UConn rolls, but Hayes is injured

HARTFORD, Conn. — Bria Hartley scored a career-high 24 and added eight rebounds to help No. 2 UConn defeat Louisville 78-55 Saturday, the Huskies' 71st consecutive home win.

Connecticut lost guard Tiffany Hayes 46 seconds into the game. The Huskies' second-leading scorer left with a mild concussion after she collided with teammate Maya Moore going for a loose ball near midcourt. The junior hit her head hard on the floor and was helped up, having trouble keeping her balance.

A 12-2 second-half run broke open a close game.

Moore led UConn (16-1, 6-0 Big East) with 26 points.

"You want to go out and show coach (Geno Auriemma) that he can depend on me, that I can be a leader on the floor, work hard all the time," Hartley said.
