Crystal Dangerfield, Christyn Williams and Aubrey Griffin each added 13 points for the Huskies (26-3, 16-0), who improved to 136-0 against AAC opponents, including all six conference tournaments. They open play in this season's tournament on Saturday, in the familiar position as the top seed.
Sydni Harvey had 16 points for South Florida (18-12, 10-6), which had won three straight.
The Huskies never trailed South Florida and put the game away early, jumping out to a 22-4 lead behind 10 first-quarter points from Walker.
A three-point play by Dangerfield highlighted a 19-0 run in the second quarter and gave the Huskies their first 30-plus-point lead at 42-10. A 3-pointer by Anna Marurat put the Huskies up 53-14 at the half.
The Bulls had more turnovers (15) than points before intermission and ended the half with just four baskets on 30 shots.>> Read more
