HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Megan Walker scored 22 points and Christyn Williams had 21 as top-ranked UConn responded to its first loss of the season with a 91-51 rout of Houston on Saturday.
Crystal Dangerfield (17 points) and Olivia Nelson-Ododa (13) also hit double figures for the Huskies (13-1, 4-0 American), who have gone 975 games over 27 years without losing twice in a row.
Dorian Branch scored 13 points to lead Houston (8-9, 1-2), which has lost three of its last four games.
The Huskies have never lost in the American Athletic Conference and won their 106th straight regular-season conference game and 124th when tournament games are included. They made it clear early they would not be threatened in this one.
Nelson-Ododa, who went 0-8 from the floor in Thursday's 74-58 loss to Baylor, opened the scoring with a strong move to the basket and the Huskies ran out to a 16-0 lead, capped by a 3-pointer from the baseline by Williams.
The Cougars missed their first 12 shots and it was 25-2 after a quarter, 44-21 at the half and 72-34 after three quarters. >> Read More
