Storrs — Breanna Stewart led a balanced offense with 19 points and 10 rebounds as defending champion UConn routed Prairie View A&M 87-44 in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Sunday.

Stewart was among five Huskies (35-0) who scored in double figures on coach Geno Auriemma’s 60th birthday, giving him his 92nd NCAA tournament win.

Moriah Jefferson had 14 points, four assists and five steals. Bria Hartley had 16 points.

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. The Hawks beat Georgia 67-57 earlier Sunday.
