Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis

If this continues, the Big East Conference can already engrave the Big East Freshman of the Year award.

For the third straight week, UConn Huskies women’s basketball freshman Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis has been named as the Big East Freshman of the Week.

KML, who leads the Huskies in scoring at 16.3 points, scored 21 points, including five three-pointers, in the Huskies win over Towson last week. It was the fourth time this season that KML has gone over the 20 point plateau.

Bria Hartley was also honored by the Big East as she was named to the Weekly Honor Roll for her performance in the win over Towson.

In that game, she had a game-high 24 points to go along with five assists and four steals.

KML, Hartley and the rest of the Huskies are back in action on Tuesday night when they’ll host the defending champion Texas A&M Aggies in the Jimmy V Classic at the XL Center in Hartford, CT. Tip is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. and the game will be broadcast nationally on espn2.
