No. 1 U-Conn thumps Tigers

ladytigers 600The University of Memphis Tigers got a first-hand view of big-time women's basketball going up against the top-ranked Huskies of Connecticut and absorbing a 90-49 thumping at the FedExForum on Saturday.

Memphis battled for a short while, up by three with six minutes elapsed. Then UConn switched into another gear and proved why this year's team is No. 1 and is building – once again – on a championship pedigree.

The Huskies – now sporting a 15-0 record – held the Tigers without a basket for 9 minutes and 8 seconds during one stretch of the second half.

Memphis guard Ariel Hearn had 20 points to lead the Tigers.
