HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Crystal Dangerfield scored 22 points and Megan Walker added 21 to lead top-ranked UConn to an 83-55 win over Wichita State Thursday night, giving the Huskies their 122nd win without a loss in American Athletic Conference play.
Christyn Williams had 19 points for the Huskies (11-0, 2-0 American), who have won all 104 regular-season games since the conference was formed and all six AAC tournaments.
It took some time for the Huskies to get back into the flow of their offense after a 10-day holiday break.
UConn missed its first six shots and the Shockers (8-6, 0-1) ran out to a 10-1 lead.
But Walker took over from there. She had 13 first-quarter points and UConn went on a 27-2 run to take control.
The Huskies led 22-12 after a quarter and put up the first six points of the second period.
Dangerfield handled the scoring load in the second 10 minutes with 14 points, including a pull-up jumper just before the half to give UConn a 45-26 lead. >> Read more
