Sometimes games against a lesser opponent is what's needed for a team, especially one trying to find its identity after having Maya Moore for four years. It also allows UConn Huskies head coach Geno Auriemma to play different lineups to see what he's got in case it's ever needed. That's exactly what Auriemma was able to do on Tuesday night against the Pacific Tigers. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis led six Huskies in double figures with 25 points in their 112-53 win over the Tigers in front of 6,067 at Gampel Pavilion on campus in Storrs, CT.

Young Huskies Prepare for Pacific

Just two games into the season and Jim Calhoun has already called his team selfish. It's most likely a motivational ploy intended to bring his young squad together now so when they'll be prepared once they're in the thick of the Big East schedule.
