STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis had the third triple-double in UConn history as the Huskies moved into their 21st straight NCAA regional semifinal with a 91-52 rout of Saint Joseph’s on Tuesday night.

Mosqueda-Lewis had 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, to lead five players in double figures for the top-ranked Huskies (36-0), who won their 42nd straight game.

MARYLAND 69,
 TEXAS 64

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Alyssa Thomas scored all 16 of her points in the second half, and Maryland squeezed past cold-shooting Texas to reach the Sweet 16.

The fourth-seeded Terrapins (26-6) next face Tennessee, the No. 1 seed in the Louisville Regional. Maryland is 23-8 in the tournament under coach Brenda Frese and has reached the round of 16 in six of her 12 seasons at the helm.

PENN STATE 83,
 FLORIDA 61

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Maggie Lucas and Dara Taylor each scored 22 points to send Penn State into the Sweet 16 with a win over Florida.

The third-seeded Lady Lions (24-7) will play at No. 2 Stanford (30-3) on Sunday.

Lucas, the two-time Big Ten player of the year, surpassed the 2,500 career-point milestone and led the Lady Lions to the NCAA tournament regional semifinal for the second time in three seasons.

NORTH CAROLINA 62, MICHIGAN STATE 53

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Freshman Diamond DeShields had 24 points and a season-high 12 rebounds to help North Carolina beat Michigan State.

Fellow rookie Allisha Gray added 10 points for the fourth-seeded Tar Heels (26-9), who led by nine at halftime then dominated the opening minutes of the second half to turn the game into a rout.

North Carolina ran off 14 straight points to blow the game open, with DeShields scoring twice during that flurry to build a 57-31 lead with 11½ minutes left that allowed the Tar Heels to coast to the Stanford Regional’s round of 16.

The Tar Heels pressured the fifth-seeded Spartans (23-10) and turned the game into the up-and-down pace they wanted. They finished with a 17-4 edge in fast-break points and 15 points off turnovers in a huge improvement from their first-round struggles against UT Martin.
