STORRS, Conn. (AP) 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.

Samuelson made three straight shots from 3-point range in the second quarter after missing five of her first six. She had 18 points at halftime and came out of the game for good with more than a minute left in the third quarter.

UConn shot 56 percent from the floor and had 31 points off 26 Tulane turnovers.

BIG PICTURE

UConn: UConn has not trailed since Dec. 11, when Kansas State took an early 4-2 lead in a 17-point UConn win. The biggest deficit the Huskies have faced during their winning streak came against Tulane last season when they trailed 13-2.

UP NEXT

Tulane: The Green Wave heads home to face Tulsa on Wednesday.

UConn: The Huskies will look to extend the winning streak to 94 at East Carolina on Tuesday before returning home to face Houston on Saturday.
