INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Top-seeded UConn capped off an undefeated 38-0 season with a convincing 82-51 win over fourth-seeded Syracuse to capture their fourth-straight NCAA Championship.
Projected top pick in the 2016 WNBA Draft Breanna Stewart scored 24 points, to go along with 10 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 blocks in her final collegiate game. Fellow senior Morgan Tuck added 19 points.
Cornelia Fondren came off the Orange bench to score 16 points and lead an inspirted 16-0 Syracuse run in the third quarter to cut what had been a 33-point deficit to 60-43. But that would be as close as the Orange would get, as they would ultimately fall to Connecticut for the 24th straight time, dating back to 1996.
