Five players scored in double figures as UConn extended its NCAA-record home winning streak to 93 games. All-American candidate Sr. G Tiffany Hayes had 13 points, Fr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis added 12, and RJr. G Caroline Doty chipped in 11.

"There were a lot of knockdowns, a lot of takedowns in this game today," UConn Head Coach Geno Auriemma said. "There is a lot of ice right now in the locker room."
