Freshman Breanna Stewart, the high school national player of the year added 15 points, eight rebounds and four blocks in her Huskies' debut. UConn had six players score in double figures.
UConn played without fifth-year senior guard Caroline Doty and junior guard Bria Hartley. Doty was scratched after aggravating a chronic left knee injury during the afternoon shoot-around. Hartley is out indefinitely with a sprained left foot.
Even without them, UConn's had an easy time with the Hawks, who took a 2-0 lead before the Huskies scored 16 unanswered points on the way to a 50-13 halftime lead.
