KML Honored Again

It's a little early in the basketball season to be reserving postseason awards for specific players. But in the case of Connecticut's Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, let's just say it seems pretty safe to say she's well on her way to being name Big East Freshman of the Year.

UConn's freshman forward has already won conference Freshman of the Week each of the first four weeks.

Here is the release from UConn announcing her latest weekly honor:

Freshman forward Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis has been honored as the BIG EAST Freshman of the Week as announced by the league on Monday. Mosqueda-Lewis, the 2011-12 Preseason BIG EAST Freshman of the Year, has earned the honor in each of the season's first four weeks.

Mosqueda-Lewis averaged 14.5 points, 3.5 rebounds per game en route to leading the No. 2 Huskies to a spotless 2-0 week, which included an 81-51 victory over No. 8 Texas A&M on Tuesday. Mosqueda-Lewis scored 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting against the Aggies while dishing-out two assists and blocking a pair of shots.

She followed that performance up with a 15-point, five-rebound effort in Connecticut's 70-37 victory at Seton Hall on Friday night.

The Anaheim Hills, Calif. native is leading the Huskies at 15.9 points per game and is second on the squad with .406 3-point field goal percentage. She has scored in double-figures seven times this season, including the last four games, and is the Huskies' fourth-leading rebounder.

Connecticut will break for final exams this week and will be back in action on Sunday, December 18 when the teams travels to Waco, Texas to take on No. 1 Baylor. Game time is set for 8:30 p.m. and the contest will be televised nationally on ESPN.
