STORRS, Conn. — Tiffany Hayes scored 17 points and No. 3 Connecticut beat Cincinnati 80-37 Thursday, extending the Huskies' NCAA-record home winning streak to 96 consecutive games.

Stefanie Dolson added 14 points and eight rebounds for UConn (16-2, 5-1 Big East), and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis had 10 points and seven rebounds.

Dayeesha Hollins had 15 of her 18 points in the first half for Cincinnati (9-9, 0-5), which fell to .500 after its fourth consecutive loss, including three to Top 10 teams.
