UConn comes into this game ranked as the #6 team in the country and they absolutely dominated NAU in their first game. Stonehill does have the benefit of playing an extra game and they played pretty solid defense in their last game, but they are overmatched here. The Huskies are one of the best teams in the country and they should dominate on both sides of the court. With that being said, this spread is crazy. I think UConn is going to win easily, but give me all of these points with Stonehill.
