NEW YORK (AP) Breanna Stewart had 18 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks to lead No. 2 UConn to a 70-54 win over St. John's on Sunday at the Maggie Dixon Classic.
Morgan Tuck led the Huskies (12-1) with 23 points while Moriah Jefferson added 16.
UConn led by seven at the half before Tuck fueled a 13-2 run, scoring 11 straight points. Her 3-pointer made it 51-33 with 16:09 left in the game.
St. John's (12-2) didn't get closer than 11 the rest of the way.
The annual women's doubleheader at MSG honors former Army coach Maggie Dixon, who died of heart arrhythmia in 2006 at age 28. The first game on Sunday honored the legacy of women's basketball at the Garden. It was a rematch between Immaculata and Queens College, the first women's game ever played at MSG 40 years ago.
Queens College won Sunday's game 76-60.
