UConn handles Oregon

EUGENE, Ore. — Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 19 points and No. 1 Connecticut celebrated its return to the top of the rankings with a 95-51 victory against Oregon on Monday.

Earlier in the day, the Huskies took over the No. 1 spot in The Associated Press poll for the first time since the end of the 2010-11. They followed with their 12th win to remain undefeated.

Stefanie Dolson had 16 points and Caroline Doty had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Huskies.

Jillian Alleyne had 18 points to lead the Ducks (2-10). Oregon went scoreless in the first five minutes and last five minutes of the first half and trailed 54-24 at the break.

No. 5 Notre Dame 129, St. Francis, Pa. 55: Markisha Wright scored 20 points for Notre Dame in a romp past St. Francis, Pa..

Notre Dame (10-1) dominated on both ends of the floor, forcing 33 turnovers and turning those into 49 points. The Irish led 63-25 at the break, their largest halftime lead of the season.

Alexa Hayward led the Red Flash (5-6) with 13 points.

Natalie Achonwa and Kayla McBride made easy shots from the low post for Notre Dame, many off give-and-gos from point guard Skylar Diggins.

Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw had her reserves, including Wright, in the game with 13 minutes to play in the first half. It was the final pre-Big East tuneup for the Irish before their conference opener Jan. 5 at No. 1 Connecticut.

No. 11 Lousiville 88, Tennessee State. 25: Monique Reid scored 20 points and Sara Hammond and Sheronne Vails each had double-doubles as Louisville earned a third consecutive blowout victory by beating Tennessee State.

63-point margin of victory was the sixth largest in Cardinals’ history — they notched the second largest with a 74-point win over Wagner in their last game on Dec. 21.

The Cardinals have beaten their past three opponents by an average of 59.3 points. The team also has victories of 56, 47, 38 and 34 points this year.
