Taking a look at top UConn performances on Senior Day/Senior Night

It's always interesting to see how the players react to the emotion overload that comes when seniors walk out onto the court to greet UConn Geno Auriemma before their final regular-season home game.

I went back as far as 1990 to see how the final numbers shook out. For the trivia buffs out there, Nykesha Sales leads the way with 27 points on Senior Night. I found it interesting that Ashley Battle had as many points on her Senior Day/Night game as Maya Moore and Ketia Swanier had more points than Swin Cash, Shea Ralph or Diana Taurasi and as many as Bria Hartley.

Nykesha Sales   Notre Dame 2-21-98 27 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists in 27 minutes
