Stat of the Game: 3-Pt. Shooting: UConn 12-25, Syracuse 4-14

Summary: The only way to some it up was...homegirl was on phi-ah (fire)!!! UConn All-American candidate Sr. G Tiffany Hayes light up the Carrier Dome scoring a career-high 35pts. on a career-high six 3-pters. as the Huskies turned a 7-pt half-time lead into a 41-pt. blowout and easily defeating Syracuse, 95-54. Fr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis received her first career start (in place of injured Jr. G Caroline Doty) and finished with 19pts. and 8rebs. while UConn All-American candidate So. G Bria Hartley chipped in 18pts. and 7asts. for the 3rd-ranked Huskies. Fr. C Kiah Stokes had a solid game off the bench adding 8pts., 7rebs., and 3blks. in a career-high 24mins. Doty, who left the DePaul game after playing just 2 minutes because her troublesome left knee swelled, did not play against Syracuse because of a minor bone bruise in the knee, but is probable for Saturday's game at home against South Florida. It was "Pack the House" night at the Carrier Dome with tickets set at $2 apiece, and among the school-record 4,357 fans was local star Breanna Stewart, the top prospect in the nation. The 6'4 Sr. F/C at Cicero-North Syracuse High School announced last February that she was headed to UConn, and she wanted a firsthand look at her future team.
