COLUMBUS, Ohio - Breanna Stewart admitted that she put herself in a potential difficult situation Monday by committing a pair of fouls she should not have.

But how the University of Connecticut women's basketball team's senior and the two-time national Player of the Year ended up on the bench midway through the third quarter of the top-ranked Huskies' 100-56 win over No. 7 Ohio State at Value City Arena left her and her coach a bit confused.

After a basket 3:09 into the second half by Ohio State's Shayla Cooper, Stewart and Buckeyes' redshirt freshman reserve Makayla Waterman hit the floor. Referee Tina Napier blew her whistle to stop play.

Box score

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Geno Auriemma said on his radio show last week that the first to 100 points would win the University of Connecticut women's basketball team's regular season opener against Ohio State.

The Hall of Fame coach, as usual, was right. But the triple-figure performance offensively took second fiddle to the Huskies' defensive effort.

STORRS, Conn. - Breanna Stewart didn't need to announce her college decision on ESPN. She wasn't even on Twitter in January 2011. In fact, there wasn't an announcement at all. The news leaked out.

The North Syracuse, New York, native didn't need an audience or lights and cameras to sign her letter of intent 10 months later. She did it on the hood of her Honda CRV outside of her father Brian's office.

Today, the University of Connecticut's senior forward is the face of women's college basketball. She is a two-time national Player of the Year and All-American, and a three-time national champion and Final Four Most Outstanding Player. She is an academic All-American as well.
