If they can pull it off, Breanna Stewart would accomplish her goal of winning four championships at UConn — and coach Geno Auriemma would pass the legendary John Wooden with 11 NCAA titles.
“I’ll let the people who write the history decide where I fit in,” Geno Auriemma said after leading UConn’s women to a third straight championship Tuesday night.
Breanna Stewart had 31 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists to help UConn rout Texas 105-54 Saturday in the Sweet 16, earning coach Geno Auriemma his 100th NCAA Tournament win.
About 10,000 fans lined Hartford’s Bushnell Park on a cold and windy Sunday afternoon to cheer the national champion UConn women.
Connecticut beat Louisville comfortably back in January and didn’t even have star Breanna Stewart on the floor at the time. That doesn’t mean the Huskies are going to be brimming with confidence about their chances of winning an eighth NCAA national title on Tuesday night against the Cardinals.
