UConn spreading the wealth

Since Geno Auriemma's arrival at UConn back in 1985 he has always valued players who can pass the ball.

This year's team certainly fits the bill when it comes time to racking up the assists. UConn has 56 assists in the last two games with 24 more today against SMU,  it would mark just the seventh time since the start of the 1995-96 season that the Huskies had at least 80 assists in three consecutive games.

"You never know who is going to have how many points because the ball is always moving, each game somebody is doing something different so it is always great when you have a team that can share the ball," said UConn senior guard Moriah Jefferson, who has a team-high 88 assists.
Here is the breakdown of three-game stretches where UConn has at least 80 assists
