Tina Charles had 23 points and 10 rebounds as No. 2 Connecticut crushed South Carolina by 97-39 in Storrs, Conn., last night.

Ketia Swanier scored 15 points for the Huskies (8-0), who held the Gamecocks (7-3) to just one field goal in the final 11 minutes.

UConn lost starting forward Kalana Greene to what team officials called a severe knee injury in the first half. Greene was hurt while driving the right side of the lane for a layup late in the first half. She planted for the shot, and her right knee slid out from under her as she collided with South Carolina's Demetress Adams.

Greene, who had been averaging 8.6 points and just over five rebounds, remained on the floor for several minutes writhing in pain. She had to be helped from the floor, and she did not return.

Connecticut never trailed, scoring the first eight points of the game.
