Connecticut 80, Central Florida 44

STORRS, Conn. -- Azura Stevens came off the bench to score 19 points, leading top-ranked UConn to its 100th consecutive regular-season win on Tuesday, 80-44 over UCF.

Stevens hit nine of her 13 shots and grabbed 10 rebounds for Connecticut (14-0, 4-0 American), for her fourth double-double of the season and 28th of her career.

Korneila Wright scored 17 points for Central Florida (11-6, 3-1).

UConn, which came in averaging 91 points a game, led just 32-19 at halftime. It was the Huskies lowest-scoring first half this season.

Coach Geno Auriemma apparently had some things to say in the locker room, keeping his team off the court until there was less than 30 seconds left on the halftime clock.

UConn responded with a 48-point second half, outscoring the Knights 12-2 over the final four minutes of the third quarter to take a 56-32 lead.

They cruised from there.

The Huskies held UCF to 33 percent shooting and the Knights made just four of their 15 shots from 3-point range.

Five Huskies scored in double figures. Kia Nurse had 13 points, Napheesa Collier added 12 and Crystal Dangerfield and Katie Lou Samuelson each chipped in with 11 points.

Gabby Williams had eight points, 13 rebounds and five assists.
