Freshman Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis enters her first Elite Eight game Tuesday already with 538 points and 91 three-pointers. Both numbers place her in the top echelon among scorers in program history.
Only Wendy Davis (107 in 1991-92), Renee Montgomery (99 in 2008-09) and Diana Taurasi (92) have ever scored more threes in a season than Mosqueda-Lewis. Her two threes Sunday against Penn State enabled her to pass Maya Moore , who had 90 in the 2008-09 season.
Mosqueda-Lewis, who will play in her 37th game Tuesday, is tied with Svetlana Abrosimova for second place for most points ever scored by a freshman in UConn history. Abrosimova did in 37 games. Moore’s 678 in 38 games in 2007-08 sets the pace. …The Huskies will play their 101st NCAA game Tuesday. They are 84-16 (.840) in 24 appearances. Only Tennessee has appeared in more tournament games. The Lady Vols will play their 135th Monday night in the Elite Eight against Baylor.
