UConn Women Huskies Defeat Syracuse In Fourth Straight National Title

UConn Women Huskies Defeat Syracuse In Fourth Straight National Title

Breanna Stewart, Moriah Jefferson and Morgan Tuck became the only players in NCAA college basketball history, men or women, to win four titles. The championship also marked the 11th overall for UConn coach Geno Auriemma.

The Women Huskies capped their season at 38-0, the sixth undefeated season in program history, and extended its winning streak to 75 games.

Stewart was certainly the player of the game. The most decorated player in UConn history–with a fourth Final Four Most Outstanding Player award under her belt– finished her career with 24 points (she has scored at least 20 in three of her four championship game appearances), 10 rebounds, 6 assists and two blocks.

Tuck finished with 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists, while Jefferson had 13 points, five assists and just one turnover.

Stewart, Tuck and Jefferson ended their time playing together with a 115-5 record. The trio went 116-1 in the past three seasons.

Napeesha Collier scored a buzzer-beating layup to seal the win for the Huskies.
