Prepping For UConn-Stanford, Volume 6

|

No. 2 UConn will meet No. 1 Stanford today at a sold-out Maples Pavilion (4 p.m.; ESPNU). All week I took a look back at the first 13 games of the series.

Here is a glance at the last meeting between the teams Nov. 21, 2011 …

Freshman Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis quickly put her stamp on the series by scoring 19 of her game-high 25 points in the first half to lead the Huskies to a 68-58 victory at the XL Center. She was 10-of-17 from field (3-of-8 3-pointers) and added eight rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes.

“I think coming to Connecticut you get as many chances as you could ever want to play in a big game like this,’’ Mosqueda-Lewis said after the game. “If you want to do great things, you have to expect great things from yourself. I expected to play as hard as I could, and it came out in my favor.’’

Bria Hartley finished with 19 points, three rebounds, four assists and three steals for UConn. All-American Nneka Ogwumike led Stanford with 22 points and eight rebounds

Tiffany Hayes keyed a critical 17-6 run by the Huskies in the second half with a 3-pointer as they built a 55-44 lead with 7:38 left. The Cardinal did not get closer than six (57-51) down the stretch.
