Stat of the Game: Pts. in the Paint: UConn 42, Texas A&M 12 

Summary: The new and improved Stef Dolson is here and my firends, she is here to stay!! UConn All-American candidate Jr. C Stefanie Dolson was unstoppable in the first half scoring at will in the post (thanks to numerous, on-the-money post-entry feeds from the guards) and off the dribble no matter who was guarding her en route to 20 first-half points. She would finish the game with a career-high tying 24pts. to go along with 6r/5a/3s/1b as UConn used an early 2nd half run to blow out Texas A&M on their homecourt, 81-50. All-American candidates So. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Sr. G Kelly Faris were both solid all game adding 16p/5r/5a and 10p/2r/6a, respectively. The Huskies as a team had 27 assists on 32 made baskets and dominated the Aggies in the paint all game long. The frosh struggle in their first true road test of the season especially in the first half, but calmed down in the 2nd to each put up some respectable stats. All-American candidate Fr. F Breanna Stewart shrugged of early foul trouble to finish with 11pts. and 6rebs. including 2 three's early in the 2nd half that helped put the game out of reach for UConn. The Huskies will now head to the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Thomas) for the 2012 Paradise Jam where they will play 3 games in the days starting on Thanksgiving. All-American Jr. G Bria Hartley is still listed as questionable, but has started practicing with the team in little drills.
