USA - UConn starts hunt for sixth title


NEW YORK (NCAA Women's) -


The No. 2 Huskies are seeking to win their sixth national title, and their first since a run of three straight came to an end after the 2004 season.

They are as well stocked this year as they have been since that last title, and showed just why as freshman Maya Moore led the scorers with 31 points in just 19 minutes off the bench.

Moore scored 22 points on 11 of 12 shooting in the first half alone, giving the Huskies a 47-20 advantage at the break.

They then used a 16-2 run at the start of the second half to put this one in the bank.

Indiana State can celebrate their first ever win over a Top 25 opponent after pulling out a 77-72 victory over No. 17 Vanderbilt in overtime.

Kelsey Luna was the star of the show with 22 points and 10 rebounds while Laura Rudolphi added 17 points and Maria Olsthoorn 12 for Indiana State (2-0).

Christina Wirth had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Lady Commodores (2-1), who lost despite a 44-32 edge on the backboards. Liz Sherwood added 19 points and Jennifer Risper had 12 and 13 rebounds for Vanderbilt.

No. 16 Ohio State had no such problems in demoloshing Tennessee State 88-41. Jantel Lavender led the way with 23 points for the Buckeyes, who got 26 points from 14 first-half turnovers.

No. 12 George Washington got 29 points from Jessica Adair and 24 from Antelia Parrish in a 75-65 win over Kentucky.

Reserve Erica Rivera scored eight points and Kimberly Beck and Sarah-Jo Lawrence each handed out six assists for the Colonials (3-0), who have won 15 straight home games.
