Summary: Injuries have left top-ranked Connecticut with just 3 frontcourt players for the next month or so. Fortunately for the Huskies, they are 3 pretty good ones. The frontcourt trio of UConn Sr. All-American C Stefanie Dolson, So. All-American candidate F Breanna Stewart and Jr. C Kiah Stokes combined for 58 points on Friday as the Huskies routed Boston University 96-38 in the opening round of the Hall of Fame Challenge tournament. Dolson followed up the first triple-double of her career with a double-double 23-pt & 10-reb. performance against the Terriers. Stewart avoided 1st half foul trouble for the first time since the Hartford game and led the Huskies with 25 points while adding 7rebs. and 6asts. and Stokes chipped in with 10pts. and 8rebs. UConn Fr. G Saniya Chong added 15pts. off the bench and was a lights out 4 of 6 from 3pt. range.
