Kelly Faris struggled from the floor, making just one of her five field goal attempts, but dominated the boards, grabbing 11 rebounds, including nine on the defensive end. Her 11 boards marked her fifth game with double-figure rebounds. With the BIG EAST win, UConn improves to 14-0 in league play and 27-1 overall and will have a chance to win the 2010-11 Big east Regulare Season Championship on Saturday when they play at Georgetown.
