Default Huskies dominate Sooners

By Doug Feinberg
AP Basketball Writer


UNCASVILLE, Conn. - Olivia Nelson-Ododa had 27 points, 15 rebounds and seven blocks and No. 2 UConn which was without coach Geno Auriemma routed Oklahoma 97-53 on Sunday in the Hall of Fame Women's Basketball Showcase.

The 65-year-old Auriemma missed the game after surgery Wednesday to relieve symptoms of diverticulitis, a condition where the colon develops small bulges that can sometimes become infected.

It's the 10th game Auriemma has missed in his 35-year Hall of Fame career. Associate head coach Chris Dailey took over and remained unbeaten filling in for Auriemma. She coached two conference games last season when Auriemma was out sick.

The Huskies (10-0) got off to a slow start and only led 15-11 after one. UConn was up 26-21 late in the second quarter before scoring the final eight points of the half the last two coming on a drive by Crystal Dangerfield before the buzzer after the Huskies had gotten two offensive rebounds.

UConn kept the run going to start the second half by scoring the first seven points to make it a 20-point game and turn it into a rout.

Megan Walker added 17 points and 15 rebounds for the Huskies. Dangerfield finished with 19 points.

The Huskies could move up to the top spot in the poll Monday after No. 1 Stanford lost at Texas earlier Sunday. The Huskies have been ranked first in the Top 25 a record 241 weeks. They held a slim six-point edge over No. 3 Oregon in the poll that was released this past week.

Taylor Robertson scored 24 points, hitting seven 3-pointers, to lead Oklahoma (7-5), which had won three straight coming into this game. The Sooners came into the game averaging nearly 83 points a game ninth best in the nation. They had reached 90 points in every game of their winning streak.

Coale needs to be gone ASAP, but do not see it happening.

Only when they can't give free tickets away will it happen and maybe not then.
SC must have some dirt on someone...somewhere

Please tell me she didn't actually say that.

She was asked about Taylor Robertson and was comparing her biased regard for Taylor to how parents always think their kids are cuter than anyone else's.

Here's the full quote:
"I'm probably biased. I have the cutest kids in the country and the best shooter in the country. She's terrific," Coale said of Robertson. "Love her confidence. Haven't seen a stage too big to handle."

I am afraid his self appointed uncle Syb will strongly disagree.

While I very much wish Colton weren’t on the staff, I understand what SC was saying. Taylor is on a very, very shortlist of best pure three point shooters in the country. It’s just a shame that her skill is mostly being wasted thus far in her career.
