No. 2 UConn blows out No. 14 Oklahoma

By Colin McDonough, Senior Staff Writer

The No. 2 UConn women’s basketball team beat No. 14 Oklahoma 86-45 at the XL Center in Hartford.

Maya Moore passed former Louisville star Angel McCoughtry in the first half to become the Big East all-time leading scorer. Moore finished the easy victory with points while Stefanie Dolson dropped 15 and Tiffany Hayes scored 13 points against the outmatched Sooners. At one point in the first half Oklahoma was down 31-6. The Sooners were held to 29.7 percent from the floor and the Huskies’ defense forced 17 turnovers. Although UConn had 16 turnovers themselves, Oklahoma had no chance of any sort of comeback.

Both teams honored Kay Yow’s Cancer Fund on this Valentine’s Day. UConn had pink trim while Oklahoma went all out and sported pink uniforms and sneakers. Many fans wore pink to promote breast cancer research and cancer survivors were honored during the game.

UConn’s next contest will be Saturday when the Huskies welcome No. 8 Notre Dame to Gampel Pavilion in Storrs. With another ranked team up next, we’ll see if they stand a chance on UConn’s home floor. The Sooners clearly did not.
