LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Breanna Stewart had 22 points and 14 rebounds and top-ranked Connecticut blew out No. 3 Louisville 68-48 Monday night to complete an unbeaten regular season.

Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis added 13 points and 10 boards for the Huskies (31-0, 18-0 American Athletic Conference), who outrebounded Louisville (28-3, 16-2) 47-30 and outran the Cardinals to add the inaugural league title to their collection of Big East trophies. The defending NCAA champions also beat the Cardinals for the 14th straight time.

Like last month's meeting in Storrs, Conn., UConn turned a small run into big momentum ending with another decisive victory. This time, it was an 11-0 first-half spurt for a 32-22 lead that eventually grew to 22 in the second half.

The end of Louisville five-game winning streak spoiled the home finales for four seniors including guard Shoni Schimmel, who scored nine points before a school record crowd of 22,163.
