Summary: UConn All-American Maya Moore, who is 11 points shy of the all-time Big East scoring lead, had a career-high nine assists Saturday to lead the second-ranked Huskies to a 68-38 victory over Providence. Moore scored 11 to give her 2,769 points, 11 short of surpassing the Big East record held by Louisville's Angel McCoughtry. "To me, she's Kobe Bryant," said Providence coach Phil Seymore. Fr. Stefanie Dolson matched her career-high with 21 points as the Huskies won their 12th consecutive game since a Dec. 30 loss to Stanford ended their NCAA-record 90-game winning streak. Dolson was named the Big East rookie of the week after reaching a career-high with 21 points against DePaul last Saturday. She matched it just a week later. Moore played just 23 minutes, sitting most of the second half as Auriemma rested his starters for upcoming games against No. 14 Oklahoma on Monday and No. 8 Notre Dame next Saturday.
