STANFORD, Calif. — Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and second-ranked Connecticut played spoiler and streak-buster this time, snapping No. 1 Stanford's nation-leading 82-game home unbeaten run with a surprisingly easy 61-35 rout Saturday.
It was the Huskies who saw the end of their NCAA record 90-game winning streak at Maples Pavilion with a 71-59 loss two years ago, almost to the day on Dec. 30.
Mosqueda-Lewis scored 19 points as UConn (11-0) thoroughly outplayed Stanford (11-1) on both ends of the floor in this highly touted game featuring the country's top programs and Final Four regulars from opposite coasts.
Stanford got harassed right off the home floor that it ruled with perfection and dominant play for nearly six years — and the Huskies surely took the Cardinal's No. 1 spot along with it.
Chiney Ogwumike had 18 points and 13 rebounds as Stanford lost at Maples Pavilion for the first time since March 2007.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Kayla McBride scored 18 points, Natalie Achonwa had 15 points and 17 rebounds, and Skylar Diggins shook off early foul trouble to finish with 16 points Saturday to help Notre Dame rout Purdue.
Courtney Moses led the Boilermakers (11-2) with 13 points and Taylor Manuel added 12.
Diggins also had her 300th career steal 5:37 into the second half when she poked the ball away from Courtney Moses and drove in for a layup, which pushed Notre Dame's lead to 23. The senior guard is the third player in Notre Dame history with at least 300 career steals.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Alyssa Thomas had 22 points and 11 rebounds, helping No. 9 Maryland cruise to a victory over Hartford in the championship game of the Terrapin Classic.
Tianna Hawkins scored 16 points and Alicia DeVaughn added 13 points and 13 rebounds for Maryland (10-2), which has won six straight games. The Terrapins improved to 96-5 in non-conference games at Comcast Center.
NORMAN, Okla. — Aaryn Ellenberg scored 24 points, and Portia Durrett had 14 points and 10 rebounds to lead Oklahoma to a victory over Cal State Northridge.
Ellenberg was 5 of 9 from 3-point range for the Sooners (10-2), who made 12 of 28 from behind the arc in their last non-conference tuneup before the start of Big 12 play.
Janae Sharpe and Jianni Jackson scored 12 points each for the Matadors (6-5).
Nicole Griffin had 11 points and Sharane Campbell 10 points, six rebounds and six assists for Oklahoma.
The Sooners used all 10 players on the active roster, including OU volleyball players Tara Dunn and Eden Williams, who made their debuts after joining the injury-riddled basketball squad last week. Four players, including preseason All-Big 12 selection Whitney Hand, have been lost to season-ending injuries.
BOULDER, Colo. — Lexy Kresl scored 20 points to lead unbeaten Colorado over New Mexico.
Kresl was 5 of 5 from 3-point range, tying a school record for most 3-point attempts without a miss.
