HARTFORD, Conn. -- Stefanie Dolson said Tuesday she wasn't concerned that her scoring was down to the start the season since she was doing other things to help the University of Connecticut women's basketball team win.
Not only did the senior All-American center do the other things Wednesday, she got her points across and made history.
Dolson recorded UConn's second triple-double and first in almost 25 years Wednesday, finishing with 26 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists as the top-ranked Huskies rolled to a 114-68 win over Oregon before 7,961 at the XL Center.
UConn had not had a triple-double since Laura Lishness did it (14 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists) in the Big East tournament final against Providence on March 5, 1989, at Walsh Gymnasium in South Orange, N.J.
Dolson recorded her 10th assist and the triple-double with 1:21 left when Kia Stokes buried an eight-foot jumper.
Breanna Stewart led the Huskies (5-0) with 28 points. Bria Hartley had 17 points and Moriah Jefferson had 14. Kiah Stokes had a double-double of 12 points and 13 rebounds. Brianna Banks, in her first start, had 10 points.
UConn jumped out to a 13-2 lead. Oregon got it back to single figures at 19-10 but UConn responded with nine straight points -- a 3-pointer by Saniya Chong and six straight points by Dolson -- to double its lead. The Huskies closed the half on a 14-4 run to take their biggest lead of the period, 62-35, to the locker room. The Ducks got no closer than 25 in the second half.
Chrishae Rowe had 24 points for Oregon (2-2).
