Breanna Stewart scored 21 points and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis added 17 to help top-seed Connecticut rout Kentucky 83-53 on Monday night and advance to a record sixth straight Final Four.

The Huskies will face either Notre Dame or Duke in the national semifinals on Sunday in New Orleans. The Irish and Blue Devils play Tuesday night.

UConn broke a tie with Stanford (2008-12), LSU (2004-08), and itself (2000-04) by reaching the Final Four again.

It was the second straight season that UConn (33-4) beat Kentucky in the regional finals. The Huskies topped the Wildcats by 15 last year 105 miles to the north of Bridgeport in Kingston, R.I. last year. UConn led that game by one early on the second half before pulling away. This game wasn't as close.

Trailing 23-22 midway through the first half, Stewart and the Huskies defense took over.
