Neither team looked comfortable to start the game, with UConn missing a pair of threes and coughing up the ball twice. Rutgers made two of its first three shots and is moving much more fluidly on offense.
Keep this in mid: Rutgers and UConn haave both been here before. Only Rutgers knows what it has to do and what it takes to win this game, which Huskies coach Geno Auriemma has called the hardest game to win in the entire tournament.
UConn's guard play has been poor at best. Ketia Swaner and Renee Montgomery look like they are trying to force the issue against the Scarlet Knights and rarely has it worked.
At the first media timeout, Kaili McLaren has two baskets and Brittany Hunter one. UConn trails, 11-6, with 15:03 on the clock.
Tina Charles has entered, so let;s see if she can change the game.
