Summary: For only the 3rd game this season, UConn had it's full roster available and just in time for the big showdown of undefeated 1 vs. 2. For the 11th game this season (out of 11), UConn made its opponent look like they didn't belong. UConn All-American Jr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis made her first appearance back on the court after injurying her shooting elbow against Stanford almost 5 weeks ago, coming off the bench to hit a career-high 7 3s and score 21pts. in 27mins. as the Huskies annihilated Duke (once again), 83-61 tonight in the 2013 Women's Jimmy V Classic. UConn All-American candidate So. F Breanna Stewart led the charge with a double-double of 24pts. and 11rebs. while adding 3asts., and 3blks. as UConn led by as many as 27pts. in the 2nd half after leading by as many as 23pts. in the first. By the 2nd media timeout in the 1st half, Stewart had more pts. (12) than Duke did as a team (11). UConn All-American Sr. C Stefanie Dolson was her usual brilliant self finishing 14pts., 9rebs., 6asts., 2stls., 2blks. while playing 38mins. and So. G Moriah Jefferson showed once again that she is the point guard of the future for the Huskies chipping in 9pts., 3rebs., 7asts., and 3stls. in what UConn Head Coach Geno Auriemma described as "her best game in a UConn uniform".
