AUSTIN, Texas (AP) The evidence of the dogfight top-ranked UConn found itself in was the purplish bruise that had halfway closed Katie Lou Samuelson's left eye.

The shiner was courtesy of a tough Texas elbow shortly after tipoff that served notice that unlike most of this season, the Huskies weren't going to get anything easy from the No. 9 Longhorns.

Samuelson shook off the early pop to the face to score 19 points, and Crystal Dangerfield made two free throws with 8 seconds left as the Huskies survived an upset bit to earn a 75-71 win Monday night and stay unbeaten.
