The Huskies ran away with tonight's game, 80-34, but the big note here is that Charde Houston, playing 12 minutes, had six points, five rebounds and a steal.

It will be interesting to hear what Geno Auriemma has to say shortly.
Mel Thomas is five points away from 1,000 for her career. She has 14 so far with 9:20 to play in the game
The team is back from the Virgin Islands and ready to get back to business at the Civic Center. Tonight BYU comes in and should be easy fodder for the Huskies.

Keep an eye out for Charde Houston, who has been in the dog house, no pun intended. Don't expect her to start tonight. When she does come off the bench, if Houston can't show that her head is in the game, don't expect to see much of her even in a blowout.

Stonington High School's Heather Buck signed her national letter of intent today, joining three others in UConn's class of 2008.

“I’m shaking,” Buck said moments after signing. “I’m really excited. During last period, around 1:50 (p.m.) or so, I started getting butterflies. It’s just really exciting now that it’s officially official.”

Reportedly, the Huskies have received two leters thus far.

Huskies coach Geno Auriemma can't discuss each player until the letters of intent have arrived.
