STORRS, Conn. -- Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 21 points while Kelly Faris added 18 points and 12 rebounds to help No. 3 Connecticut beat No. 4 Duke 79-49 on Monday night, handing the Blue Devils their first loss of the season.

Duke was the last unbeaten team in men's or women's Division I basketball. The last time the Blue Devils came up to Connecticut two years ago they were also unbeaten and the Huskies had one loss. UConn won that game 87-51.

For 20 minutes the Blue Devils hung tough with UConn. That quickly changed in the second half. UConn (17-1) held a two-point lead at halftime and jumped right out on Duke in the second half. After trading baskets, the Huskies scored 20 of the next 25 points.

Alexis Jones had 14 points for the Blue Devils (16-1).

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Maggie Lucas scored 19 points and Alex Bentley added 16 for Penn State, which took over sole possession of first place in the Big Ten.

The Lady Lions (15-2, 5-0 Big Ten) and Wolverines (15-3, 4-1) were the only teams in the league without a conference loss. Michigan kept it close before Penn State went on a late 12-0 run.

Rachel Sheffer had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Wolverines, who went 6 of 26 from 3-point range.

The loss snapped Michigan's 10-game winning streak, which equaled a school record. The Lady Lions have won nine straight.

Penn State led 47-46 before holding Michigan scoreless for over 6 minutes.
