    Katie Lou Samuelson scored 32 points and top-ranked UConn extended its record winning streak to 93 games on Sunday with a 100-56 rout of Tulane.

    The 6-foot-3 sophomore hit 11 of 18 shots to come within two points of her career scoring high set Tuesday in Tulsa.

    Kia Nurse added 18 points and Napheesa Collier had 17 for Connecticut (18-0, 6-0), which has never lost an American Athletic Conference Game. The Huskies are 60-0 in the regular season and 9-0 in the three conference tournaments.

    Collier hit the game's first shot and the Huskies led from start to finish for a ninth straight game.

    Kolby Morgan had 22 points to lead Tulane (12-7, 3-3 American). The junior guard has scored in double figures in 12 straight games, and more than 20 in her last four.
