UConn women’s basketball’s win streak hit double-digits with a 92-49 over the St. John’s Red Storm at UBS Arena on Saturday.
Ice Brady scored a career-high 17 points on an efficient 7-11 shooting with four rebounds in a breakout performance for the redshirt freshman. Paige Bueckers had a great day with 22 points from 8-9 shooting (2-2 from three) along with seven rebounds while Aaliyah Edwards recorded her seventh double-double of the season with 16 points and 10 boards.
KK Arnold only had four points, but had a team-high seven assists. Similarly, Nika Mühl filled up the stat sheet with 11 points, six assists, and four rebounds. Ashlynn Shade provided secondary scoring with 11 points.
UConn killed the hosts on the board 37-14 and had a 46-14 edge on points in the paint.
UConn got out to an early lead behind a 16-0 run in the first quarter, powered by eight points from Bueckers in that span.
St. John’s didn’t wilt early, though. The Red Storm answered with a 12-2 run to close the quarter to pull back within six. That was pretty much all the hosts had, though. By the time they scored again, the Huskies had ripped open a 37-20 lead behind 13 straight points.
At the half, UConn went up by 19, and by the time the third period ended, the gap had extended to 35. The Huskies didn’t dominate out of the locker room, but they played steady on both ends of the floor. They didn’t allow back-to-back baskets from the visitors and strung together small runs of 7-0, 8-0 and 9-0.
After an uneventful fourth quarter, UConn came away with a 43-point win. The Huskies improve to 13-3 on the season and 6-0 in conference play.
UConn’s next game is also in the New York City metro area. The Huskies will play at Seton Hall on Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. ET. SNY will broadcast the contest.
