Women’s Basketball: Huskies hang tough, overcome chippy Knights

The last time the Huskies played the Knights, it was a thing of beauty at the XL Center. On Sunday afternoon on the road, it was a little bit different and it probably has to do with the physical or chippy nature of UCF.

“Every game is different. Every game is played differently,” UConn head coach Geno Auriemma said during the postgame press conference on SNY. “Some games, you know, it’s all run up and down and score 95 points and make it look easy. And some games you grind it out, kind of games. It’s nothing unusual when we play Central Florida. The games are always like this, you know, they are physical and you gotta make some tough plays and you can’t get caught up in some of the nonsense that happens either.”
