UConn's Mosqueda-Lewis named Big East's top freshman

 With eight Freshman of the Week selections during the season, there wasn’t a heck of a lot of suspense surrounding the announcement of the Big East’s Freshman of the Year award.
Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, a sweet-shooting Californian who had eight 20-point games and scored in double figures 24 times became the 12th UConn player to win the Big East’s top freshman/rookie award and second straight as Bria Hartley was last year’s winner.
It is second straight day that Mosqueda-Lewis was honored by the conference as she was named the Big East Sixth Man of the Year on Thursday.
Mosqueda-Lewis was UConn’s second-leading scorer during the regular season, averaging 14.4 points and she set a program freshman record with 75 3-pointers.
She was the only Husky to win an individual award. Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins won the Player of the Year award while the Coach of the Year was Kim Barnes Arico of St. John’s. It’s the first time since 2007 that UConn did not receive either Big East’s Coach of the Year or Player of the Year award.
St. John’s senior and former Trinity Catholic star Da’Shena Stevens was named the Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
