Women's College Basketball

                  === No. 1 Stanford women routed by UConn ===
 Stanford,  CA (Sports  Network) -  The most  anticipated game  of the  2012-13
 women's college basketball season proved to be no contest at all.
 Kaleena  Mosqueda-Lewis scored a game-high 19 points and Connecticut put forth
 a  dominating defensive  display that propelled the second-ranked Huskies to a
 authoritative 61-35 victory over No. 1 Stanford at Maples Pavilion, ending the
 Cardinal's 82-game home winning streak in the process.
 Stefanie  Dolson compiled 10 points and 14 rebounds to help Connecticut (12-0)
 almost  certainly  overtake the Cardinals for  the top spot in Monday's polls,
 but  it was  the Huskies'  efforts  on the  other  end that  made the  biggest
 UConn  held Stanford  to a brutal 19.3 (11-of-57) shooting percentage from the
 field  and forced  14 turnovers in leading virtually start-to-finish, with the
 Cardinal mustering a mere 13 points in the first half.
 Chiney Ogwumike amassed 18 points and 13 rebounds for Stanford (11-1), but hit
 on  just  6-of-22 field  goal attempts. Joslyn  Tinkle, the Cardinals' second-
 leading scorer, managed only two points on 1-of-5 shooting.
 Stanford  hadn't been  dealt a defeat at Maples Pavilion since a 68-61 setback
 to Florida State on Mar. 19, 2007.
 After  the teams battled to a 5-5 tie early on, Connecticut embarked on a 24-4
 run  over  the next 13-plus minutes  to build a commanding 20-point advantage.
 Stanford  would  make just five  baskets in 33 tries  over the duration of the
 first half in falling behind by a 31-13 score at the break.
 UConn  maintained a  comfortable lead  the rest  of the  way, with  the margin
 growing  to  as many as  27 points after  an 8-0 spurt  put the Huskies on top
 61-34 entering the final three minutes.
