Summary: Let's face facts people, 18 three's made in one game by 7 different players no matter who the opponent, is just plain sick. Especially when you are playing without your All-American PG Bria Hartley. Without the "eldest" Bree (ankle) for the 2nd game, it was the "other" Bree's, Fr. F Bree Stewart and So. G Bree Banks, who helped UConn pull away late in the 1st half to turn the game into a blowout. Each scored 21 and 20 pts., respectively as the Huskies steam-rolled the Tigers 119-50. Now the team turns its attention to the "real" season as they begin their quest for their 8th NCAA Championship against the College of Charleston on Sun., Nov. 11th at 1:30pm ET on their new network, SNY.
