HOUSTON--- The Cougars received a team-high 15 points from senior forward Te'onna Campbell, but it wasn't enough, as the UConn Huskies proved why they're considered the nation's top team, defeating Houston, 92-41, Saturday afternoon at Hofheinz Pavilion.

For Campbell it was the most points she's scored since putting in 17 on Jan. 25 vs. SMU, as she played all 40 minutes today.

Sophomore guard Jessieka Palmer notched her second straight double-digit scoring game, as she poured in 12 points in what was her second start of the season, while senior center Yasmeen Thompson led the team with 10 rebounds, also marking her 10th double digit rebounding contest of the season.

Sefanie Dolson led the way for Connecticut (28-0, 15-0 The American), as she scored a game-high 24 points and grabbed a team-best nine rebounds, while Bria Hartley also poured in a game-high matching 24 points on 8-of-12 shooting.

Things didn't look promising early for Houston (5-22, 1-15 The American), as Connecticut scored seven unanswered points within the first three minutes of the game, but Houston fought back with a mini 4-0 run of its own to make it just a 9-4 deficit with 16:08 left to play in the first half.

The Cougars continued to compete with the number one team in the land, as it trailed just 22-13 with only 9:13 left to play in the first half.

But then UConn got hot, as it ended the half on an 18-3 scoring run, while shooting 48 percent from the floor (12-of-25) to take a 40-16 lead into the intermission.

As they did last Wednesday at No. 3 Louisville, the tandem of Tyler Gilbert and Palmer carried the Cougars, as the two combined to score Houston's first 14 points of the second half.

Ten different Cougars saw playing time, as Taylor Gilbert earned her first minutes since Dec. 1 vs. Prairie View A&M, while she also scored her first career points.

The Cougars won the second chance point battle and scored nine more points in the second half than in the first half.

Houston will close out its regular season home slate next Saturday, when it welcomes in Memphis at 2:00 p.m. CT.

Game Notes: Today was the first time Houston has hosted a No. 1 opponent since March 1, 1987 (Texas)...today's attendance of 1,569 marked a season high...today marked the fourth top-five opponent the Cougars had taken on this season, the most since the 2003-04 campaign.
