  • HARTFORD, Conn. Air Max 98 Mujer Rosa . -- UConn eased past Chattanooga to stretch its winning streak to 80 games and that has coach Geno Auriemma concerned.Napheesa Collier scored 23 points to lead the nations No. 2-ranked team to an 80-43 rout of the Mocs on Tuesday night.Katie Lou Samuelson added 19 points for the Huskies and the two sophomores combined to hit 19 of their 30 shots from the field.UConn has won 127 of their last 128 games and 52 straight at home.But Auriemma said he hopes those streaks will be tested when the Huskies face No. 15 DePaul on Thursday and four other top-25 teams in December .Cause we need to get our ass beat and soon and bad, so that some of our guys will come to realize that this is not as easy as they think it is, Auriemma said.UConn (5-0) led by just 12 points at halftime, before holding Chattanooga scoreless for more than 8 minutes during an 18-0 third quarter run. That gave the Huskies a 61-33 lead and put the game out of reach. The Mocs had just 12 points after intermission.Collier said she agrees with her coach that the Huskies didnt play tough enough in the first half, something that could come back to bite them in the coming weeks.Hopefully it doesnt take a loss to wake us up, she said.Gabby Williams scored 11 points and had 10 rebounds, the second straight game she has reached double figures both points and rebounds and the 11th double-double of her career.Four players finished with nine points for Chattanooga (3-6), including Chelsey Shumpert, who sat out the Mocs last two games with an ankle injury.UConn dominated underneath, outscoring Chattanooga 48-16 in the paint, and outrebounding the Mocs 44-32.The Huskies played without freshman point guard Crystal Dangerfield, who missed the game with concussion-like symptoms after bumping her head in UConns win over Dayton a week ago. Auriemma said she still needs to pass several parts of her concussion protocol before being cleared to play against DePaul.THE BIG PICTUREUConn: Without Dangerfield, the Huskies had to rely more on senior guard Sanaya Chong and junior Kia Nurse to run the offense. Nurse had 12 points and dished out four of UConns 21 assists. Chong finished with three points and five assists.UConns winning streak is just the third 80-game streak in Division I basketball history, behind only its own program record of 90 straight from 2008-10 and the UCLA mens record of 88 consecutive victories from 1971-74.Chattanooga: Coach Jim Foster has put his team through a tough non-conference schedule that included losses to teams such as Florida, Indiana and Louisville. The Mocs play top-ranked Notre Dame next month and must guard against losing confidence while dropping games to the bigger names in womens college basketball.I think in the long run it has to help because you have to learn to play hard every night, Foster said. The program has had success within of the framework of our conference and getting to the NCAA Tournament, but it hasnt had success winning in the NCAA Tournament. Playing more teams that are going to be playing in March, you get an idea of what you have to be like.POLL IMPLICATIONS:UConns ranking likely wont be affected by this game. Barring any upsets, they should stay where they are until the Dec. 7 showdown with top-ranked Notre Dame in South Bend.HE SAID IT:Auriemma said hes coached several teams that had the ability to dominate all competition and others that won because they refused to back down from anyone under any circumstances.We gave up like eight layups in the first five minutes of the game, so were not that, he said. And yet we dont have that kind of talent that blows you away, like weve had in the past. So, that means that every single minute of every day, every practice, every game, theyve got to be tough, hard-nosed and I mean really tough. And thats hard to do.UP NEXT:UConn: The Huskies begin their December gauntlet of games against ranked teams when they face No. 15 DePaul on Thursday. The Huskies then travel to face No. 14 Texas on Dec. 4 before their Dec. 7 showdown with No. 1 Notre Dame. UConn also faces No. 9 Ohio State and No. 5 Maryland before January.Chattanooga: The Mocs visit Tennessee-Martin on Saturday, before returning home to face Stetson. Air Max 98 Comprar . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Mujer . