UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Katie Lou Samuelson had a record-breaking night, scoring 40 points and hitting all 10 of her 3-point shots to lead top-ranked UConn to a 100-44 rout of South Florida in the American Athletic Conference tournament final on Monday.

Samuelson set a Division I record for consecutive 3-pointers in a game and also set the tournament’s single-game scoring mark.

Napheesa Collier added 15 points as the Huskies won their 107th straight game and extended their conference winning streak to 82 games.

UConn has not lost to an AAC opponent since the league was formed four seasons ago, and this one was never in doubt. The Huskies have beaten the Bulls in all 23 of their meetings.

Samuelson scored eight points and hit her first two 3-pointers during an opening 12-0 run for the Huskies.

South Florida Coach Jose Fernandez used three of his four timeouts in the first quarter in an attempt to slow UConn down, but Collier’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer from the left corner made it 30-11 after one.

Samuelson gave UConn its first 40-point lead with her eighth shot from behind the arc in the second quarter.

She had 29 points in the first half, and the Huskies, who did not trail at any point during the tournament, led 62-23 at the break.

Samuelson played just eight minutes in the second half.

Dorottya Nagy had a season-high 15 points and Kitija Laksa added 13 for South Florida (24-8).

UConn has won 22 conference titles, dating to the program’s days in the Big East.
