The No. 8 Maryland women's basketball team kept up with top-ranked Connecticut on Friday night, but for only so long. After tying the game 43-43 with 18:50 left in the second half, Maryland all but ran out of steam against the defending national champion Huskies. The Terps would score only 12 points more, fading late in a 72-55 loss at Comcast Center. UConn's Breanna Stewart led all scorers with 26 points on 9-for-16 shooting. Her all-around attack - three 3-pointers to go with six offensive rebounds - kept the Huskies (3-0)

Connecticut associate head coach Chris Dailey, who has served as Geno Auriemma's top assistant for the past 17 seasons, said she has not been contacted by Maryland but would be interested in coaching there. "I think you'd be crazy not to look at a place like Maryland," said Dailey, who played at Rutgers and helped lead the Scarlet Knights to the 1982 Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women championship.

It began on the steps of the Connecticut state Capitol on a cold April day last season with Geno just being Geno. The parade celebrating UConn's sixth title had just ended. The Huskies coach stepped to a microphone. "I don't know how we're going to be able to go 39-0 next year," said Geno Auriemma, the Connecticut coach. "The only reason I say that is, if we win every game we play next year we'll be 40-0." Your first thought: He must be joking. Your second thought: Maybe he's not. You know how basketball is?
