Yes, yet another upbeat, encouraging piece about the Huskies..!! Why? Because UConn is 54-1 in their last 55 games, 2 time defending National Champions and they make a difficult game look easy… most of the time. Consider these amazing stats about our favorite team:
1. Scoring this year is BALANCED. Stewie leads w/ 162 points. The next three players, KML & Kia Nurse & Morgan Tuck, have 124 pts, 124 pts and 124 pts... MoJeff is fifth at 78 points.
2. The top 3 leaders in steals are KML at 18, Moriah with 17 and Stewie at 14. Gabby and Nurse are fourth w/ 11 each. The total steals for UConn is 94 in nine games or 10.4 per game. Last year the average was 9.3 per game.
3. Gabby Williams is surpassing even the most optimistic expectations. Her 122 minutes in 8 games gives her an average of 15.3 minutes per. She leads the team in field goal accuracy at 68.2% and has 30 baskets (same as MoJeff), 11 steals (same as Nurse), 39 rebounds (2 behind Tuck) and 4 blocks (3rd best).
4. UConn opponents have attempted 550 shots. 55 have been blocked (10%) and only 183 have gone in (33.3%). Only 31.6% from the 3 pt arc have been good & the free throw defense is even better than last year at 62.9%.
5. Rebounding is also BALANCED. Kiah leads w/ 81 rebounds and Stewie is close behind at 63. The next four are KML (41), Tuck (41), Gabby (39) and Nurse (38). Interestingly, Morgan’s 41 rebounds include 20 offensive and 21 defensive. Kiah and Stewie each have 23 offensive boards.
6. Kia Nurse is averaging the 3rd most minutes per game at 27.0, behind KML at 31.6 & Stewie with 31.1 per game. She is averaging 41.2% from 3 pt range and has taken 35 free throws, 2nd most to Stewie at 36. From inside the 3 pt arc, she is shooting 69.7%...!!
7. MoJeff, despite calls for her to be traded, leads the team with 43 assists, is 2nd in steals at 17 and shooting 50% (22-44) from inside 3 pt range. In 242 minutes MoJeff has only 20 turnovers or one every 12.1 minutes. Oh, and she has 2 blocked shots, same as Tuck.
8. Stewie being Stewie, leads the team in points (162), total minutes on the court (280) and most free throws attempted (36). She is shooting over 80% from the free throw line, 58% from inside the arc and has 25 assists, 13 blocks and 14 steals.
