UConn knocks off DePaul in Big East quarterfinals

– Connecticut is tough to beat when either its guards or its post players are having a good night. When both are clicking, it’s usually a rout.

Breanna Stewart scored 21 points to lead a balanced offense Sunday and the third-ranked Huskies bounced back from their loss to Notre Dame with a 94-61 win over DePaul in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament on Sunday night.

Stefanie Dolson and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis each added 16 points for the Huskies (28-3), who have won 16 consecutive Big East tournament games. Five UConn players reached double figures.

The Huskies hit 12 shots from behind the arc and outscored DePaul 46-14 in the paint.

“That’s when you know you’ve played well, when you get that kind of balance,” UConn coach Geno Auriemma said.
