Coach Geno Auriemma said last Saturday he wanted more out of Tiffany Hayes. Tonight, he got just that.

Hayes led all scorers with 18 points and Maya Moore added 17 of her own to lead the UConn women’s basketball team to a 63-44 win at Rutgers.

A 13-0 run by the Huskies at the start of the second half propelled them to the victory of the Scarlet Knights and improved their record to 19-1 and 8-0 in the Big East. UConn also handed Rutgers its first conference loss of the season. April Sykes led the Scarlet Knights with 20 points.

The Huskies have now started a nice, little winning streak after their record-breaking 90-game win streak that concluded Dec. 30 at Stanford. UConn has won seven in a row after the Cardinal snapped its streak. The Huskies next game is Saturday afternoon at Cincinnati.
