It was 2002. It was after the national semis in which UCONN destroyed the Vols 79-56. While many of us think of her as the arch nemesis, that rivalry advanced the sport by light years. We should also never forget her famous quote " I will do it for the good of the game" when deciding to play the biggest game ever in women's college basketball on MLK Jr Day in 1995. She could have easily declined.I can't remember the year, it was the one where Pat Summit went to the UCONN locker room and told the team how great they were...Wonderful memory of a great woman.
Yes, Pat had no clue on how to defend the black door. I guess she never saw Princeton play. The look on Pats face as she left the floor was one of pure frustration and anger. It was great.2000. Performed a backdoor clinic on the Vols. Showed that UConn was not a fluke and was here to stay on the national stage.
I think skylar graduated in 2013. Maybe u mean jewel Lloyd ??2015. It was a close, competitive game against a very good Notre Dame team. In a tour de force defensive performance, Moriah Jefferson completely shuts down Skylar Diggins in the first half. Then late in the game, with the Irish surging, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis explodes on offense with three buckets to ice the game for the Huskies. Pure Bliss.
Dave O'Brien had the call: "UConn does it again! For the tenth time, they are the champions!"
I think that was 2014.
But I thought the semi-final was just as sweet. The play that Geno drew up to let Taurisi drive one on one caused Stacey Dales to foul out was just awesome.Mine is 2003. 28 magnificent points from Diana plus she "Taurasiized" her teammates to play at another level. It helped too that we beat Tennessee 73-68.
