CINCINNATI — Breanna Stewart scored 16 points to lead eight players in double figures and No. 1 UConn extended its winning streak to 48 games with a 107-45 victory over Cincinnati on Wednesday night.

The Huskies (11-0, 1-0 American) have won 95 of their past 96 games and haven’t lost since Nov. 17, 2014, an 88-86 overtime defeat to Stanford in the second game of last season.

Stewart moved into third place on the school’s all-time scoring list, trailing only Maya Moore and Tina Charles.

UConn started fast on Wednesday and seldom took their foot off the gas. A 3-pointer by Kia Nurse capped the first of two 9-0 runs in the first half for Huskies. She finished with 10 points.

Seven UConn players scored led by Kia Nurse’s eight points and the Huskies went 4 of 6 from 3-point range to build a 31-11 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Sophomore guard Ana Owens scored 10 points to lead Cincinnati (4-8, 0-1) which fell to 0-15 all-time vs. UConn.
