Summary: Top-ranked  and undefeated UConn has been banged up, but barely challenged while playing 10 games in the first month of the season. UConn All-American Sr. G Bria Hartley scored 20 of her 25 points before halftime as the undefeated Huskies finished that stretch by routing UC Davis, 97-37. She outscored UC Davis 20-17 by herself in the first half and finished the game 8 of 9 from the floor during the game, including all five she attempted from 3-point range. UConn All-American candidate So. F Breanna Stewart added 19 points, 13 rebounds and five assists which was playing with just six scholarship players because of injuries due to Jr. C Kiah Stokes being out after turning an ankle in practice Wednesday. It was the Huskies' final tuneup before a showdown on Dec. 17 with No. 2 Duke. The Huskies used an early 22-0 run to break this game open and led by 43 points at halftime. Hartley became the 19th player at UConn to reach 1,500 points in her career.
