The top-ranked Huskies danced and cheered after they cruised to their 72nd straight win and 16th Big East tournament championship with a victory over West Virginia No. It was a much more festive atmosphere than the night before when they broke their own NCAA record for consecutive wins. The streak can be thrown at us and if we don't win the Big East championship it doesn't mean anything.
The next challenge -- if anything can truly be called a challenge for these Huskies -- is the NCAA tournament. With six more victories, UConn will Husky Hartford West Virginia top looking its second consecutive national title and seventh overall. Greene made her first seven shots and grabbed 12 rebounds. She provided the same offensive spark she's been giving the Huskies all season. The Huskies have won five of the last six conference tournament titles and enter the NCAAs unbeaten for the fifth time in school history.
UConn went on to win the national championship in, and In they lost to Tennessee in the regional final. In all, 11 teams have gone through the regular season unbeaten with five of them winning the national title. UConn stands six wins short of becoming the first team to go through consecutive seasons unbeaten. The Huskies won 70 straight games from Nov. The Huskies, who have won both the regular season and conference tournament title the last three years and 14 times in school history, held West Virginia to the lowest total in a Big East championship game.
Hayes finished with 15 points. Charles had 12 and Moore 10, but they combined to make just three of their first 22 shots. In that game the Mountaineers played tough for 25 minutes before succumbing to the Huskies.
The Huskies, who have won every game during its record streak by double figures, used a run in the first half to turn a one-point lead into a advantage with left. The Mountaineers wouldn't wilt, using their tenacious defense which allowed only West Virginia answered with a spurt of its own spanning the half to close to on Natalie Burton's free throw with left in the game. Liz Repella had eight points during the burst, including a 3-pointer from the top of the key that hit the front rim, bounced straight up and then in that made it UConn. The Huskies then went on one of their typical runs, scoring 27 of the next 29 points to end any hopes of the upset.
The Huskies held West Virginia without a point for nearly the final 11 minutes until a meaningless layup with 28 seconds left.
Greene had six points during the spurt, and also a nifty pass to Moore for a layup off an offensive rebound that made it with left. She's our safety net who doesn't get the credit she deserves, but it's great she's being recognized for all the things she does. Charles, who had missed seven of her first eight shots, hit three foul line jumpers and a layup during the burst. Caroline Doty was in her customary place in the starting lineup after suffering a scary head and neck injury during the Huskies' NCAA-record 71st straight victory Monday night.
The sophomore guard was inadvertently elbowed in the head by Notre Dame's Ashley Barlow with 50 seconds left in Monday night's game. Doty didn't show any outward s of the injury, but was ineffective in her 16 minutes, scoring just one point. I wouldn't want to play them in the NCAA tournament.
