Maya Moore can pass the ball, too.

The Connecticut guard, who is 11 points shy of the all-time Big East scoring lead, had a career-high nine assists Saturday to lead the second-ranked Huskies to a 68-38 victory over host Providence.

With 2,769 career points, Moore is 11 short of surpassing the Big East record held by Louisville's Angel McCoughtry.
