BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Morgan Tuck scored 22 points and Breanna Stewart added 21 points and 13 rebounds to lead top-seeded UConn back to the Final Four with an 86-65 victory over Texas on Monday night in the Bridgeport Regional.

It's UConn's ninth straight trip to the Final Four where it will be trying for a record fourth consecutive national championship. A feat never accomplished in the sport.

The victory, UConn's 73rd straight overall, was also the school's 22nd consecutive one in the postseason, breaking a tie with Tennessee for the most in a row.

Two more victories will give coach Geno Auriemma an 11th title, moving him past vaunted UCLA men's coach John Wooden for most all-time in college basketball history.
