UConn Women’s Basketball
BYU has come up with two of the biggest upsets in the NCAA women’s tournament to get to the school’s first Sweet 16 since 2002.
Connecticut’s opponents spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to slow the Huskies’ offense. A bigger challenge may be finding a way to score on the nation’s top-ranked women’s team.
Breanna Stewart led a balanced offense with 19 points and 10 rebounds as defending champion UConn routed Prairie View A&M 87-44 in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Sunday.
Breanna Stewart expects UConn to win its ninth national title next month. She doesn’t believe that’s being cocky, it’s knowing the Huskies can live up to expectations.
UConn is the top seed in the NCAA women’s basketball tournament.
The Huskies received all 36 first-place votes Monday in The Associated Press Top 25 final poll of the season.
Breanna Stewart and Bria Hartley each scored 20 points to help No. 1 UConn remain unbeaten with a 72-35 victory over No. 24 Rutgers on Saturday.
The UConn women’s basketball team cruised to a 92-41 win over Houston Saturday afternoon in coach Geno Auriemma’s 1,000th game at the school.
Connecticut remains No. 1 in The Associated Press poll Monday after two more wins.
Breanna Stewart had 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead top-ranked UConn to an 81-64 victory over No. 4 Louisville on Sunday in a rematch of last season’s national championship game.
