    Senior Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 21 points in her final home game to lead top-ranked UConn to an 87-24 rout of Memphis as the Huskies secured their second straight regular-season championship in the American Athletic Conference for Senior Day.

    Breanna Stewart added 20 points and eight rebounds for the Huskies (28-1, 17-0 American) who have not lost a conference game since the inception of the AAC at the start of last season.

    Ariel Hearn had seven points on 3-of-20 shooting to lead Memphis (13-15, 7-10 American), which made just 11 of its 57 shots from the field.

    Mosqueda-Lewis hit eight of her 11 shots and had five 3-pointers. Her second, part of UConn's opening 10-2 run, pushed her past the 2,000-point plateau in her career.

    The Huskies used a 31-0 first-half run, sparked by senior Kiah Stokes 300th career blocked shot, to put the game away.
