DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Maya Moore scored 14 of her 20 points in the second half, and top-ranked Connecticut claimed its 57th consecutive victory by routing No. 6 Duke 81-48 on Monday night.
Kalana Greene added 18 points for the Huskies (18-0), who never trailed, shot 53.6 percent, hit 52 percent of their 3-pointers and used a big run early in the second half to snap the Blue Devils' 23-game winning streak at Cameron Indoor Stadium in decisive fashion.
Jasmine Thomas scored 17 points for Duke (15-3), the only team to play each of the top three in the Associated Press' preseason Top 25. The Blue Devils finished 1-2 against that gauntlet, beating then-No. 3 Ohio State before losing to Stanford and UConn by an average of 24.5 points.
