UConn women win 106th in a row to reach Monday's AAC title game

One to go for the UConn women's basketball team in the American Athletic Conference Tournament.

The Huskies advanced to their fourth consecutive AAC championship game with a 78-56 win over fourth-seeded UCF in Sunday's semifinals. They also extended their NCAA-record winning streak to 106 games.

They play third-seeded South Florida Monday at 7 p.m. ET. UConn beat USF 96-68 last Monday to cap the ninth undefeated regular season in program history. USF advanced to the title game with a 63-58 victory against No. 2 seed Temple.

Gabby Williams (No. 15 above) and Napheesa Collier paced four Huskies in double-figure scoring against UCF with 16 points apiece. Collier also pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds for her 13th double-double of the season.

Crystal Dangerfield added 14 points off the bench. Katie Lou Samuelson (No. 33 above) chipped in 12 points, including her 100th career 3-pointer, the fourth-highest total in UConn history.

While the Huskies continue pile up victories, including 31 in a row this season, their primary focus is another streak. They are going for their fifth consecutive national championship.

They are on a roll, too, which might sound obvious about a team that hasn't lost since Nov. 17, 2014 (88-86 to Stanford in overtime).

But the Huskies have won their last five games by an average of 37.2 points since a scare on Feb. 18 in a 63-60 victory against Tulane .
