Patosha Jeffery 2015 UCONN vs Maryland Week 2 Video

Week 2 matchup between UCONN and Maryland was a battle of contrasting styles. With Maryland’s slow down, patient dribble-kick style vs UCONN’s uptempo, transition style; it lead to a very slow first half with neither team really getting going. UCONN would eventually pull out to a big lead in the start of the second half led by the length and versatility of Teal Battle and Erica Jones. Both Teal and Erica have long arms and possess strong knacks for being around the ball. They block shots, rebound on both ends, can step out and shot or finish around the rim and hustle on every play. Erica has been the breakout player in the league and has really advanced her play since last summer. Christina Nichols (2020) played with high confidence despite being the youngest player on the court; she has nice handles and court vision. Maryland’s Jayla Hemingway had another strong game; she drives to the goal strong every play and draws tons of fouls. Shannon Sharp contributed to Maryland’s scoring knocking down mid range jumpers. The contrasting styles made for a low scoring game but UCONN won by double figures.
