MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Connecticut only managed to make two big runs against Kansas State on Sunday.It took both of them to win.Katie Lou Samuelson scored 26 points, Napheesa Collier had 22 and the top-ranked Huskies rode the momentum of a 17-0 surge in the first half and a 10-0 charge in the second to a 75-58 victory over the Wildcats at sold-out Bramlage Coliseum.Samuelson hit six 3-pointers and Kia Nurse added 13 points for the Huskies (9-0), who ran their winning streak to 84 straight games, six shy of their 90-game stretch from 2008-10. It was also their 27th consecutive road win.We passed the ball to Lou a lot, so that always helps, when you pass it to Katie Lou, UConn coach Geno Auriemma said, trying to explain the game-changing runs that pushed his team to victory.We were able to get out in transition and get Kansas States defense moving before they could settle into a defense, Auriemma said. That was the game plan. And in the first quarter, we forced some turnovers, we rebounded the ball, ran our transition game, and our players are very good at finding Katie Lou.Breanna Lewis had 18 points for the Wildcats (9-1), who were off to their best start since 2008.I definitely had jitters. Ive never had an opportunity to play in front of so many people, said Karyla Middlebrook, who scored 11 for Kansas State. But I dont use that as an excuse for the two early turnovers I had. You have to turn those jitters into positive energy to help the team.Kansas State actually led 4-2 in the opening minutes before UConn ripped off a 17-0 charge that forced Kansas State coach Jeff Mittie to burn two timeouts. Samuelson did most of the damage, knocking down three 3-pointers, as the Wildcats missed seven consecutive field-goal attempts.They move the ball better than any team in the country, Mittie said. They do a great job of getting the basketball to Lou, she has a great high release and shes a great shooter.The Wildcats finally got things under control, and even made a charge of their own to get within 45-31 at the break. But when they closed to 51-40 on a 3-pointer by Kaylee Page with about seven minutes left in the third quarter, the Huskies answered with 10 straight points.That spurt, along with their big first-quarter run, was too much for Kansas State to overcome.UConn shot nearly 50 percent from the field (30 of 61) and had a big advantage on the boards, while the Wildcats struggled to deal with the Huskies pressure. They turned it over 16 times.I thought our group in the third quarter created some turnovers, created some opportunities, Mittie said. Unfortunately we missed some opportunities to get it to single digits.SELLOUT CROWDWhen I heard it was sold-out, Auriemma said, I thought, `Thats the way its supposed to be. They have a really good team, weve never been out this way before. So you know what? Were going to go in there and its going to be an unbelievable environment.BIG PICTUREUConn proved again that its depth isnt an issue, only playing six while building its commanding lead early in the game. The Huskies left Saniya Chong at home after she took an elbow during their win over Notre Dame and experienced concussion-like symptoms. Hopefully shell be OK, Auriemma said.Kansas State appeared to let its nerves win in the first quarter, when turnovers and poor shooting conspired to put the Wildcats in a 25-8 hole. But they also showed some composure in battling back, which is sure to encourage Mittie as he continues to build the program.UP NEXTUConn heads back to the XL Center to play No. 12 Ohio State on Dec. 19.Kansas State wraps its three-game homestand against Princeton next Sunday. Ryan Hewitt Jersey. -- Ryan Getzlaf grabbed the three pucks wrapped in tape and held them up to his chest in the Anaheim Ducks dressing room for a celebration nine seasons in the making. Vincent Rey Jersey. Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. Preston Brown Jersey. As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. Trey Hopkins Jersey. The news was first reported on Gonzalezs Twitter account and confirmed by the Rockies. Gonzalez has a six-week window before position players have their first workout at spring training in Arizona. MELBOURNE, Fla. -- When Melbourne Central Catholic trailed by 21 points early in the second quarter of a state quarterfinal matchup, players were reminded that there was still a lot of football left to play.Turns out, there was more than anyone envisioned.It took a Florida state-record nine overtimes, but the Hustlers beat Clearwater Central Catholic 69-62 on Friday night -- after the teams combined for a staggering 89 points after regulation.The win sent the Hustlers into this weekends state Class 3A semifinals.Im most excited for our kids and our coaches, to be able to experience this, Melbourne Central Catholic coach Stacy Sizemore said Sunday. We have about six or seven seniors that play and the rest are sophomores and juniors.Joaquin Collazos touchdown run in the fourth quarter pulled Melbourne Central Catholic into a 21-21 tie.Little did anyone know, the teams were just getting started.Both teams stopped the other in the first and fifth overtimes. In the eighth overtime, Clearwater Central Catholic reached the end zone but missed the extra point.

Theres no rule in Florida mandating that teams try a 2-point conversion after a certain number of overtimes.ddddddddddddWe even threw two picks in overtime, Sizemore said.The Hustlers overcame it all, scoring again in the ninth overtime when Collazo rushed in for the third time. On the ensuing Clearwater Central Catholic possession, the Hustlers got a fourth-down stop at the 1 to -- finally -- end the game.

Good, bad or indifferent, its about the memories.Sizemore said for the most part, his team -- which includes some two-way players -- got out of the game fairly healthy. And at 6 a.m. Monday, they would be back at work with some weightlifting before school starts.Theyre excited to keep going, Sizemore said. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
