But what's been going on outside the stripe over the past month has set a standard for record-book revision.
On Wednesday in Washington, the Huskies launched 41 three-pointers during their 75-48 win over Georgetown — 19 in the first half, 22 in the second. They made 12.
They set a program record for shots, breaking one that lasted for all of three weeks.
On Dec. 19 at the XL Center, the Huskies took 40 three-pointers against Oakland, breaking a record (39) set on Jan. 17, 2009, against Syracuse — the day that Maya Moore went 10 of 14 from outside the arc to put 40 on the Orange.
Previous to this recent rash of threes, the Huskies had taken as many as 34 only once — in 1993.
On Saturday, the No. 3 Huskies (13-1, 1-1) play Marquette (8-6, 0-1) at the Al McGuire Center. One would think the Golden Eagles should prepare themselves for another assault. Or perhaps Marquette might want to orchestrate it.
Coach Geno Auriemma, the choreographer, said the predominance of threes is just a byproduct of how teams have chosen to play defense. For instance, Georgetown worked hard to clog the lane, essentially an invitation for the Huskies to shoot.
"And we probably only attempted 41 because we turned it over 19 times,'' Auriemma said. "So we probably could've had 60 [threes]. I don't think there's an ideal number, but I know 41 is probably too many. But Georgetown had a pretty good defense, five guys in the lane and let you shoot.
"In the first half, the guys were trying to force the ball into the lane or wait until three seconds were left on the shot clock to get the ball in the lane. [The coaches] just said, 'We're passing up a lot of open shots to just throw the ball in the lane. What's the point?'
"So we were much more eager to shoot the ball when we were open, and we missed a lot of easy threes. We just want a good shot. And we got 41 good threes, for the most part.''
It's not that UConn has abandoned other aspects of offense. The Huskies have scored 18 more points than Notre Dame and Georgetown in the paint in their past two games.
What Auriemma wants is more balance; taking the ball to the rim and earning free throws, something his team hasn't been focused on of late.
The Huskies drew only eight fouls at Georgetown and took just 10 free throws. They attempted only 14 in the Notre Dame loss and 11 on Dec. 31 at Oregon.
In their first 14 games, they've taken more than 20 free throws just three times. Those equate to lost scoring opportunities, especially for a team with good free-throw shooters, which UConn usually is.
UConn is averaging 24.3 three-pointers in 14 games and is making 37.6 percent. Mosqueda-Lewis (50 percent) and Faris (47.8 percent) have been money.
"If there is an open shot, we are going to take it," Stewart said. "And we'll take it because we know we can knock them down. But at the same time, we'd like to try to get things going by also attacking the basket."
So focusing too hard on taking the ball to the basket could actually inhibit UConn's scorers. It's not an easy balance to keep.
"You can't force things like that," Auriemma said. "It's crazy. I mean, if the defense is going to put five players in the lane, where are you going to drive it to? There is no place to take the ball.
"And if you are playing on the road, it's not a bad strategy for the visiting team to say, 'Let's see how many shots you can make on our home court.'
"We're a really good three-point shooting team. I don't want to say that I'd like it if we kept shooting 40 of them, but we've got some guys on this team that I never want to pass up an open three.
"I never want Kelly [Faris], Kaleena or Bria to pass up an open three. I want them to shoot it if they are open and I don't care what the situation is. I don't care if it's the 40th [three-pointer] or the fourth.
"We might win a game down the road because of that. But we might win a bunch of games, too."
