Congratulations to the University of Connecticut’s Women’s basketball program for winning their 4th national title in a row beating Syracuse 82-51. Leaving no doubt who was the better team.
Connecticut’s three senior stars – Breanna Stewart, Moriah Jefferson and Morgan Tuck – became the first players to win national championships in all four of their collegiate seasons when the Huskies crushed Syracuse 82-51 on Tuesday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
“To do something that no one else has ever done with them, I mean, I keep saying, ‘Unbelievable’ as a word to describe it. But I don’t know what other word you could use,” Stewart said. “The fact that we made history together, that’s going to create a connection that will never be broken.”
No women’s team ever had won more than three straight national titles, and the only men’s team to do so, UCLA from 1967 to 1973, did so before freshmen were eligible. Geno Auriemma has passed John Wooden with 11 National Titles. UConn by the way has won 75 in a row. and in the last 117 games they are 116-1… Scary! Wow!
