Women’s Basketball Falls to UConn, 75-21

NCAA Womens Basketball: AAC Conference Tournament-Cincinnati vs Connecticut David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bearcats women’s basketball team fell 75-21 tonight against the number 1 ranked UConn Huskies.

In a game broadcasted on ESPN2, Cincinnati kept the game close in the first few minutes before fading in dramatic fashion.

After holding UConn to a 9-5 lead in the first five minutes, the Huksies went on a 34-0 run to end the half. Cincinnati did not score in the second quarter. UConn’s athleticism was simply too much for Cincinnati on both ends of the floor.

Andeija Puckett led the Bearcats with 5 points.

Cincinnati will have to wait until the weekend to see if they earned a bid in a post-season tournament, most likely the Women’s NIT.
