UConn's Collier/Samuelson climbing the charts

Watching sophomores Napheesa Collier and Katie Lou Samuelson get off to rip roaring offensive starts got me to wondering the last time the Huskies had two players putting up as many points as UConn's current dynamic duo.

Normally when I get to "wondering" it means it is time for research and this time it is no different.

If they have a typical game, they would post the second most points for UConn teammates through 10 games trailing only Maya Moore and Tiffany Hayes during the 2010-11 season.

They could also finish among the top 10 player through 10 games since Geno Auriemma's arrival in 1985
