UConn outruns Oregon 114-68 behind Dolson's triple-double
HARTFORD, Conn. -- Stefanie Dolson recorded the second triple-double in Connecticut history, with a career-high 26 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists as the top-ranked Huskies ran away from Oregon 114-68 on Wednesday night.
Brenna Stewart had 28 points and eight rebounds and Bria Hartley added 17 points, six rebounds, and six assists for UConn (5-0).
Freshman Chrishae Rowe had 27 for the Ducks (2-2), just over her season average.
The Huskies never trailed. They used a 13-2 run to open up an early 18-point lead and ran away from there.
Oregon coach Paul Westhead had his run-and-gun team averaging almost 110 points a game this season. But the Huskies held the Ducks to 31 percent shooting, blocked 12 shots and outscored Oregon in the paint 64-28.
The only other triple-double in UConn history was recorded by Laura Lishness in 1989.
Coach Geno Auriemma played Dolson late into the second half to get the milestone. She passed the ball to Kiah Stokes for a short jumper with 1:20 left to record her 10th assist and got another one on a jumper by walk-on Birana Pulido a few seconds later.
The most points Connecticut has ever scored in a game is 126, in 1998 against Providence. The Huskies seemed poise to challenge that early, putting up 62 in the first half against the Ducks.
NORMAN, Okla. -- Aaryn Ellenberg scored 24 points, freshman Derica Wyatt added 23 - hitting seven 3-pointers- and No. 10 Oklahoma routed Texas-Arlington 99-46 on Wednesday night.
Ellenberg went 4-of-12 from 3-point range for Oklahoma (4-1) and her first 3-pointer of the game was the 300th of her career. But she was upstaged by Wyatt, a freshman who didn't even play in the Sooners' two most recent games, against Gonzaga and Louisville.
Wyatt, who entered the game 1-of-5 this season from behind the arc, didn't miss on five 3-point attempts in the first half as Oklahoma built a 52-19 lead over Texas-Arlington (0-5).
Oklahoma, which entered the game shooting 24 percent from 3-point range, finished 14-of-33 (42 percent) against the Mavericks. The Sooners shot 48 percent overall.
Briana Walker led Texas-Arlington with 13 points while Laila Suleiman and Desherra Nwanguma scored 12 each and Tahlia Pope had six points and 14 rebounds. The Mavericks, in their first season in the Sun Belt Conference, committed 34 turnovers.
