    Connecticut's Christyn Williams (13) heads to the basket past Saint Louis' Myia Clark (32) during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2018, in St. Louis.

    Napheesa Collier had 22 points and 11 rebounds, Katie Lou Samuelson scored 20 points and top-ranked UConn beat Saint Louis 98-42 on Tuesday night.

    The Huskies (8-0) have won 123 consecutive regular season games. Crystal Dangerfield added 18 points, and Christyn Williams had 17.

    Myia Clark led Saint Louis (4-5) with 18 points.

    UConn rolled to a 15-2 lead and never looked back. Samuelson propelled the early outburst with a pair of 3-pointers, and Collier had a short jumper. Williams hit a 3-pointer with less than a minute to go in the first quarter to push the lead to 23-8.

    Collier grew up in the St. Louis suburb of O'Fallon, Missouri, and requested over 300 tickets for family and friends. She recorded her sixth double-double in eight games.
