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
 difference.
 
 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.
