Moore recorded 34 points, 11 rebounds and six assists against 9/13 DePaul. Moore was 14-of-16 from the field against the Blue Demons. Moore, who now leads the country in scoring at 24.5ppg also made nine of her 10 attempts from the charity stripe last week. Moore became the NCAA all-time record-holder with 135 career double-figure scoring games. UConn teammate Fr. Stefanie Dolson was named the Big East Freshman of the Week for the first time in her career after she averaged 14.5ppg and 9.0rpg and shot 72.2 percent from the field to key the Huskies’ two victories over 3/3 Duke and 9/13 DePaul.
