The University of Connecticut Huskies have taken their fifth NCAA championship title after a commanding performance against San Diego State University in the Final Four.
In a game that was dominated by the Huskies from start to finish, UConn outscored San Diego State by a commanding margin of 82-56. UConn's sharp shooting performance was led by their star player, Paige Bueckers, who scored a total of 25 points, including 4 three-pointers. The Huskies shot 57% from the field, while San Diego State struggled to keep up, shooting just 37%.
UConn's defense was also key in their victory, as they held San Diego State to just 28 points in the second half. The Huskies also managed to shut down San Diego State's leading scorer, Jordan Schakel, who had just 4 points.
UConn's title win marks the program's fifth national championship and is the first since they won the title in 2014. It is also the first time that UConn has won a national championship under head coach Geno Auriemma, who has been at the helm for the past 34 years.
The Huskies now look ahead to the upcoming season with confidence and optimism, as they look to defend their title. With Paige Bueckers returning as the team's star player, and a deep roster of talented players, UConn looks to be a force to be reckoned with in the NCAA tournament.
