Auriemma: Women’s Final Four A “Great Swan Song”

NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma says the women’s NCAA Final Four represents “a great swan song” for the “greatest basketball conference that’s ever existed.”

The Big East breaks up after this season. Before it does, the women’s Final Four will be played in New Orleans with three Big East teams: Auriemma’s UConn, along with Notre Dame and Louisville.

Auriemma says that’s how he’d want the Big East era to end, even if he’d rather not meet rival Notre Dame again in Sunday’s semifinal round.

California, which plays Louisville, is the only team left to spoil the Big East’s party in the Big Easy.

Cal coach Lindsay Gottlieb says it’s a “neat dynamic to be the outsiders,” adding her team takes an “additional sense of pride” in representing the West Coast.
