Congrats to the UConn women's basketball team, capping a second consecutive perfect season to win the NCAA National Championship. That brings their amazing unbeaten streak to 78 in a row.

Which isn't to say they didn't make it exciting! Following a dismal first half the Huskies trailed by 8 points, but both teams obviously exhibited nerves and shot well below their season average. Which was lucky for UConn.

After the 20-12 score at the intermission, the Huskies offense woke up and scored regularly on the Stanford women, ending in a 53-47 victory. It wasn't the most elegant game of the year, but it was definitely their biggest!

Way to go, ladies!

The UConn women’s basketball team has been on an unbelievable run for two years! The way they played in the first half versus Stanford, however, made me believe that their winning streak would come to an end. I can’t wait until next season to see just how much longer their streak will last.

Man -

For about 20 minutes, I could swear they were doing a New England Patriots on us (a Pats fan, I never really recovered from THAT "perfect season"... )

But no - the promise was fulfilled!
