Ever seen a fast break that focused on getting open looks from behind the arc instead of layups? After watching last night's Marquette-Connecticut game, I have.
It was less than fun.
The Huskies shot 10-13 behind the arc in the first half, including perfect records from Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (5-5) and Caroline Doty (3-3). This was the major reason why they had a 62-17 lead at the break. In case you were wondering, yes, that is a season high for a halftime score for UConn.
Here's some highlights from BigEast.org so you can see what I'm talking about with the Huskies' fast break:
Abbie Willenborg Player Of The Game: Chelsie Butler, because she didn't contribute to Marquette's 22 turnovers.
Clare Barnard Undersung Eagle Of The Game: Little used reserve Margeaux Dupuy played 16 minutes, which is pretty much the definition of undersung.
Up Next: Anything else, please. In this specific case, it's a trip to Villanova on Sunday afternoon.
