PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Breanna Stewart scored a career-high 37 points and Bria Hartley had 16 points and 11 assists, leading No. 1 Connecticut to its 28th straight win, 93-56 over Temple on Tuesday night.
The Huskies (22-0, 9-0 American Athletic Conference) shook off a rare early challenge to turn yet another game into a romp. Stewart made 10 of 11 shots in the first half and scored 25 points to thwart any hope the Owls had for pulling off the upset.
UConn center Stefanie Dolson had 11 points and 13 rebounds when she limped off the court with 8 minutes left. She had her right foot taped and did not return.
Rateska Brown led the Owls (10-10, 4-5) with 13 points.
Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, who had 18 points, hit a basket at the halftime buzzer that lifted Connecticut to a 49-32 lead. The Huskies missed 8 of 10 3-pointers and still shot 61 percent from the floor (18 of 23 inside the arc). Hartley, who had scored at least 30 points in each of her last three games, had nine points in the half.
NO. 5 LOUISVILLE 80, RUTGERS 71

Louisville (21-1, 9-0 American Athletic Conference) trailed 48-42 in the second half before Schimmel and Sara Hammond took over. Schimmel's 3-pointer started a 22-9 run over the next 8 minutes. Hammond followed with eight straight points, hitting a 3-pointer from the wing and then a three-point play.
Schimmel's 3-pointer from the corner made it 64-57.
Rutgers (15-5, 6-3) closed to 66-63 on Tyler Scaife's jumper with 4:53 left, but could get no closer.
Scaife, a freshman guard, led the Scarlet Knights with a season-high 25 points.
