No. 1 UConn women rout No. 8 Maryland 72-55

College Park, Md. — Breanna Stewart scored 26 points, and top-ranked UConn showed its depth and quickness against No. 8 Maryland in a 72-55 victory on Friday night.

The short-handed Huskies (3-0) used a 13-2 run early in the second half to take a 56-45 lead, and Maryland (2-1) never get closer than nine points.

It was Connecticut’s second win over a Top 10 team in a five-day span. The Huskies breezed past No. 3 Stanford by 19 points on Monday.

Alyssa Thomas had 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Terrapins, who lost to UConn twice last season — on the road and in the NCAA tournament.

In this one, Connecticut was without two of its best players, preseason All-American Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (elbow) and sophomore forward Monica Tuck (knee surgery).
