting night only hitting 7 of 29 3's specifically Hayes who only finished with 3pts. on 1-11 shooting (1-9 from deep). Dixon looked more confident, but struggled as the starting point guard. Moore still needs to learn how to create more contact in order to put more pressure on the refs to blow the whistle and ultimately get to the free throw line much, much more (like 10-12 times a night). The Huskies as a team didn't get to the line much tonight as the refs only blew 23 times combined, but they didn't execute well when they did get there only hitting 6 of 12 FT's (neither Moore or Charles got to the line). Charles, Greene, and Dixon are great in the paint, but have to expand their range (especially Dixon). Geno and staff are not likely very pleased and the players won't be satisfied after watching the game film. Overall, a decent outing by the defending National Champs. The expectations are high in Storrs, and clearly, much more improvement is needed.

Moore History:

Today Jr. All-American SF Maya Moore was named as an unanimous selection to the 2009-10 Preseason AP All-America Team along with fellow UConn teammate and Sr. All-American C Tina Charles. Moore received all 40 media votes and becomes the 7th player in WCBB history to be selected unanimously to the preseason AP All-America team. And for the fifth time in WCBB history, two teammates from the university were selected to the preseason team.  It's the third time two Huskies have been on the preseason team as Jen Rizzotti and Kara Wolters were named in 1995-96 and Shea Ralph and Svetlana Abrosimova were named in 2000-01. Rizzotti and Wolters were first-team All-Americans after the season, too (OTH, Ralph and Abrosimova both ended the season with injuries).
