Mosqueda-Lewis finding her game at UConn

After putting together one of her most complete games of the season against Southern Methodist, a confident Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis said all the right things about how it is time for her to deliver.

"I have been in a funk for a little bit and it is time for me to get out of it," Mosqueda-Lewis said. "We are (approaching) the conference tournament and after that it is going to be (NCAA) tournament time."

Well, it was not idle chatter as UConn coach Geno Auriemma raved about how well she has been practicing in the last week.

"She has been really good the last week, really, really good," Auriemma said. "I can just tell by the way she carries herself right now how she is handling certain things that come up, all the things she is doing on the court instead of just shooting the ball. She may not be completely back but she is there.

"There was a period of time when K was playing like three players. She was playing like the best 3-point shooter in the country, she was playing like somebody who could get to the basket, she was playing good defense and she was posting up some smaller guards, rebounding the ball. She was doing a whole bunch of things so it was like was playing a whole bunch of different spots on the floor and then she went through a (stretch) when all she did was stand there and wait for the next 3-point shot which didn't help anybody including her so when the real Kaleena who was playing all those positions and doing all those things, obviously that changes our team dramatically. I think we have proven over the last two or three weeks we are a really good 3-point shooting team, we haven't shown it all the time this year but we are a really good 3-point shooting team and she hasn't even gotten started yet so I am anxious to see what we are like when Breanna Stewart, Bria Hartley, Kaleena Lewis all have their A games going."
