Samuelson honored; UConn remains No. 1 in AP poll
First, UConn sophomore Katie Lou Samuelson was named the American Athletic Conference's Player of the Week after averaging 24.5 points in wins over Ohio State and Nebraska.
Samuelson shot 45.7 percent from the field and 47.1 percent from 3-point range as she had 26 points against Ohio State and 23 against Nebraska.
UConn remained the unanimous No. 1 team in the Associated Press poll while Maryland, which hosts UConn on Thursday, is at No. 4 as the top 11 teams remained the same.
South Florida remained in the poll at No. 23 meaning that the two regular-season games against the Bulls and a Feb. 13 game versus South Carolina are the only remaining ranked teams on UConn's schedule after the Maryland game.
