COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Stefanie Dolson scored 24 points to lead No. 2 Connecticut to a 81-50 romp of No. 16 Texas A&M on Sunday.
The Huskies (2-0) hammered the Aggies (0-3) in the paint 42-12, as A&M had no answer for the 6-foot-5 Dolson, a preseason All-Big East first team selection, and forwards Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (16 points) and Breanna Stewart (11 points) down low.
Courtney Walker led A&M with 20 points, the only Aggie to score in double figures.
The Huskies continually worked the ball around the perimeter and inside, in tallying 27 assists to the Aggies' 14.
UConn is likely to slide into the top ranking after defending national champion Baylor fell to No. 4 Stanford 71-69 in the first game of the Rainbow Wahine Classic in Hawaii on Friday.
A&M had fewer turnovers (15 To UConn's 17), but the Huskies outscored the Aggies 14-5 off turnovers. The Aggies shot a season-low 30 percent (18 of 60), while UConn countered with 56.1 percent (32 of 57) from the field.
The youthful Aggies, the 2011 national champions, have lost to three top-10 teams this season in Louisville, Penn State and now UConn.
