The University of Connecticut Women’s Basketball team always seem to turn a close game into a rout.

Monday night in Louisville against one of their long-time rivals, the Huskies turned an 11-0 run in the first half to a 32-22 lead. In the second half, they pushed it out to 22 and the rout was on in a 68-48 win over #3 Louisville.

UConn goes to 31-0 overall, 18-0 and the regular season champions of the American Athletic Conference.

Breanna Stewart led the way scoring 22 points and pulling down 14 rebounds. Helping out on the boards was Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis with 13.

The Cardinals who end the regular season at 28-3, 16-2 played before a new school-record crowd of 22,163, were led by Tia Gibbs with 16 points and Sara Hammond chipped in with 12.

Washington’s Husky Stadium undergoes renovations

 

Husky Stadium, where former NFL running back Corey Dillion once ran over tacklers and former head coach Don James won many games as the Huskies coach has been transformed into a construction zone.

With $50 million in private donations for renovation funding, the University of Washington has broke ground on improvement projects that will total $250 million dollars on the 91-year-old structure which was opened November 27, 1920.

When Geno Auriemma was born 57 years ago in Montella, Italy, he probably never thought he’d be a Women’s Basketball coaching legend someday, which he is.

The UConn coach will receive the John R. Wooden Award’s Legends of Coaching honor in April.

The Connecticut coach since 1985, Auriemma has coached the Huskies to four undefeated seasons, including 39-0 records that culminated into NCAA titles in 2009 and 2010.

Inducted into the National Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006, he has a record of 771-124.

Neither UConn or Butler lit up the scoreboard, shot the ball well or played a perfect game, but the team that played the best defense, won the game.

The Huskies won 53-41 in Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas, one of the worst national championship game’s of all-time.

Kemba Walker finished with 16 points for the Huskies (32-9), who won their 11th straight game since closing the regular season with a 9-9 Big East record that no one thought they’d even get past the first round of the tournament.

UConn head coach Jim Calhoun at 68-years-old, became the oldest coach to win the national championship and joined the likes of John Wooden, Adolph Rupp, Mike Krzyzewski and Bob Knight as only the fifth coach to win three NCAA titles.

Connecticut using their height and shot-blocking ability, intimidated Butler into missing several inside shots. They outscored the Bulldogs (28-10) 26-2 in the paint. Butler, from the mid-major conference, The Horizon League, were playing in their second straight title game, went a whopping 13 minutes, 26 seconds in the second half making just one field goal. Kind of mind-boggling for a good shooting, perimeter team.

Before their shooting went by the wayside, Butler was leading 25-19 and it became an insurmountable deficit of 41-28.
