2012 Women's NCAA Final Four, UConn Vs. Notre Dame Halftime Score: Stefani Dolson Has Huskies Up

UConn hasn't relied on Stefanie Dolson to do a lot on its way to the 2012 Women's Final Four. But the Huskies' biggest player came up huge for them in the first half of their Final Four matchup with Notre Dame, and UConn has a 36-33 lead at halftime as a result.

Dolson racked up 12 points, five rebounds, and two blocks as UConn coped with Notre Dame's pressure by throwing the ball down low to her. Dolson has four turnovers and two fouls, though, and that will make Bria Hartley (10 points) continuing her good play an important part of the Huskies' second half.

The Fighting Irish haven't been able to get Skylar Diggins on track (six points on 3-of-7 shooting with three turnovers and two fouls), but Natalie Novosel has stepped up, scoring 11 points, dishing three assists and snagging two rebounds. And Kayla McBride hit a jumper with seconds left to slice UConn's halftime advantage to three points.
