There is something about the Al McGuire Center that appeals to sophomore Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis. Maybe it is the venue’s lighting. Maybe it is some friendly rims. Whatever it is, though, Mosqueda-Lewis has thrived in two career games there against Marquette.
She scored a game-high 24 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the field (4-of-7 3-pointers) in Saturday’s 85-51 win. Mosqueda-Lewis tallied a career-high 27 points on 9-of-19 shooting (5-of-9) in an 85-45 win last season.
“I really like this gym,’’ Mosqueda-Lewis said “This gym is definitely a shooter’s gym. I came into shootaround (Saturday) morning and just felt good. All the shots were going in.’’
Mosqueda-Lewis, who leads the Huskies in scoring (16.9), has been a trusted contributor offensively this season. She has scored in double figures in 12 of her 14 games; scored at least 15 points in 11 games; and scored at least 20 points in three of the last eight games.
“I feel like I just have to do my part every single game for this team,’’ Mosqueda-Lewis said “I have to go out there and I have to, obviously, score. I have to play good defense. Just kind of make sure that I’m consistent with everything across the stat sheet. I get a lot of help with Stefanie (Dolson) and Bria (Hartley) and Kelly (Faris) so it’s not that much really that I have to worry about.’’
