WIN NO. 111

No. 1 UConn 90, Oregon 52 (Bridgeport, Connecticut): For the 10th consecutive season, Connecticut is headed to the Final Four. The Huskies' win over 10-seed Oregon gave coach Geno Auriemma his 113th NCAA tournament victory. Auriemma previously shared the record with the late Pat Summitt. UConn advances to Dallas in search of its fifth consecutive national championship and riding a 36-0 record this season. Team defense and an efficient offense were the two keys to the Huskies' victory. UConn, which forced Oregon into 22 turnovers, finished with four players in double figures, led by a game-high 28 points from sophomore Napheesa Collier. Gabby Williams added 25 points (9-of-13 shooting) and battled all night with Oregon freshmen Mallory McGwire and Ruthy Hebard in the low post, siphoning off passing lanes and preventing the Oregon offense from running through its post players. The Huskies removed any drama with a 17-0 run in the first quarter.

No. 1 UConn 66, No. 6 South Carolina 55: The Huskies extended their NCAA-record winning streak to triple digits behind Williams' career-high 26 points (she also had 14 rebounds). Collier had 18 points for UConn, which hasn't lost since November 2014. Leading scorer Katie Lou Samuelson didn't score in the first half, and junior leader Nurse missed most of the half after aggravating a right ankle injury. But UConn scored the final seven points of the first half to take a 35-29 halftime lead. Samuelson finished with six points on 2-of-12 shooting.
