Storrs — Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 22 points and top-seeded Connecticut advanced to the regional semifinals of the women’s NCAA tournament for the 20th consecutive season with a 77-44 win over Vanderbilt on Monday night.
Freshman Breanna Stewart added 14 points and Stefanie Dolson had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Huskies (31-4), who are seeking their sixth straight trip to the Final Four and eighth national championship.
Tiffany Clarke had 16 points for Vanderbilt, which finished 21-12 but lost three of its last six games.
The Huskies led by 13 at halftime and opened the second half on a 17-0 run to put the game out of reach. UConn held Vanderbilt without a field goal for more than 7 minutes after intermission, and the Commodores missed 11 consecutive shots.
UConn will play fourth-seeded Maryland, a 74-49 winner over Michigan State, in the round of 16 on Saturday in Bridgeport.
