UCONN completed yet another perfect season by going 40-0 with their last win over the Fighting Irish Notre Dame who remained undefeated until the title game where they fell 58-79. This championship marks the 9th Championship under Women’s Basketball recording winning coach Geno  Auriemma who surpassed legend Pat Summit in Tennessee, the home of Summit.

Breanna Stewart, who was The Associated Press Player of the Year, scored 21 points to lead the Huskies (40-0) while Stefanie Dolson added 17 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists. Auriemma took out his senior center with a minute left and the game well in hand with the pair embracing in a long hug.

“We beat a great, great team,” Auriemma said. “Notre Dame is a great team. For them to have the season they had and lose their starting center and to do what they did, I can’t say enough about their players, coaching staff and it took everything we have. I knew if we played great we’d have a chance to win.”

The season was special for UCONN yet again due to both Women’s and Mens’ program winning the NCAA Championship once again 10 years later.
