Nice article, it would have been nice to see the points that each player (including the high school girls!) scored.

I don't think they kept track of the points - at least not on the scoreboard. What amazed me most was Barbara Turner - she must have thrown in ten 3 pointers. Also, Will Crockett, Ashley Battle and Rita Williams got a couple and Jessica Moore one.

The High School kids didn't score much. They were probably too much in awe of the players. They probably should have scored more, as there was no defensive effort in the game. It was fun to see the Huskies back together.

This was a very fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon ... and benefit some worthwhile charities as well. It was sooo awesome to watch some of the all-time UConn greats run & gun with no pressures of winning ... just playing for she sheer joy of it.

It's a shame there weren't more fans at the game! If you ever get the chance to see these kids play for charity, don't pass it up!!!
