CINCINNATI (AP) - Maya Moore scored 23 points to help No. 2 Connecticut to an easy 80-46 victory over outmanned Cincinnati on Saturday.
Tiffany Hayes added 16 points for UConn (20-1, 9-0 Big East) which won for the eighth straight time since having its 90-game win streak snapped in a loss to Stanford on Dec. 30.
Moore finished 11-for-14 shooting and had six assists for the Huskies, who have won 59 straight games against Big East Conference opponents.
Cincinnati (8-12, 1-7 Big East) had just seven available players due to injury. The Bearcats were led by Kayla Cook's 13 points.
The Huskies began the game with an 8-0 run and never looked back. Moore scored 19 points in the first half as UConn raced out to a 40-24 halftime lead.
Cincinnati was held scoreless for the first 7:49 of the second half.
