The University of Connecticut Huskies have done it again, winning their fifth national championship after dominating the San Diego State Aztecs 76-59 in the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship game Tuesday night.
The Huskies, led by star guard Paige Bueckers' 25 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists, were simply too much for the Aztecs to handle. Bueckers was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.
The Huskies got off to a hot start, leading by as many as nine points in the first quarter, and never looked back. San Diego State put up a good fight, cutting the lead to four points in the second quarter, but UConn responded with a 12-0 run to extend their lead back to 14. UConn carried that momentum into the second half, and San Diego State was never able to get within single digits of the lead.
It was an impressive performance by the Huskies, who shot 50 percent from the field and held the Aztecs to just 36 percent shooting. UConn also out-rebounded San Diego State 44-31.
The win marks the Huskies' fifth national championship and the first since 2016, when they won their fourth title. UConn has now won 11 of the last 18 national championships, an incredible amount of success for a program.
The Huskies will now look to build on this success as they look to capture their sixth national championship next season. With Bueckers leading the way, it's hard to imagine anyone stopping them.
