    Maya Moore spent her last night on the floor at Gampel Pavilion doing what she does best, winning.  She scored 16 points to help the UConn women past ninth-seeded Purdue 64-40 to head into the Sweet 16.

    The victory is UConn's 22nd straight overall and 83rd in a row at home and puts them into the regional semifinals for the 18th consecutive season.

    They'll now take on Georgetown Sunday at noon at Temple University, a team they've defeated twice this season.

    If the Huskies win their next four games, it'll be their third consecutive national championship.
