UConn women win 8th national title with rout of Louisville; Huskies tied with Tennessee

UConn women win 8th national title with rout of Louisville; Huskies tied with Tennessee

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — His eighth national championship in hand, Geno Auriemma wanted to savor the moment and not talk about a dynasty just yet.

He had just tied Pat Summitt for the most titles in in NCAA history and wasn't ready to discuss a repeat. Yet it's hard to not see the Huskies winning more titles with freshman Breanna Stewart and sophomore Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis leading the way.

"We feel like all we can go is up from here," said Mosqueda-Lewis, who scored 18 points. "We have so many young people and so many people with experience in a national championship game. That's only going to make us better."

A scary thought for the rest of women's college basketball.

Stewart scored 18 of her 23 points in a dazzling first half and Connecticut (35-4) rolled to a 93-60 rout of Louisville on Tuesday night, the most lopsided victory in a title game. It put the Huskies back atop college basketball after missing the championship game the past two years.
