                     === Connecticut crushes Marquette ===
 
 Storrs,  CT (Sports  Network)  -  All five  of  Connecticut's starters  scored
 double-digits  in  points as  the third-ranked  Huskies handled Marquette with
 ease, 94-37, on Tuesday.
 
 Kaleena  Mosqueda-Lewis scored  a game-high  22 points  of 8-for-10  shooting,
 including  5-of-6  from three-point  range. Bria Hartley  had 20 points, while
 Stefanie  Dolson recorded 15 points and four blocks for the Huskies (21-1, 8-1
 Big East), who have won nine straight.
 
 Connecticut  shot 54.7 percent from the field and was 15-of-23 from behind the
 arc.
 
 Brooklyn  Pumroy  was the only member  of Marquette to record double-digits in
 points,  scoring 11 for the Golden Eagles (11-11, 3-6), who came into the game
 off a win against DePaul on Saturday.
 
 Marquette was offensively inept, shooting just 25 percent for the game.
 
 The  game was  out of reach for  the Golden Eagles before the first half could
 even  end. Pumroy  made a  3-pointer in  the first  35 seconds,  but Marquette
 would  not score any points for the next six minutes, as the Huskies went on a
 19-0 run.
 
 Connecticut  continuously pounded  against Marquette, scoring 31 points in the
 first nine minutes alone. By halftime, the score was 62-17.
 
 The  Huskies didn't let  up in the second half. Though they recorded only half
 as  many  points  as the  first,  they  limited  Marquette  to score  just  20
 points on 8-of-26 shooting.
