FRIENDLY FOE: Mosqueda-Lewis is averaging 25.5 points and is 9-of-16 from 3-point range in two career games against Marquette . This will be the first time she will face the Golden Eagles at home.

MISMATCH: The departure of West Virginia to the Big 12 meant that the Huskies would play two teams twice. Notre Dame was a natural fit. But Marquette drew the short straw. UConn won 85-51 last month in Milwaukee and has won all eight games in the series. The last six games have been decided by an average of 32.8 points.
