1/1 Connecticut Huskies (37-0, 21-0 AAC)

Results: Connecticut 70, BYU 51
Player of the Game: Jr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (19p, 13r, 4a, 1s, 36m)

Fr. Player of the Game: none
Stat of the Game: 2nd Chance Pts.: UConn 27, BYU 9

Summary:  UConn All-American Jr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis followed up her triple-double with a double-double of 19pts and 13rebs (career-high 8 offensive) as UConn pulled away midway through the SECOND half to defeat BYU, 70-51. UConn season scoring leaders Breanna Stewart and Bria Hartley overcame slow starts, with Stewart having 12 of her 16 in the second half and Hartley all 12 after halftime. At the end of the day, it wasn't pretty or easy (it isn't supposed to be), but a win is a win and UConn now moves onto the Elite 8 and awaits the winner of the Texas A&M-DePaul winner.
