Faris was a member of two national championship teams at UConn, finished tied for second with 154 games played with the Huskies, was fifth in minutes played (4,258) and steals (294) and sixth with 545 assists. She also finished with 1,109 points and 821 rebounds and led the Huskies to a 143-11 record during her four seasons.
