Associated Press

Kara Wolters scored 12 of her 18 points in the second half and Jen Rizzotti had 17 points and led a poised offense as No. 2 Connecticut beat top-ranked Tennessee, 77-66, in a battle of unbeaten teams Monday.

The Huskies (13-0, 6-0 in the Big East) held the Vols to 12-of-34 shooting in the first half.

Tennessee (16-1, 4-0 in the Southeastern Conference) was frustrated by turnovers and got no closer than five points.

It was Connecticut's 28th consecutive home victory.
