Mosqueda-Lewis, Stewart partnership could be special

Breanna Stewart is averaging 20.3 points per game in her first four
NCAA tournament games and has a chance to become the first freshman
since 2000 to have at least 100 points in the NCAA tourney.
The last time UConn had back to back No. 1 recruits play together the result was Tina Charles and Maya Moore leading the Huskies to consecutive national titles.

Now it is time for Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Breanna Stewart to try to return UConn to the top of the women's basketball mountain.

They have a chance to make a bit of history tonight.

If Mosqueda-Lewis scores six points and Stewart ends up with 19 they will become just the second pair of UConn teammates to score at least 100 points in the same NCAA tournament (Sue Bird and Asjha Jones accomplished that feat in 2002).

The scary thing for opponents is that the duo will have two more seasons to play together.

"I am really happy for her and proud of her," Mosqueda-Lewis said. "It does mesh well, she is somebody I have been playing with for so long (on USA Basketball teams) and we are so comfortable with each other that it is not really hard for us to find each other on the court if one of us is double teamed or try to get each other open especially if we are working together one of us is bound to be open."

You really struck "gold" in this "what if" Jim. Not only did they achieve what you mentioned but they did it in style. Their performance was one of the most devastating offensive displays that I can ever remember.
