Big East women’s basketball championship at the half

By Colin McDonough, Senior Staff Writer

HARTFORD- The No. 1 UConn women’s basketball team is in a dogfight in the Big East championship game against No. 10 Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish had as big a lead as seven points during the first half but the Huskies took the lead before halftime and are holding on 32-31 at the break. Maya Moore and Stefanie Dolson each have ten points for UConn.

Skylar Diggins only has 2 points and has been held without a field goal thus far for the Irish. Natalie Novosel and Natiel Achonwa lead Notre Dame with eight points each.

The main concern for the Huskies will be Bria Hartley’s three first half fouls. The lack of depth hasn’t affected UConn so far but could in tonight’s second half.

It should be an exciting second half here at the XL Center in Hartford. The Huskies will try to win their fourth straight, and 17th overall tournament championship, while the Irish will go for its first ever Big East championship.
