College roundup: No.2 UConn women roll

Stefanie Dolson scored 24 points to lead No. 2 Connecticut to an 81-50 romp of No. 16 Texas A&M Sunday in College Station, Texas.

UConn (2-0) is likely to slide into the top ranking after defending national champion Baylor fell to No. 4 Stanford last Friday.

The Huskies (2-0) hammered the Aggies (0-3) in the paint, 42-12, as A&M had no answer for the 6-foot-5-inch Dolson and forwards Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (16 points) and Breanna Stewart (11 points) down low.


Courtney Walker led A&M with 20 points, the only Aggie to score in double figures.
