HARTFORD, Conn. — Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 25 points and Bria Hartley added 19 to help No. 2 Connecticut beat third-ranked Stanford 68-58 in a women’s basketball game on Monday night.

The pair carried the Huskies (3-0) for the first 25 minutes as the rest of UConn couldn’t make a shot.

Trailing by six at the half, Stanford (3-1) went on a 10-2 run to start the second half led by Nnemkadi Ogwumike. Her layup gave Stanford a 36-34 lead. UConn answered as Stefanie Dolson hit a layup – ending an 0-for-24 drought by the other Huskies to start the game – that began a 15-6 burst.

After Dolson’s jumper, Hayes, who missed her first 10 shots, made a layup and a 3-pointer. Hartley’s layup capped the run and made it 51-42 with 9:19 left. Stanford could only get within six the rest of the game.
