Summary: It's been 21 years and counting since the UConn Huskies lost a regular-season tournament. The undefeated Huskies have won 52 consecutive in-season tournament games with the last loss coming in 1992 to Vanderbilt. UConn Sr. All-Americans G Bria Hartley and C Stefanie Dolson led the way with 17pts./4asts./4stls. and 15pts./13rebs., respecticely as the Huskies pulled away in the 2nd half to beat Ohio State, 70-49, to win the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame Challenge. UConn was a bit rusty at the start against Ohio State. It's no surprise with the Huskies coming off a much-needed seven-day break, having played four games in five days. But Jr. G Brianna Banks sparked the Huskies and finished with a season-high 12pts. and 7rebs.
