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. Megan Rogowski led the Blue Demons with 12 points. Jasmine Penny added eight points and a team-high six rebounds, a total she shared with Brittany Hrynko. The Huskies started out fast with a 15-3 run to start the game. Behind Dolson, they continued to build their lead as they took a 52-27 at the break. They opened up the half with a 17-4 run to start the second half putting the game way out of reach. Look folks, DePaul isn't a bad team. They are battling injuries and played without their best player Anna Martin who was sidelined with a knee injury. The good thing about the blowout for UConn is that it gives the bench an opportunity to get more minutes. This is especially good for players like Moriah Jefferson, Stokes and Morgan Tuck who will be counted on as the season winds down. The Huskies won't have much downtime as they head across state lines on Tuesday night for a matchup with the Providence Friars. Tip is scheduled for 7 p.m. To continue reading, please click on the continue reading button below if you're on the home page.
