WASHINGTON (AP) - Kelly Faris scored 15 points and No. 3 Connecticut survived a round of sloppy-ball Wednesday night, bouncing back from a rare conference-opening loss to beat Georgetown 75-48 in a game that included 45 turnovers.

Faris also had five steals and four assists and four turnovers on a night when the ball flew everywhere except where it was supposed to. It hardly mattered as far as the outcome, with the Huskies overmatched talent-wise against for a Big East foe they have beaten 28 consecutive times.

Stefanie Dolson added 13 points and seven turnovers, Breanna Stewart had 12 points and 13 rebounds, and Bria Hartley scored 12 points for UConn (13-1, 1-1), which fell out of the No. 1 spot in the rankings after a one-point loss to Notre Dame on Saturday.

Sugar Rodgers had 23 points and five turnovers for the Hoyas (10-5, 1-1), who haven't beaten the Huskies since 1993.
