CANCUN, Mexico (AP) -Senior guard Renee Montgomery shook off a shooting slump with seven three-pointers and 25 points to lead the No. 1 UConn Huskies to an 83-71 over Florida State on Sunday in the finale of the Caribbean Classic at the Moon Palace Resort.

Montgomery was 4 of 19 from three-point range in her past three games. But she finished 7-for-11 on Sunday, within one of the program’s single-game record for threes, set in 1991 by Wendy Davis, now head coach at Trinity College in Hartford, Conn.

Sophomore Maya Moore added 18 points and junior center Kaili McLaren had 10 points and a career-high seven assists.

Tanae Davis-Cain led the Seminoles (9-4) with 25 points, including 5 of 9 three-pointers. Guard Courtney Ward added 14 and Alysha Harvin had 11.
