NASHVILLE – The defending national champion Connecticut Huskies remained unbeaten (39-0) with a 75-56 win over Stanford in a national semifinal game at Bridgestone Arena, Sunday. The Huskies’ Breanna Stewart paced five double-figure scorers with 18 points as UConn moved into a highly anticipated national championship bout with former conference rival and also unbeaten Notre Dame (37-0).
Tuesday’s contest marks the first time in tournament history that two unbeaten teams will vie for the national title.
Stanford led by as many as 6 early in the contest, but Connecticut emerged with a 28-24 lead at intermission. The Huskies used a 16-3 run to begin the second half to take a commanding 44-27 advantage.
Dave Ryan, Debbie Antonelli and Krista Blunk called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
