Women's Final Four 2011, UConn vs. Notre Dame Score: Huskies Lead Irish 32-26 At Half

It’s no surprise that the UConn Huskies are ahead at halftime of their Final Four match-up with Big East rival Notre Dame. The surprise might be that the Irish are keeping it pretty close, trailing only by six at the half, 32-26.

Notre Dame was getting great play from Brittany Mallory, who has a knack for causing UConn star Maya Moore fits. Unfortunately, Mallory went down with an injury and hasn’t returned to action. Picking up the slack is Skylar Diggins, who has 14 points. No other Irish player has more than four.

For the Huskies, who else but Maya Moore is in control. Moore has 15 points, four steals and three rebounds on the day so far. Stefanie Dolson and Bria Hartley also have seven and six points, respectively.

The Irish are shooting 48% and the Huskies are shooting 43% so far. Notre Dame is going to have to keep up that lights-out attack if they want any hope of the massive upset.
