OMAHA, Neb. — Nika Muhl scored 15 of her season-high 19 points in the first quarter and No. 1 Connecticut won the outright Big East regular-season championship with an 81-49 victory over Creighton on Thursday night. 

The Huskies are 19-1 overall and 16-0 in league play.

They never lost a league game in their seven years in the American Athletic Conference, and now they’re two wins away from being perfect in their return to the Big East. 

Temi Carda had a season-high 24 points for Creighton.
