Immanuella Anagu (Culver City, Calif.) also showed up big in UConn's first weekend, notching 24 total blocks and 29 kills en route to being named the American Athletic Conference's Defensive Player of the Week.
Brianna Datti (Durham, N.C.) surpassed the 900 career dig mark against Central Connecticut and now stands just 56 digs away from the Huskies' all-time top-10 leaders. The senior libero set a new single-game career high when she scooped 35 digs against the Blue Devils last Saturday.
Friday's match against the Rockets will be the first time the two programs have met on the court.
