INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Morgan Tuck scored 21 points and Breanna Stewart added 16 to help UConn rout Oregon State 80-51 in record fashion Sunday night in the women's Final Four.

The Huskies are one victory away from a fourth consecutive national championship fulfilling Stewart's goal. A feat never accomplished before in women's basketball.

If UConn does win on Tuesday night coach Geno Auriemma will have an 11th national championship moving him past vaunted UCLA men's basketball coach John Wooden for the most all time.

The 29-point victory was the biggest margin of victory in women's Final Four history, surpassing the 28-point win by Tennessee over Arkansas in 1998. It was UConn's 74th consecutive victory, the second-longest winning streak in NCAA and school history.
