STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Freshman Crystal Dangerfield scored 19 points, Katie Lou Samuelson added 16 and No. 3 UConn extended its winning streak to 77 games with a 72-61 victory over second-ranked Baylor on Thursday night.

The streak is the second longest in women's college basketball history, standing 13 short of the school record set by the Huskies from 2008-10.

The Huskies have already knocked off No. 12 Florida State and now Baylor.

With the game tied at 54 early in the fourth quarter, UConn took over. The Huskies scored 16 of the next 18 points to put the game away. Dangerfield, a diminutive guard, made a spectacular layup with 4:03 left that brought the near sellout crowd to its feet and made it 62-56. Baylor (2-1) couldn't recover.



SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Arike Ogunbowale scored 18 points, Brianna Turner added 14 and Notre Dame overcame poor shooting and held on in a Preseason WNIT semifinal.

Notre Dame (3-0) went up 7-0 but couldn't extend the lead to double digits until early in the second half and couldn't shake the Phoenix (2-1), even after going up by 17 midway through the third quarter.

Green Bay cut the lead to 63-58 with a basket by Jessica Lindstrom with 3:41 left. The Phoenix had a chance to get closer but Mehryn Kraker airballed a 3-point attempt and Turner scored on an alley-oop pass.

Kraker cut the lead to 66-61 with a 3-pointer, but Marina Mabrey made two free throws with 35 seconds left and then deflected a 3-point attempt by Lindstrom. The Phoenix cut the lead to five points again on a 3-pointer by Lindstrom and the final four-point deficit on a 3-pointer by Frankie Wurtz with 3 seconds left.



TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Shakayla Thomas had 15 of her 20 points in the first half for Florida State.

The Seminoles (2-1) led 12-2 midway through the first quarter and hit their last eight shots to make it 29-13. Ivy Slaughter made it nine straight to start the second quarter, and Florida State led 46-22 at halftime.

Florida State, which lost 78-76 to No. 3 UConn on Monday, made 8 of 11 shots in the third quarter to push the lead to 74-38.

The Seminoles got 10 points apiece from Imani Wright and Chatrice White.

Sherranda Reddick had 17 points for the Dolphins (2-1).

Since the 2012-13 season, FSU is 23-3 against teams from Florida.



LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Makenzie Cann made six 3-pointers and scored 20 points and Evelyn Akhator had another double-double for Kentucky.

Akhator had 17 points and 11 rebounds, her fourth-straight double-double dating to last season.

Cann, a transfer from Cincinnati, is the first Wildcat since A'Dia Mathies in March 2013 with six 3s, finishing three points shy of her career high with the Bearcats.

Kentucky (3-0) took control with a 27-11 run in the second quarter for a 44-20 halftime lead and then outscored New Hampshire 30-9 in the third quarter.


No. 17 WASHINGTON 79, No. 25 MISSOURI 66

SEATTLE (AP) — Kelsey Plum scored 32 points, moving into third place on the Pac-12's all-time scoring list, and Washington advanced to the finals of the Preseason WNIT.

Plum scored 18 points in the first half, but it was a decisive third quarter that allowed Washington (3-0) to pull away. The Huskies outscored Missouri 24-15 in the third quarter and led by as many as 22 points in the fourth.

Plum was 10 of 23 from the field and moved past former Stanford star Nnemkadi Ogwumike on the conference's scoring list.

Chantel Osahor added 18 points, while Natalie Romeo and Heather Corral had 12 each.

Cierra Porter, the daughter of Washington men's assistant coach Michael Porter, led Missouri (2-1) with 16 points.



CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Tyra Buss hit four 3-pointers and scored 23 points for Indiana.

Alexis Gassion added 15 points, eight rebounds and eight assists for the Hoosiers (3-0) and Amanda Cahill and reserve Jenn Anderson had 12 points each.

Gassion's jumper with 22 seconds left provided the final margin. The Mocs (1-2) turned the ball over with 8 seconds remaining and Gassion made two free throws with 4 seconds left.

Buss, who has scored in double figures in 40 straight games, made three free throws with 1 second to go in the first half to give Indiana a 37-32 lead in a game neither team led by double figures.

Keiana Gilbert led Chattanooga with 19 points.
