MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (Ticker) -- Connecticut still has yet to be challenged in the NCAA Tournament.
Sue Bird scored a career-high 26 points and dished out 11 assists and Diana Taurasi added 22 points as the top-seeded Huskies remained unbeaten and returned to the Final Four with an 85-64 rout over No. 7 Old Dominion in the Mideast Region.
Connecticut won its first three tournament games by an average of better than 34 points and has taken every game but one this season by double digits. It is two wins away from the third undefeated season in school history after easily disposing of the Lady Monarchs.

Connecticut made 21-of-28 shots, including 5-of-8 3-pointers, in the first half en route to a 55-33 lead. The Huskies never trailed after scoring the first five points and had a 20-4 lead just 5:15 in.
UConn took just 19 shots in the final 20 minutes but made 11-of-14 free throws and never was threatened.
Asjha Jones had 18 points, seven rebounds and five blocks as the Huskies held a 31-25 rebounding edge and recorded 11 blocks and 10 steals.
