HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Napheesa Collier scored 26 points and Katie Lou Samuelson added 22 points to lead UConn to a 124-43 rout of Wichita State on Saturday in the first meeting between the two programs.
The 124 points was two shy of the program record, which was set against Providence in 1998.
Gabby Williams added 17 points, Azura Stevens 16 and Kia Nurse 14 for the Huskies (24-0, 12-0 American), who won their 75th straight home game, the third longest home winning streak in NCAA history.
The Huskies shot 71 percent from the floor, hitting 47 of their 66 shots.
Rangie Bassard had 20 points to lead Wichita State (10-16, 5-7 American).
UConn never trailed. A behind-the-back assist from Crystal Dangerfield to Samuelson for a layup highlighted a 15-0 run that put the game away early. Dangerfield, UConn's point guard, started after missing the last two games with shin splints.
The Huskies led 41-12 after 10 minutes, tying a program record for points in a quarter. << Read more
