No. 4 Duke Falls to No. 3 Connecticut 79-49

STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 21 points while Kelly Faris added 18 points and 12 rebounds to help No. 3 Connecticut beat No. 4 Duke 79-49 on Monday night, handing the Blue Devils their first loss of the season.

Duke was the last unbeaten team in men's or women's Division I basketball. The last time the Blue Devils came up to Connecticut two years ago they were also unbeaten and the Huskies had one loss. UConn won that game 87-51.

For 20 minutes the Blue Devils hung tough with UConn. That quickly changed in the second half. UConn (17-1) held a two-point lead at halftime and jumped right out on Duke in the second half. After trading baskets, the Huskies scored 20 of the next 25 points to take over.
