Connecticut is perhaps the top defensive team in the nation, a fact that often goes overlooked with the Huskies' bevy of productive offensive players. But the defense carried the day against Stanford.
Stanford is in its sixth Final Four in seven seasons -- but hasn't won a title in 22 years. Chiney Ogwumike and the Cardinal hope to make new history at the Final Four, even as a huge underdog against UConn.
The game was a blowout, a 61-35 shellacking of No. 1 Stanford, but UConn coach Geno Auriemma and Cardinal coach Tara VanDerveer learned plenty about their teams.
Tara VanDerveer and Geno Auriemma want to showcase offenses in Stanford-Connecticut showdown.
For the third time in four years, Stanford and Connecticut clash in a battle of the top two ranked teams in the country.
The secret of success for this year's Final Four teams is blending personalities.
