UConn's Championship Dynasty Continues

UConn's Championship Dynasty Continues

The Lady Huskies are unstoppable.

Published April 6th

Nothing can stop them, they're all the way up.

Make it four consecutive championships and 11 titles overall for the UConn Huskies.

The women Huskies ran Syracuse off the floor via an 82-51 victory in the NCAA National Championship game Tuesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

With the victory, forward Breanna Stewart closed out her legendary collegiate career, having been part of 151 Huskies victories and only five losses, while being named 2016 Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four four years in a row. What dominance!

"You come to Connecticut to win championships," Stewart, who recorded 24 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and three blocks Tuesday night, told ESPN. "That's our goal every single year."

Stewart will be a lock to be the No. 1 player selected in the WNBA Draft next Thursday (April 14).

UConn's 11th National title also gives Huskies coach Geno Auriemma more championship's than late UCLA men's coach John Wooden, who had 10.

"I remember taking a step back and saying, 'This is an unbelievable scene,'" Auriemma told ESPN, about the impact of UConn's dynasty actually hitting him on Monday night. "What those 11 national championships mean to me is how many great people I've been around."

Salute!
