STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn’s players had a couple of presents for coach Geno Auriemma on his 60th birthday.
The first was a video in which they altered the words to the Commodores classic song “Brick House” to have a little fun at his expense.
The second was an 87-44 rout of Prairie View A&M on Sunday, giving Auriemma his 92nd NCAA tournament win. Breanna Stewart led a balanced offense with 19 points and 10 rebounds.
LaReahn Washington scored 13 points to lead Prairie View. The Southwestern Athletic Conference tournament champions finish their season at 14-18.
The Huskies, who just completed their seventh undefeated regular season, are looking for a record ninth NCAA title. They will face Saint Joseph’s in a second-round game Tuesday night.
