Summary: UConn So. sensation and All-American candidate F Breanna Stewart was everywhere on both sides of the court (even ending up with a SportsCenter Top 10 (#9 to be exact) highlight block on her way to being named the inaugural American Tournament MVP as she led UConn to yet another 20-point victory over Louisville, 72-52. Stewart was helped by fellow All-Tournament members UConn All-Americans Sr. G Bria Hartley (16 points and 6 assists), Sr. C Stefanie Dolson (10 points and 16 rebounds), and Jr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (13 points and 4 rebounds). The Huskies have now won 40 straight games - the third-longest streak in school history. It was the third straight game that UConn put a team away by the end of the first half. Shoni Schimmel led Louisville with 20 points, but was 7 for 25 from the field. She had little help as no other Cardinals player reached double figures. Once again, Louisville had no answer for the Huskies, losing for the third time this season and the 16th straight time overall. The Cardinals have only beaten the Huskies once and that was in the first meeting between the schools back in 1993.
