Halftime adjustments serve UConn's Nurse well

For all the impressive accomplishments in the first half of last night's win over Temple, Kia Nurse's opening 20 minutes wasn't anything to write home about.

Nurse missed both of her field-goal attempts, had one assist and two of the Huskies' six first-half turnovers.

When Nurse headed into the locker room at halftime she vowed to return with a more aggressive mindset and also made one change - returning to placing her hair in a bun which is what she normally does with her hair when she takes the court.

"The first half definitely wasn't what I wanted but I just kind of put the half behind me. I think it the second half I just came out with a different mentality and my hair, that might help that too but it definitely worked out."

Nurse played just nine minutes in the second half, went 4 of 5 from the field (4 of 4 from 3-point range) to finish with all 13 of her points in the second half.

It's encouraging to see Geno giving more bench players extended playing time this year.

At least eight players have seen extensive playing time this year, and he also is putting the other reserves into blowout games much earlier as well.
