UConn Wins In Decisive Fashion 80-51 Over Oregon State.

UConn wins 80-51. Shot percentage made the difference tonight. UConn shot 57% from the field including 53% from beyond the 3-point line. Oregon State had good looks but struggled to sink their shots, shooting only 33% from the field. Foul trouble hampered a few players with Breanna Stewart picking up 3 fouls early and OSU’s Jamie Weisner picking up 4. Weisner, who had 38 points and 10 rebounds two games ago against DePaul, was held to 9 points on 4-15 shooting. Morgan Tuck stepped up big for UConn shooting 8-13 including 4-8 from the 3-point arc. The win for UConn comes with a sad note as freshman Samuelson went out in the first half with a broken foot.
