It was the second triple double for UConn this year, the third in program history, and just the 14th in the history of the women’s NCAA tournament.

"I’m fine now," said Mosqueda-Lewis, who missed 12 games this season with an elbow injury and later a bout with mononucleosis. "I struggled so much with my confidence. Now, I’m confident and I’m out there playing relaxed."

She led five players in double figures for the top-ranked Huskies (36-0), who won their 42nd straight game.

UConn will face 12th-seeded BYU in Lincoln, Nebraska on Saturday. The Cougars upset Nebraska in the second round, sparing the Huskies a date with the Cornhuskers on their home court.
