Renee Montgomery scored a game-high 17 points to lead five Huskies in double figures, as No. 2 Connecticut cruised to a 90-64 victory over the No. 18 Panthers Sunday afternoon at Petersen Events Center.
Tina Charles added 16 points, Maya Moore 14, Charde Houston 13 and Ketia Swanier 12 for the Huskies (24-1, 11-1), who shot 50 percent (34 of 68) from the field.
It was the third consecutive defeat – and most lopsided loss of the season – for Pitt (18-7, 8-4). Mallorie Winn led the Panthers with 16 points, including four 3-pointers.
The Panthers shot 31.7 percent (19 of 60), and were outrebounded, 45-36. Marcedes Walker was held to five points and Shavonte Zellous nine.
Pitt finished the final eight minutes, 29 seconds of the first half without a field goal, as Connecticut turned a two-point deficit into a 14-point halftime lead.
