The UConn women's basketball team shattered multiple records in their 140-52 victory over 16th-seeded Saint Francis (Pa.) on Saturday.
U-Conn.'s 94 points at the half set an NCAA Division I women's basketball record for most points in a half.
Azura Stevens and Napheesa Collier led the Huskies with 26 and 25 points respectively.
With 140 total points, U-Conn. set the new NCAA-tournament single-game record for points in a game, bettering Alabama's record of 121 points, set in 1995 in four overtimes.
That's what you call it when a team wins by 88 points, right?
But this tournament game was something special and will be remembered for years to come: their efficiency was outrageously impressive. ESPN's Darren Rovell opined that such one-sidedness is bad for the sport's growth, while USA Today declared that Saturday's game "was a loss for women's college basketball". "And how many open shots can we get?'"

In the co-main-event, a light-heavyweight rematch between London's own Jimi Manuwa and Poland's Jan Blachowicz will go down. Prior to to this, the the towering Russian earned back-to- back decisions over Roy Nelson and Timothy Johnson.
St. Francis' nothing-to-lose approach included the decision to shoot many 3-pointers and actually run a fastbreak, decisions that only pushed UConn downcourt in their own break faster. The previous record was Long Beach State's 80 points in 1987.
"We pass the ball well enough and we're unselfish enough that when teams want to play like that, it's just not fair", Auriemma said.
UConn was 39-for-53 from the field in the first half.
For most people, the only question going in was "How many points will they win by?" U.Conn.'s 88-point win is the second-largest in NCAA men's or women's tournament history, behind Baylor women's basketball's 89-point win against Texas Southern past year. The Baylor Lady Bears beat Texas Southern by 89 points during last year's tournament.
Perhaps there is an argument that having one team stand above the others hurts women's basketball on balance (though UConn didn't even win the title past year, and imbalance was hardly fatal for men's college hoops during John Wooden's tenure at UCLA, for the NBA during Bill Russell's time with the Celtics or for baseball during the four consecutive decades during which the Yankees dominated the league). The Huskies haven't lost in the opening round since 1993.
The left-back ran at Solly March, pinning back the winger, before laying back into space for Matic to play the ball in. On the weekend of April 21/22 he will get the chance to extend that record in a Wembley semi-final.
Anxiously you await Selection Sunday, print out a bracket and count down the hours until March Madness officially begins. It may be unwise to have all four No. 1 seeds in your Final Four , but dipping down below a No. 4 seed is equally risky.
