Mosqueda-Lewis added another Big East honor

UConn's Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis has been named the Big East's Freshman of the Week for a sixth time after averaging 16.7 points and 6.7 rebounds in wins over North Carolina, Cincinnati and DePaul.

Mosqueda-Lewis had 15 points, six rebounds and two assists in win over North Carolina, had 10 points and seven rebounds in a victory over Cincinnati and wrapped up her week by tying her career high with 25 points in Saturday's win at DePaul. Mosqueda-Lewis leads up in scoring, averaging 14.8 points per game and also had a team-high 50 3-pointers. She is the fifth UConn freshman with 50 3-pointers. Maya Moore set the school record for 3's by a Connecticut frosh with 73, topping Diana Taurasi's total of 71. Bria Hartley made a run at that mark last season before finishing with 69. Ann Strother and Jen Rizzotti finished with 58 and 53 during their freshman year.

It is the sixth time Mosqueda-Lewis has been named the Freshman of the Week, which ties her with eight other players including teammate Bria Hartley and former Huskies Svetlana Abrosimova and Tina Charles for the third most in Big East history.

She needs one more to tie former UConn star Rebecca Lobo for second on the all-time list. Maya Moore set the conference record with 10 selections in the 2007-08 season.
