HARTFORD, Conn. – Stefanie Dolson has gotten to the point in her UConn career where she expects to be the best post player on the court, no matter who she is facing.
The junior center scored a career-high 25 points Saturday to lead No. 3 Connecticut to an 87-62 win over Syracuse and its star center Kayla Alexander, handing the upstart Orange just their second loss of the season.
Dolson, who hit nine of her 17 shots, also became the 36th player in UConn history to reach 1,000 points for her career.
When you go out there and you know you have a great post to go against; it’s something you take personal, Dolson said.
Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis also had 25 points and freshman Breanna Stewart added 20 for the Huskies (16-1, 4-1 Big East).
Carmen Tyson-Thomas had 12 points to lead Syracuse (15-2, 3-1).
No. 1 BAYLOR 76, WEST VIRGINIA 58: In Waco, Texas, Brittney Griner had her 50th career double-double, scoring 26 points with 15 rebounds and nine blocked shots as the Bears (16-1, 6-0 Big 12) won their 28th consecutive regular-season conference game.
No. 16 OKLAHOMA 69, TEXAS 56: In Norman, Okla., Aaryn Ellenberg scored 22 points to lead the Sooners (15-3, 5-1 Big 12).
Joanna McFarland scored 15 points and Nicole Griffin scored 10 for Oklahoma.
