The University of Connecticut Huskies made college basketball history on Monday night, winning their fourth national championship with a dominant 76-59 victory over San Diego State in Houston.
The Huskies put on a show, dominating from start to finish. UConn trailed early, but then went on a 23-7 run to take control of the game. Led by star guard Paige Bueckers, the Huskies outscored San Diego State by 17 points in the second half.
The Huskies were led by Bueckers, who had 24 points and 8 assists. She was supported by her teammates, with junior Aubrey Griffin adding 16 points and 10 rebounds.
The win gives UConn its fourth national championship in the last six years. It is a testament to the success and stability of the program, which is led by legendary coach Geno Auriemma.
The win was especially sweet for the Huskies, who had to overcome a lot of adversity to get here. They were without the services of leading scorer Christyn Williams, who was sidelined with an ankle injury. But, the Huskies never wavered, and came together as a team to win the championship.
The Huskies also made history, becoming the first team to win a national championship in the first season of a new conference. After leaving the Big East for the Big 12 in 2020, the Huskies proved that they could still compete and win at the highest level.
The Huskies are now the first team to win a national championship four times in the last six years, cementing their legacy as one of the greatest college basketball programs of all time. They have also set a new standard of excellence for future generations of Huskies.
