New York — Breanna Stewart matched her career high with 29 points to lift No. 1 UConn to an 80-47 rout of No. 21 California on Sunday in the Maggie Dixon Classic at Madison Square Garden.

Stewart had 10 rebounds for the Huskies (12-0), who were coming off a rout of No. 2 Duke on Tuesday night.

Just as in that game, the sensational sophomore made her presence felt early and often. She had 13 of the Huskies’ first 16 points and finished the half With 21 — one more than Cal had at that point.

UConn led by 20 at halftime and Cal (7-3) could get no closer in the second half thanks to Stewart and a stingy Huskies defense.

Stewart left the game for good with 12 minutes left and her team up 30 points.

Cal was coming off the most successful season in school history with a trip to the Final Four last April.

The Golden Bears had no answer for Stewart. Then again few teams have this season.
