NCAA Women’s Tournament Recap

UConn routes Louisville in national championship game

On Tuesday night, the University of Connecticut Huskies demolished the Louisville Cardinals for the women's basketball NCAA championship. With the Louisville men's coach, Rick Pitino, in the stands, fresh off his team's victory in the men's game the previous night, and women's coach Jeff Walz in his trademark tie-less dress shirt, momentum seemed to be on the side of the Cardinals.

Louisville had already knocked off heavy favorite Baylor, as well as UConn's most historic rival Tennessee. However, there was no stopping coach Geno Auriemma and the Connecticut Huskies. The Huskies thoroughly dominated the game and rolled to their eighth overall championship. Coach Auriemma is now tied with former Tennessee coach Pat Summitt for the most championships in all of women's college basketball. The Huskies are just one the heels of legendary UCLA coach John Wooden, who has ten championships.

Louisville was trying to replicate a special circumstance that has only happened once, in 2004, when a university won both the men's and the women's championships. The team that did it in 2004? The UConn Huskies.

These Huskies were simply too good, too fast and too sharp-shooting for the Cardinals. The Huskies broke a 23-year-old record in netting 13 three pointers and shooting 53% overall. The Huskies led at halftime 48-29 and began the second half on a 12-7 run, it seemed like things were all but wrapped up.

Breanna Stewart was named Most Outstanding Player and Kelly Faris got to win a national championship in her senior season after making Final Fours all of her years in Storrs.
