It's an offensive set that the University of Connecticut women's basketball team has run thousands of times in games and in practice this season.
But it may have been the first time it was Tierney Lawlor delivering the ball to Katie Lou Samuelson. The senior's pass to Samuelson with 14 seconds gone Saturday resulted in a four-point play for the sophomore shooting star and she and the Huskies were never headed.
"It was a great way to start the game and it was even better that Tee gave me the pass," Samuelson said. "It felt good from there."
Samuelson scored 23 of her 29 points in the first half as No. 1 UConn routed Memphis 91-48 in American Athletic Conference action before a Senior Day sellout crowd at Gampel Pavilion.
"It was just a normal play that we run in practice and it just happened to work out," Lawlor said. "Lou knocked in the shot and got an and-one. It was exciting."
UConn honored its seniors -- Lawlor and Saniya Chong -- in a pregame ceremony. In a tradition here that's a quarter-century old, coach Geno Auriemma put them in the starting lineup.
Unlike Senior Day 2016 when the Huskies fell into a 13-2 hole against Tulane -- the 11-point deficit is the largest of the current 103-game winning streak -- Samuelson had it going from the start and her teammates soon followed.
"Coach was saying, 'Your Senior Day is going to be here faster than you know it and you want to make sure that you're doing everything you can for every single senior you play with up until your Senior Day,' " Samuelson said. "You want to do everything you can for your seniors, especially Tee and Saniya. They've done a lot for this program and have been a big part of my development personally. They mean a lot to me."
Napheesa Collier added 19 points while Chong contributed 14 points and seven assists.
The Class of 2017 now has a record of 144-1.
"That's pretty darn good, huh?" Auriemma said. "And they'll be able to tell all of their friends and relatives and everyone for the rest of their lives that they were 144-1. I played in and all-star game one time in high school and the guy who was my backcourt mate (Mo Howard), he and I had 48 points. He had 42 and I had six but I tell everyone we had 48. He went to Maryland I went to oblivion. But no one has to know that.
"Tee is going to go around telling everyone, 'I was 144-1.' These are great things to talk about down the road. I love it. And the first thing I said when I walked in the coaches room was, 'Saniya and Tee have never lost a home game.' It's pretty ridiculous when you think about it."
If the Huskies (28-0 overall, 15-0 AAC) beat South Florida in their regular season finale on Monday, the Class of 2017 will be assured of finishing with the NCAA record for winning percentage in a four-year span. The only UConn class to finish unbeaten at home in four years was its Class of 2011 with Maya Moore and Lorin Dixon. The Huskies will host NCAA tournament first- and second-round games next month.
The 10,167 fans here were behind the seniors from the start.
"The crowd was amazing," Auriemma said. "And it's not like these two kids have been iconic All-Americans since they've been at UConn. They're just two regular kids who have spent a good part of their lives here. Our fans came out for them. It was a lot like the old days and that's been happening a lot lately. It was a thrill for Saniya and Tee to play in front of this kind of crowd on Senior Day."
Samuelson netted the game's first six points and UConn's first eight.
Collier then had eight points and Chong five, with a Samuelson 3 capping a 16-0 run that made it 24-5. It was 30-13 after one quarter and 10 unanswered points -- the last six by Samuelson -- pushed the lead to 27. It was 51-20 at the break.
Memphis (13-15, 6-9) got no closer as UConn opened the third quarter with a 14-2 spurt.
Samuelson finished 11-for-14 from the floor, including 5-for-8 from 3-point land. The AAC's leading scorer, who played just two of the final 14 minutes Saturday, was just 13-for-40 shooting in her previous three games.
"I don't think I've been in a slump because I've been shooting well in practice," Samuelson said. "They just haven't been going in during games. It was nice to shoot well today. It was only a couple of days about of weeks with what we're doing."
Chong came out to a loud ovation with 2:51 left. Lawlor, who has only one point this season, stayed in until the end and missed four 3-pointers -- two were tipped -- in the final 2:08.
It was the only disappointment of the day.
"Of course, everybody wants to play well on this day, but I was just out there making sure everyone was having fun," Chong said. "Even if things didn't go well at least we are still working hard and connecting with each other."
Brea Elmore had 19 points for Memphis while Cheyenne Creighton registered a double-double of 12 points and 10 rebounds.
The Huskies will look to complete their ninth unbeaten regular season Monday night against USF at the Sun Dome. UConn defeated the Bulls 102-37 for victory No. 90 of the winning streak on Jan. 10 at the XL Center in Hartford. Of the eight times the Huskies went unbeaten during the regular season, they went on to win the national championship seven times.
