No. 8 UConn women’s basketball pounds No. 20 Maryland, 80-48

No. 8 UConn women’s basketball got back in the win column with a hard-fought 80-48 victory over the No. 20 Maryland Terrapins in front of a sold-out crowd at Gampel Pavilion on Thursday night.

After an embarrassing showing in the loss to NC State, the Huskies’ defense bounced back with a lockdown effort. Led by Paige Bueckers (six steals), KK Arnold (five steals), and Aubrey Griffin (four blocks), UConn forced 27 turnovers and held Maryland to just 26 percent shooting on the night.

On the other end, Bueckers scored a game-high 24 points, Aaliyah Edwards (12 points), KK Arnold (12), and Ashlynn Shade (10) each finished in double-figures, and the nine other Huskies who played before the final minutes recorded at least a point.
