Sox and Dawgs:
The DePaul Blue Demons had a tough time getting to Storrs, CT on Sunday for their matchup with the UConn Huskies. They didn't get to Gampel Pavilion until just over an hour before tipoff.
And even though they're really good friends, DePaul coach Doug Bruno probably wishes his team just stayed back in Chicago.
The Huskies got out to a quick start and never looked back as they cruised to a 91-44 win over the Blue Demons in front of 8,861 fans and a nationally televised audience on ESPNU.
UConn improves to 22-1 (9-1 Big East) while DePaul falls to 17-7 (6-4).
Stefanie Dolson led the way for the Huskies with 23 points and six assists while pulling down five rebounds. Bria Hartley was the only other Husky in double-digits with 18 points and seven rebounds.
Breanna Stewart added nine points and a team-high nine rebounds while Kiah Stokes had eight points and eight rebounds. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis chipped in with eight points and seven rebounds.
