3/3 Connecticut Huskies (17-2, 6-1 BE)

Results: Connecticut 88, DePaul 44
Player of the Game: Fr. W Kaleena M. Lewis (25p, 7r, 1s, 1b, 22m)
Def. Player of the Game: Jr. G Kelly Faris (4dr, 3s, 2b, 25m)
Fr. Player of the Game: Fr. W Kaleena M. Lewis (25p, 7r, 1s, 1b, 22m)
Stat of the Game: Bench Pts.: UConn 46, DePaul 9

Summary: Led by Fr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and her 25pts., UConn started the game on fire and it was over before the first timeout as the Huskies doubled-up DePaul, 88-44. What was supposed to be a tough game was quickly over as UConn shot 54% and recieved 18-1st half pts. from Mosqueda-Lewis. DePaul's leading scorer Jr. G Anna Martin, who came in averaging a team-high 19.2 points, missed all six shots and was held scoreless by the brilliant defense of Jr. G Kelly Faris (aided in the 2nd half by Fr. G Brianna Banks). About the only downer for the Huskies was Jr. G Caroline Doty leaving after playing just 2 minutes because her troublesome left knee swelled up. She's torn the anterior-cruciate ligament three times, so it probably wasn't too surprising that it acted up with the Huskies playing their fourth game in eight days.

UConn Head Coach Geno Auriemma wasn't concerned, saying, "There's no alarm at all."
