UConn to face Notre Dame in women's hoops national championship
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Breanna Stewart scored 25 points and Morgan Tuck added 24 to lead UConn to an 81-58 win over Maryland on Sunday in the Final Four, leaving the Huskies one win away from a third straight national championship.
UConn will face Notre Dame for the title tonight in a rematch of last season's championship game.
The Huskies have won nine titles overall and a victory over the Irish would tie Geno Auriemma with vaunted UCLA men's coach John Wooden for the most all-time with 10. It also would be the second three-peat for UConn, which won three straight championships from 2002-04.
Tuck missed last season's championship run while she was recovering from microfracture surgery on her right knee that allowed her to only play in eight games.
The redshirt sophomore made her presence felt on the game's biggest stage.
