INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — It’s UConn, again.

Breanna Stewart scored 24 points to lead the undefeated Huskies to their 11th national championship and fourth straight with an 82-51 win over Syracuse on Tuesday night.

Morgan Tuck added 19 points and Moriah Jefferson had 13 for the Huskies, who have now won 75 consecutive games, and 122 of their last 123, all by double digits.

Brittney Sykes had 12 points for Syracuse (30-8), which was making its first appearance in the title game.

The Huskies (38-0) have been simply dominant with Stewart, Jefferson and Tuck, who have helped the team to an NCAA record 151 wins over their four years. The three seniors left to the hugs of coaches and teammates with 1:46 left.
