STORRS, Conn. (AP) -- Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 23 points and third-ranked Connecticut got its 99th consecutive home victory, beating No. 14 Georgetown 80-38 on Saturday.

Bria Hartley added 18 points for UConn (23-2, 11-1 Big East), which held the Hoyas to 25-percent shooting and 24 points below their season average.

Sugar Rodgers and Rubylee Wright each had 10 for Georgetown (19-6, 8-4), which lost for the first time in five games.

The Hoyas led 12-11 midway through the first half before UConn took over, outscoring the Hoyas 51-14 over the next 20 minutes.

Connecticut hasn't lost at home since the finals of the 2007 Big East tournament, and has won 51 consecutive regular-season conference games at home.

The Huskies led 31-18 at halftime, and Kelly Faris' free throw gave the Huskies a 30 point lead with over 12 minutes left.
