NEW ORLEANS - After all the years and countless milestones, it's hardly possible for Connecticut to bounce a pass anymore without making history. Geno Auriemma, the master craftsman, and his series of master classes, have become as synonymous to women's basketball as Howard Johnson was to the ice-cream cone. Things just seemed vastly different in the world once they came along. On Tuesday, after being re-routed at times by injuries and, well, you know, Notre Dame, the Huskies arrived at the place they've come to know so well.

Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis of Santa Ana Mater Dei was the top-rated high school girls' basketball player on the nation's top-ranked team. And she has already signed on to play for college powerhouse Connecticut next season. So picking a favorite memory from her senior year is difficult. She recalls a time in Atlanta, when she was approached at the airport by a man who asked for her autograph. "It makes you feel special," said the 6-foot guard who was chosen by The Times as the girls' player of the year in Southern California.

The highly anticipated rematch between regional powers had a new cast of characters, but on the biggest stage it was Santa Ana Mater Dei's stars who shined the brightest. Senior guard Nirra Fields showed why she is headed for UCLA next season, scoring 24 points and dishing out six assists to lead the Monarchs to their second straight Division I state championship and third consecutive state title with a 57-40 victory over Berkeley on Saturday night at Power Balance Pavilion. "I never let it enter my mind that we had them," said Fields, a stepdaughter of Lakers Coach Mike Brown and a transfer from Canada who was at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia last year.

Mater Dei High Coach Kevin Kiernan has one concern heading into the girls' basketball season. Even though he returns almost every player from a team that last season won Southern Section 2A and state championships and was ranked best in the nation, he does have one unusual disadvantage. His players didn't play together much as a team over the summer. That's because three of his starters made the United States under-17 team that won a gold medal in France in July. OK, so maybe that situation doesn't inspire loads of sympathy.

Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis scored 16 points and Jessica Duarte added 12 as Santa Ana Mater Dei won its third consecutive Southern Section championship Friday night with a 63-54 victory over Brea Olinda in the girls' Division 1AA final at the Anaheim Convention Center. The third-seeded Monarchs (29-1) led by as many 15 points early in the second half. "In this day and age, as much basketball as these girls play, it's hard to peak at the right time, but we're playing our best basketball right now," Mater Dei Coach Kevin Kiernan said.

Five teams to watch (in no particular order): 1. Santa Ana Mater Dei. The defending state Division I champion may have lost Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis to Connecticut, but the Monarchs are still expected to be one of the best teams in the nation. They return USC-bound senior Jordan Adams, a versatile 6-foot-1 point guard, and have added UCLA-bound senior guard Nirra Fields to their roster, though she is currently ineligible pending a hardship waiver from the Southern Section. 2. Los Angeles Windward.

Reporting from Sacramento Most coaches would hesitate to rely on a freshman with the game on the line, but not Los Angeles Windward's Steve Smith. Especially when that freshman is as talented and poised as Jordin Canada. The Wildcats' point guard hit a three-pointer from the top of the key with 47 seconds left to break a 47-47 tie and Windward went on to defeat Albany St. Mary's, 51-47, in the girls' Division IV final Saturday morning at Power Balance Pavilion. It was the first state title for the Windward girls, and there may be more titles on the horizon for a team with four sophomores and three freshmen.

Southern California regional finals, Saturday BOYS At Galen Center Division I: Santa Ana Mater Dei (30-3) vs. Corona Centennial (30-4), 8 p.m. ? These teams met in a Southern Section 1AA semifinal and Centennial rallied for a 60-58 victory. Mater Dei controlled the pace in the first half, Centennial in the second half. If the Huskies' defense can force turnovers and they hit some outside shots at the other end, Mater Dei could be in trouble. But the Monarchs will be better prepared this time, and Katin Reinhardt, a USC commit, gets to play at his future home arena.
