Feb. 15, 2010
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Tiffany Hayes scored 20 points, Maya Moore added 18 points and 10 rebounds and top-ranked Connecticut got a rare second-half scare before pulling away to beat No. 11 Oklahoma 76-60 Monday night and extend its unbeaten streak to 65 straight games.
Making their last foray outside Big East play before the postseason, the Huskies (26-0) trailed in the second half for only the second time this season, but Moore had six points during a 13-2 response as UConn regained control.
Oklahoma (18-7) rallied back from a 14-point, first-half deficit and led with 16 minutes left before Connecticut clamped down and started forcing the Sooners to settle for jump shots.
Danielle Robinson scored 18 points to lead Oklahoma, and Amanda Thompson added 16 points and 13 rebounds.
