HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 25 points and Bria Hartley added 19 to help No. 2 Connecticut beat third-ranked Stanford 68-58 on Monday night.
The pair carried the Huskies (3-0) for the first 25 minutes as the rest of their teammates couldn't make a shot.
Trailing by six at halftime, Stanford (3-1) went on a 10-2 run to start the second half, led by Nnemkadi Ogwumike. Her layup gave Stanford a 36-34 lead. UConn answered as Stefanie Dolson hit a layup — ending an 0-for-24 drought by the other Huskies to start the game — that began a 15-6 burst.
Ogwumike scored 22 points and freshman Jasmine Camp added a career-best 14 to lead the Cardinal.
These two teams have developed a vigorous rivalry over the past few years. Before this one, they had played five times in the last three seasons with three of those meetings coming in the Final Four.
UConn beat Stanford for the 2010 national championship and the Cardinal ended the Huskies' NCAA-record 90-game winning streak last December.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LaSondra Barrett scored 14 points and all 11 Lady Tigers in uniform hit from the field as LSU routed winless Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
Adrienne Webb added 12 points and Theresa Plaisance scored 11 for LSU (3-1). Barrett hit five of six shots and grabbed seven rebounds.
Lakendra Marsh scored 13 points for the Golden Lions (0-4), who turned the ball over 35 times.
