STORRS, Conn. — Geno Auriemma was hoping for an early season test for his top-ranked Connecticut Huskies. He just didn’t want it to come at the price of losing his All-America forward.
Bria Hartley had 20 points, eight rebounds and six assists to help No. 1 Connecticut beat No. 3 Stanford 76-57 on Monday night.
Kiah Stokes added 10 points, 13 rebounds and six blocks for the Huskies
(2-0), who got a scare early in the second half when preseason All-America Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis went down trying for a rebound.
Auriemma wasn’t sure how badly his star was hurt.
“They are just going to keep evaluating her (today) and see how she responds,” Auriemma said.
Amber Orrange scored a career-high 22 points to lead the Cardinal (1-1).
