Storrs, CT (Sports Network) - All five of Connecticut's starters scored double-digits in points as the third-ranked Huskies handled Marquette with ease, 94-37, on Tuesday.

Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored a game-high 22 points of 8-for-10 shooting, including 5-of-6 from three-point range. Bria Hartley had 20 points, while Stefanie Dolson recorded 15 points and four blocks for the Huskies (21-1, 8-1 Big East), who have won nine straight.

Connecticut shot 54.7 percent from the field and was 15-of-23 from behind the arc.
