The Huskies (37-0) did not come out strong to start the game -- but finished with a flourish as they won going away, 70-51.
The Cougars finish a highly successful season with a record of 28-7 -- their best outcome since 2002 when Erin Thorn led BYU to the Sweet 16 before losing to Tennessee.
BYU actually trailed by just one point at halftime, 30-29, before the 37-0 Huskies showed why they were the overall No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, going on a 7-0 run several minutes into the first half.
By that point the Huskies were ahead for good -- and increased their lead to as many as 20 with four minutes left to play.
Kim Beeston led BYU with 16 points and made four three-point shots -- but UConn held the Cougars’ leading scorer, center Jennifer Hamson in check.
Hamson scored just nine points and had 13 rebounds and six blocks in her last game at BYU.
