The Final Score Of The UConn Women's 1st Round Game Was Ridiculous

UConn women's basketball team coasted to victory in the first round of the NCAA Tournament today.

That's what you call it when a team wins by 88 points, right?

After jumping out to a 94-31 halftime lead, including a 55-point output in the first quarter, the top-seeded Huskies "only" scored 46 second-half points. They beat 16th-seeded St. Francis (Pa.) 140-52.

A deeper look at the box score provides even more incredible stats beyond the final tally. UConn shot 65 percent from the field and had 38 assists as a team. St. Francis shot 57 three-pointers and made only 10.

UConn outscored St. Francis for the game in the first quarter (55-52). That might be the craziest stat of all.

We'll see if the Huskies' second-round opponent will fare any better.
