Big night for UConn's Big 3

Last night marked the first time that recent UConn graduates Moriah Jefferson, Breanna Stewart and Morgan Tuck all took part in regular-season games for the first time in their rookie seasons. They did not disappoint.

Jefferson had a career-high 19 points as San Antonio snapped a four-game losing streak with a 77-70 win over Seattle. Stewart, despite a tough shooting game, had 19 points and 15 rebounds in the game.

Tuck made her first career start in place of the injured Alyssa Thomas and had 12 points (her third straight double-digit scoring game) in Connecticut's 109-106 triple-overtime loss to Washington.

Also, it was announced that Stewart has signed with Shanghai in China's WCBA. Stewart is the latest high-profile U.S. player to sign to play in China. Former Husky Maya Moore has done pretty well for herself playing in China both financially and championship wise.

The San Antonio/Seattle and Washington/Connecticut games both featured four former UConn players and four of the five games played last night included multiple UConn products.

Tina Charles of the New York Liberty had the best night with 28 points, aided by three 3-pointers in a 91-88 win over Dallas while Maya Moore and Renee Montgomery combined for 25 points as Minnesota rolled to an 87-63 win over Indiana to become the first WNBA team to open the season at 11-0.
