UConn Women Achieve Perfection

|The Hartford Courant

ST. LOUIS - The No. 1 UConn women, driven by three players as gifted as any they've ever had, won it all Tuesday.

Challenged briefly in the first half, the Huskies rolled as usual, defeating Louisville 76-54 at the Scottrade Center to win their sixth national championship in 15 seasons.

Coach Geno Auriemma's team (39-0) completed its third undefeated season, joining the 1995 and 2002 champs as program icons.

At the forefront of the attack was junior center Tina Charles, so maligned in the past for her postseason performances. On Tuesday, Charles' performance was record-setting..........


NCAA Championship Game: UConn vs. Louisville


Perfect Ending! UConn Women Win Sixth Title

From St. Louis to Storrs, UConn women's basketball fans are celebrating the perfect ending to a perfect 39-0 season.

The UConn women captured their sixth national championship in St. Louis Tuesday night against Big East rival Louisville.

Tina Charles had 25 points and grabbed 19 rebounds Tuesday night as UConn routed Louisville 76-54.

It wasn't just that Connecticut claimed another title. It was how they did it.

UConn won every one of its 39 games by double digits, an unprecedented run in college basketball.

Charles was the star of the last big win. She commanded both ends of the floor and Louisville, which lost badly to UConn for the third time this season, had no one who could stop her.

Coach Geno Auriemma had said before the tournament that his junior center would be the key to UConn winning the title. A year after he benched her in the NCAAs for inconsistent play, Charles delivered.

"I'm really happy for her," Auriemma said.

"I told Tina before the game, I said 'Sunday night you played against an All-American center and you played defense and you worked as hard as the best center in America and now you have to prove it tonight' and she did."............
