The University of Connecticut women's basketball team is 20 minutes away from moving into the top spot in the polls.
Freshman Breanna Stewart has nine points and the second-ranked Huskies have taken a 31-13 halftime lead over No. 1 Stanford at sold-out Maples Pavilion.
The Cardinal, who have won 82 straight home games, are just 5-for-33 from the floor.
UConn broke a 5-5 tie with a 17-2 run. Bria Hartley got it started with a 3-pointer and Stefanie Dolson followed with an eight-foot bank shot. After Chiney Ogwumike scored on an offensive rebound, Kelly Faris hit a 3 and two free throws and Stewart scored seven straight points for a 22-7 lead.
The Huskies' biggest lead was 29-9 on a Faris layup off a steal and pass by Brianna Banks.
Faris and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis have seven points each for UConn. Dolson has just the two points but has 11 rebounds. Ogwumike has eight points for Stanford but is only 3-for-13 from the floor.
Freshman Morgan Tuck, who missed UConn's last two games with a right knee bone bruise, entered the game for the final 1:05 of the period.
The second-ranked Huskies (10-0) are 13-3 in games featuring the top two teams in the Associated Press poll, including 3-0 against the Cardinal in three meetings in just over a one-year span. Stanford (11-0) is 1-7 in such affairs with a home win over No. 2 Alabama on Nov. 17, 1996.