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. HOUSTON -- Star sophomore quarterback Josh Rosen is expected to get most of the attention when No. 16 UCLA opens its season Saturday at noisy Kyle Field against Texas A&M.Aggies QB Trevor Knight will be enjoying the spotlight, too.Knight will make his debut in his first start since Dec. 29, 2014. He joined the Aggies as a graduate transfer in January after spending most of 2015 on the bench at Oklahoma after losing the job he held for most of 2014 to Baker Mayfield. He was certainly welcome in College Station since the Aggies were left scrambling for a starter after the abrupt transfers of both Kyler Murray and Kyle Allen in December.Knight impressed coach Kevin Sumlin quickly and was named the teams quarterback during spring drills.And it wasnt just his work on the field that wowed Sumlin. The rapport Knight built with his teammates was equally important.Thats a special skill set for guys to come in and do that, Sumlin said. Created friendships in a short period of time with guys in his room. If theres one thing you never really know in recruiting process is how a guy will gel with everyone else. You can help that but really dont know how it will happen. That really helped his growth and helped teams growth and offenses growth.Sumlin isnt worried about the pressure bothering Knight. He played in several big games for the Sooners in 2014 when he started 10 games and threw for 2,300 yards and 15 touchdowns.Knight should be helped by a solid group of receivers led by speedy sophomore Christian Kirk, who had 80 receptions for 1,009 yards a year ago. The Aggies also have Josh Reynolds. He led the Southeastern Conference by averaging 17.8 yards a catch and finished with 907 yards receiving in 2015. The third member of this heralded receiving corps and the biggest target is 6-foot-5, 240-pound Ricky Seals-Jones.Some things to know about UCLA and Texas A&Ms first meeting since 1998:NOELS NEW TEAMThe Bruins will see a familiar face on the opposite sideline in offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone. The 59-year-old spent 2012-15 in the same role for UCLA before joining the Aggies this offseason. Mazzone said he hasnt changed a lot from his days with the Bruins, but noted that he also knows their defense very well. That leaves him wondering if either side will have the upper hand in this situation.At end of day, plays are plays and schemes are schemes, he said. Kids have to make plays. Dont worry about things that much. Going to be a good football game. On flip side Ivve gone against their defense last four years. Air Max 97/1 Wotherspoon. Advantage? Disadvantage? I dont know.ROAD SUCCESSThe Bruins have been great on the road recently, having won 14 of their last 17 games away from the Rose Bowl. Theyve also won nine of their last 11 Pac-12 road games. Coach Jim Mora loves how his team responds to the adversity of playing away from home and is eager to see how his guys deal with a crowd that will likely top 100,000.The odds are stacked here, Mora said. This is going to be tough, but this is when our true character is going to reveal itself. I think these guys really embrace that.NATIONS BEST PASS RUSHING TANDEMRosen threw for 3,668 yards with 23 touchdowns and 11 interceptions as a freshman last season and many believe the Bruins will be in the thick of the Pac-12 race despite an up-and-down, 8-5 season last year. He and the offensive line will face one of the nations better pass-rushing tandems in Texas A&Ms Myles Garrett and Daeshon Hall. Garrett led the Southeastern Conference with 12+ sacks and five forced fumbles last season. Hall added 14+ tackles for losses.Mora has gotten creative this week in practice to prepare for Garrett, having the scout team player tasked with mimicking the defensive end line up offside to get that extra jump.I dont think you can go into any game saying, `Hey, were going to run away from these guys, Mora said. First of all youd have nowhere to run. But you have to be cognizant of where they are and what their capabilities are and you have to have answers if they become as disruptive as theyre capable of becoming.MCDERMOTTS TASKWhile dealing with Garrett will certainly require a team effort, UCLA left tackle Conor McDermott will lead the way in trying to slow him down. Like Garrett, McDermott is projected to be a high draft pick next year, and this game will be his chance to show off in front of a national audience. McDermott started the last seven games of 2014 at left tackle before starting 12 games last season on a team that allowed just 14 sacks, which was the second-fewest in school history.He hasnt played a ton still, Mora said. Its not like hes gotten a whole lot of snaps under his belt because hes had some injury issues throughout his career. But hes just very mature, hes very calm. Hes an excellent leader.---Online: AP college football website: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
