TAMPA, Fla. (AP)   Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored a career-high 32 points and Stefanie Dolson added 25 as No. 3 Connecticut tuned up for a Big East rematch with second-ranked Notre Dame by racing past South Florida 85-51 on Saturday.

Mosqueda-Lewis paced the Huskies (27-2, 14-1) by making 11 of 23 shots, including six 3-pointers. Dolson matched her career-best for points by going 8 for 11 from the field, sinking all nine of her free throws and grabbing 10 rebounds.

Next up for UConn is Monday night’s nationally televised showdown for a possible share of the conference regular-season title at Notre Dame, which defeated the Huskies 73-72 on the road two months ago.

Inga Orekhova led cold-shooting South Florida (19-9, 8-7) with 13 points. Andrea Smith and Alisia Jenkins each scored 10.
