HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Stefanie Dolson recorded the second triple-double in Connecticut history, with a career-high 26 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists as the top-ranked Huskies ran away from Oregon 114-68 on Wednesday night.
Breanna Stewart had 28 points and eight rebounds and Bria Hartley added 17 points, six rebounds, and six assists for UConn (5-0).
Freshman Chrishae Rowe had 27 for the Ducks (2-2), just over her season average.
The Huskies never trailed. They used a 13-2 run to open up an early 18-point lead and ran away from there.
The only other triple-double in UConn history was recorded by Laura Lishness in 1989.
NO. 10 OKLAHOMA 99, TEXAS-ARLINGTON 46
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Aaryn Ellenberg scored 24 points, freshman Derica Wyatt added 23 — hitting seven 3-pointers— and No. 10 Oklahoma routed Texas-Arlington.
Ellenberg went 4 of 12 from 3-point range for Oklahoma (4-1) and her first 3-pointer of the game was the 300th of her career. But she was upstaged by Wyatt, a freshman who didn't even play in the Sooners' two most recent games, against Gonzaga and Louisville.
Wyatt, who entered the game 1 of 5 this season from behind the arc, didn't miss on five 3-point attempts in the first half as Oklahoma built a 52-19 lead over Texas-Arlington (0-5).
Briana Walker led Texas-Arlington with 13 points while Laila Suleiman and Desherra Nwanguma scored 12 each and Tahlia Pope had six points and 14 rebounds.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (AP) — Maggie Lucas scored 17 points to lead five Penn State players in double figures as the Lady Lions overwhelmed Bucknell.

Lucas scored at least 17 points for the fourth consecutive game. Joining Lucas in double figures were Candice Agee with a career-high 16 points, Ariel Edwards and Kaliyah Mitchell 14 apiece and Tori Waldner 10. Alex Harris had 11 rebounds.

The victory avenged a 67-58 upset at Hampton last year for the Lady Tigers (3-1). Hampton (2-1) was limited to 30 percent shooting and only made 7 of 18 free throws.
Nicole Hamilton scored a career-high 27 points for Hampton and Malia Tate-DeFreitas added 19, but the rest of the team combined for just eight points.
