Stewart leads UConn to Paradise Jam title

Freshman Breanna Stewart was named the MVP of the Paradise Jam's Island Division after UConn rolled past Wake Forest, Marist and Purdue over the last three days.

Stewart averaged 19 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 2.3 blocked shots while shooting 66.7 percent from the field and 75 percent from the free-throw line. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis also scored in double figures in all three games (although she did leave Saturday's game after suffering blow to the head and her status for Wednesday's game against Colgate is uncertain). Seven different Huskies had double-digit scoring games in the three blowout wins.

One of the greatest benefits from the tournament was that it gave junior guard Bria Hartley a chance to get back in the groove. Hartley missed nearly all of preseason camp and the first two games as she recovered from a sprained left ankle. Hartley averaged 15.3 minutes in the three games and averaged 7 points and 3 assists per game.

Next up for the Huskies is a game against Colgate on Wednesday at the XL Center.

South Carolina won the Reef Division of the tournament with a 3-0 record.

Breanna stewart was amazing in the final game. She seemed to be the only one who could/would defend Purdue. Purdue had two great shooters. Moses and Houser. Moses hit 11 point in the first half and 13 in the second most on 3's. KML,Stokes and banks were great. Best game as a UConn for Stokes. 6 rebounds and 6 points in 17 minutes. Stewart hit 17 point in 21 minutes with 4 rebounds. Uconn isn't ready to take the Championship trophy yet. But they will have a very good year and those 5 loses of last year will be avenged. No doubt. Tuck and Jefferson are amazing Freshmen.
