Connecticut Reaches 21st Straight Round of 16 in Women’s NCAAs

March 26 (Bloomberg) -- The University of Connecticut advanced to the round of 16 in the women’s national college basketball tournament for the 21st straight season with a 39-point win last night against Saint Joseph’s.

It was the 42nd consecutive victory for the defending national champion Huskies (36-0), who won 91-52. No other school has an active streak of more than seven consecutive trips to the round of 16.

Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis had 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists to become the 14th woman in National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament history with a triple-double and the first since Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins in 2012.

Regional top seed Connecticut next will face 12th-seeded Brigham Young University in the third round.

Another No. 1 seed, South Carolina, moved on to face fourth-seeded North Carolina. Also winning last night were Penn State, Maryland, Louisville, Texas A&M and LSU.

The women’s Final Four starts April 6 in Nashville, Tennessee, with the championship game on April 8.
