NEW ORLEANS (AP) Geno Auriemma hopes his UConn Huskies learned something after escaping with a victory at Tulane.

Napheesa Collier had 26 points and 12 rebounds and top-ranked Connecticut held off Tulane 63-60 on Saturday night to push its record winning streak to 101 games.

"We're not as good as everybody thinks we are and today was a perfect example of that," UConn coach Auriemma said. "They think that every shot that they take is supposed to go in and then when it doesn't go in they pout and they feel sorry for themselves and act like 12-year-olds and that's exactly what happened today. Not every shot is supposed to go in. God isn't punishing you. Figure out a way to help us win the game."
