Maya Moore scored 19 points and No. 1 Connecticut outscored Temple by 43 points in a near-perfect first half Tuesday night and the Huskies beat the Owls, 90-36, in the second round of the NCAA women's tournament at Norfolk, Va.

"The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia" might win for most unwieldy title of the year, but there's little else to distinguish this movie, related to the 2009 film in name only, from the recent crop of supernatural horror thrillers supposedly based on true stories. Here, a family moves to a remote property picked up on the cheap, and the young daughter (Emily Alyn Lind) begins to share the same "gift" as her mother and aunt (Abigail Spencer, Katie Sackhoff), an ability to see and communicate with spirits.
