Championship game 101

UConn and Notre Dame are set for a championship rematch.

How do the Huskies and Irish match up, numbers-wise?

In contrast to last year’s bitterness, McGraw and Husky coach Geno Auriemma show mutual admiration for each other on ‘ship eve.

Underdog Notre Dame has a chance to be remembered, as they get another crack at dethroning UConn. They relish the chance.

How can the Irish defend Breanna Stewart?

Sidelined by injury in December, when Notre Dame lost to UConn, can Brianna Turner make the difference now? The team is “so much tougher” since that game, coach Muffet McGraw said.

Notre Dame’s Taya Reimer is a seasoned sophomore.

McGraw maintains that familiarity between the two teams will help in the title game.

As the Huskies have come down the stretch, Morgan Tuck has surged to the front, while Kia Nurse hasn’t let the big stage rattle her.

UConn is happy with the same old story.

The UConn standard is high.

Auriemma’s journey got them there.

Husky seniors Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Kiah Stokes have no regrets as they ready to play their last game for the blue.
