No. 1 UConn wins Big East tournament

By Colin McDonough, Senior Staff Writer

HARTFORD-An old mantra in sports is that it is very tough to beat the same team three times in one season, especially if the opponent is a conference rival. Try telling that to the Huskies.

The No. 1 UConn women’s basketball team beat No. 10 Notre Dame for the third time this season, and this win was in the Big East tournament championship game. The Huskies took down the Fighting Irish 73-64 at the XL Center in Hartford. UConn moved to 32-1 on the season and clinched their 17th conference tournament title and fourth straight.

Stefanie Dolson scored 24 points and although there were chants of “MVP” when Dolson was at the free throw line in the last minute, Maya Moore received tournament Most Outstanding Player honors. Moore scored 22 points and had five rebounds in the final.

Dolson, Moore and Bria Hartley took home hardware for All-Tournament team. The Huskies beat Georgetown, Rutgers and then Notre Dame on consecutive days to win the tournament.
