Sox and Dawgs:
After knocking off the No. 1 team in the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday, we had to hope there would be no let down on Monday afternoon by the UConn Huskies women's basketball team.
It's pretty safe to say there was no let down.
Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis led six Huskies in double figures with 19 points as they went on to an easy 95-51 win over the Oregon Ducks at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene, OR.
The new No. 1 in the AP Poll (Coaches Poll comes out on Tuesday) Huskies improve to 12-0. The Ducks fall to 2-10.

Oregon picked up their eleventh win of the season, but may have lost a key contributor in the process. The Ducks (11-2) beat Nevada 56-43, in a game of runs that included long scoring droughts for both teams, but Arsalan Kazemi left the game in the first half with a head injury.
It’s been more than a month since the Oregon Ducks last took the field, but not much has changed since the Nov. 24 routing of the Oregon State Beavers.
