With Breanna Stewart back for two more seasons, Geno Auriemma and UConn are in position to win a few more titles. None may be sweeter than the record ninth championship the Huskies won Tuesday night in unprecedented fashion.
Tuesday looks to be a busy day at DFW International Airport, as fans who were in town for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game start heading back home.
Last night, the Huskies cut down the nets in Dallas after beating Kentucky 60-54 to win the school’s fourth national championship. Consider that Kentucky needed four straight late escapes to reach the final and you get a sense for what kind of Tournament this was.
Turn off the lights. The game is over. Connecticut won. But organizers across North Texas hope to do it again and again, already looking ahead to the next big event.
Yeah, UConn won the National Championship game over Kentucky’s incredible freshmen 60-54. It was a thrilling game, but the fans of basketball were the real winners.
Shabazz Napier scored 22 points and Connecticut won its second NCAA title in four years, beating all those Kentucky freshmen 60-54 in the championship game on Monday night.
Kentucky was down by 15 points. They had only scored half as many points that UConn had in the first half. It appeared to be game over for the Wildcats. But, not so fast.
After years of planning, North Texas will host the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game on Monday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
The Fab Five came onto the national basketball landscape like a thunder dunk. You had to notice the five baggy-shorts-wearing freshmen starters from Michigan who made their way to the national championship game.
Connecticut’s latest national championship game will be very different from the previous eight the Huskies have played — and won.
Contrast. This year’s NCAA Final Four is full of it. Kentucky has relied on freshmen. Florida followed its seniors. The Badgers tick away the clock. The Wildcats barge past opponents.
As poorly as his team shot in the first half, Texas A&M coach Gary Blair was feeling pretty good about the Aggies’ chances against UConn with 15 minutes to play.
