HOUSTON (AP) Following the first regular season loss in more than four years, UConn coach Geno Auriemma didn't know how his team was going to react.
The Huskies came out with energy en route to a convincing win on Sunday.
Katie Lou Samuelson had 19 points, Napheesa Collier added 18 points and the top-ranked UConn Huskies rebounded from a rare regular-season loss with an 81-61 win over Houston.
"I thought we were in a little bit of a hurry sometimes on the offensive end to make things happen quicker than they were happening, but once we settled in, I thought that second quarter, we played some great basketball," Auriemma said. "We got a couple really good players that understand what needs to be fixed and we got better at some things that we weren't so good at the other night."
Megan Walker had 14 points and seven rebounds, Crystal Dangerfield had 13 points and six assists and Christyn Williams had 12 points for UConn (12-1, 1-0 American), which had its streak of 126 consecutive regular-season wins snapped in a 68-57 loss to No. 8 Baylor on Thursday. >> Read More
