Sports Madness: UCONN win in March Madness

Darius Livingston, Sports Editor

Yesterday the University of Connecticut women’s basketball team has done was no other male or female basketball organization has with the 82-51 win against Syracuse — win four consecutive national titles.

Under the leadership of seniors Breanna Stewart, Moriah Jefferson and Morgan Tuck, the Huskies were able to cap off a perfect season with a record of 38-0, also extending their winning streak to 75.

Stewart, Jefferson, and Tuck set another record last night becoming the only players to win four titles in NCAA basketball history.

UCONN women’s basketball head coach Geno Auriemma also set a record of his own. Yesterday’s win granted him his 11th overall championship, the most championship for a single coach, surpassing former UCLA coach John Wooden.

One would think over a span of 75 games at least one team would give UCONN a run for their money. However this is not the case. Every single win during the streak has been decided by double digits. In the 2015-2016 season alone their average margin of victory ranges around 40 points!

UCONN’s dominance has become so covenant critics contemplate if watching women’s basketball will become futile.

UCONN will eventually lose, someday, hopefully, but until then coach Auriemma has every intention to prevent it.
