ORLANDO, Fla. — Briahanna Jackson was so good even Geno Auriemma was impressed.

Jackson scored eight of Central Florida’s first 10 points and finished with 28 in the Knights’ 77-49 loss to No. 1 Connecticut on Wednesday.

“For a second, I was feeling really good,” Jackson said. “I was excited about playing a high-level team and we got a feel what it’s going to be like facing them on a regular basis.”

Jackson’s fast start helped Central Florida to a 7-3 lead that was the largest deficit of the season for the Huskies. She was 11 for 22 from the field, including 6 for 10 from three-point range in the highest-scoring game for a player against Connecticut this season.

“(Jackson) has great range and made a couple of shots that weren’t easy,” Auriemma said.

Stefanie Dolson had 25 points and 12 rebounds for Connecticut (14-0, 1-0 American Athletic Conference), which led 46-22 at halftime and by no fewer than 18 the rest of the way.

The Knights (8-5, 1-1) shot 30.8 percent from the field and were outrebounded 51-40.

“We got in a hurry,” Central Florida coach Joi Williams said. “UConn does that to you.”

Dolson, a 6-foot-5 senior, made her first six shots and was 11 of 14 for the game.
