DAYTON — Maya Moore scored 22 points to lead Connecticut past Florida State 90-50 on Tuesday night, sending the defending champions back to the Final Four and stretching their unprecedented win streak to 76 games.
Tina Charles controlled the paint with 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Huskies (37-0), who advance to their eighth Final Four since 2000 where they will meet Baylor in the semifinals.
The 40-point victory was the largest margin ever in a regional final.
Jacinta Monroe had 15 points for the Seminoles (29-6), who set a school record for victories while going deeper in the NCAA tournament than any FSU team before.
Moore had 11 points early then watched from the bench in foul trouble as Charles and her supporting cast stretched the lead. Moore then returned with eight quick points after the break as the Huskies sealed the deal.
