Trio powers Connecticut over Rutgers

Feb 7, 2007 - 4:50 AM STORRS, Connecticut (Ticker) -- Connecticut's inside strength was too much for Rutgers to handle.

Charde Houston, freshman Tina Charles and Kalana Greene all registered double-doubles to power the fourth-ranked Huskies to a 60-50 victory over the 23rd-ranked Scarlet Knights.

UConn (21-2, 11-0 Big East) remained unbeaten in conference play behind Houston, who had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Charles and Greene, who added 15 and 10 apiece.

That helped offset a combined 2-of-15 shooting performance by the Huskies' starting backcourt of Renee Montgomery and Mel Thomas.

Leading at halftime, 30-23, Connecticut scored the first 10 points of the second half, including six by Greene, to take a commanding 17-point advantage.

Rutgers (14-7, 7-3) never got closer than nine the rest of the way.

Kia Vaughn had 16 points and eight rebounds for the Scarlet Knights, who committed 20 turnovers.
