HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — There is not much UConn All-American Katie Lou Samuelson can't do, and that apparently that includes coaching the Huskies.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Despite a physical effort from the opposing team, UConn imposed its will on the game, outworking UCF inside and out.
Napheesa Collier was the key, getting 18 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and four steals as No. 4 UConn completed a 78-41 victory Sunday.
"Of all the players on our team, Napheesa has the best matchup on the team," coach Geno Auriemma said. "Every team we play has an impossible decision on how they are going to guard her, and she never stops."
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Napheesa Collier and UConn used a strong second half to turn their final nonconference game into a rout.
Collier had 31 points, 16 rebounds and six assists, and the fourth-ranked Huskies beat 11th-ranked South Carolina 97-79 on Monday night.
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn's Napheesa Collier is playing herself into the conversation for national player of the year.
The Huskies senior star tied a season-high with 30 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, leading the Huskies to a 109-74 rout of Temple.
Collier, who also had 30 points in a win over the Owls last month, recorded her 12th double-double of the season and 36th of her career. It was her seventh straight game with 20 or more points.
NEW YORK (AP) — Coach Geno Auriemma doesn't seem too concerned that UConn has its most losses in six years.
After all, the Huskies entered the Final Four unbeaten the last two seasons only to walk away without a national championship.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Two days later, No. 2 UConn was still feeling the sting of a troubling loss.
Senior forward Napheesa Collier scored 20 points Saturday, reached 2,000 for her career, and steadied the Huskies to a 65-55 victory over Cincinnati that was uncharacteristically challenging.
As coach Geno Auriemma reminded, this isn't a typical Huskies team.
Jeff Walz has had some really good teams at Louisville since taking over the Cardinals program in 2007.
They've made three trips to the Final Four and appeared in the title game twice. Yet in his 12 years at the school, Walz and his Cardinals never could find a way to beat UConn.
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — No. 3 UConn has been working in practice on its pressure defense, hoping to force a few more turnovers and get a few more baskets in transition.
That practice paid off Wednesday night.
Napheesa Collier scored 22 points and Katie Lou Samuelson added 21 to lead the Huskies to a 79-39 rout of SMU, the team's 107th straight victory over an American Athletic Conference opponent.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Crystal Dangerfield did it all for UConn.
Dangerfield had a career-high 26 points with nine assists and no turnovers to help lead No. 2 UConn to an 88-67 victory over Temple on Saturday.
"I would like to think that could be a typical game for Crystal, creating a lot of points for us and knocking in her share of points," Huskies coach Geno Auriemma said. "I think she was on her game tonight. She made shots, she got people shots and she managed the game. That about says it all."
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Megan Walker has been playing well this past month.
On Wednesday night, she single-handedly outscored Tulane by a point in No. 2 UConn's 75-33 rout. Walker scored a career-best 34 points in the easy victory.
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn coach Geno Auriemma sent a message to his starters on Sunday, pulling the entire group 4 ½ minutes into what was expected to be an easy win over an injury-depleted South Florida team.
The third-ranked Huskies, who trailed by as many as eight points in the first half, eventually shook off their sluggish start to beat the Bulls 63-46.
"I've got a very immature team, I think," Auriemma said. "That shows up in the inconsistency some times."
HOUSTON (AP) — Following the first regular season loss in more than four years, UConn coach Geno Auriemma didn't know how his team was going to react.
The Huskies came out with energy en route to a convincing win on Sunday.
Katie Lou Samuelson had 19 points, Napheesa Collier added 18 points and the top-ranked UConn Huskies rebounded from a rare regular-season loss with an 81-61 win over Houston.
WACO, Texas (AP) — Geno Auriemma knew that top-ranked UConn couldn't keep winning every regular-season game it played, even though the Huskies had won 126 in a row.
That winning streak of more than four years ended with a 68-57 loss Thursday night at No. 8 Baylor, which won against a No. 1 team for the first time.
NEW YORK (AP) — Muffet McGraw earned a milestone win against the school where she got her coaching start.
McGraw became the fourth-fastest coach to reach 900 victories on Sunday when No. 2 Notre Dame beat Lehigh 95-68. McGraw only needed 1,172 games to reach the milestone. Only Geno Auriemma (1,034), Pat Summit (1,072) and Tara VanDerveer (1,104) did it faster.
