Connecticut Goes For Perfection Once AgainS

The UConn Lady Huskies go for broke tonight in the National Championship game. Win and they're immortal—lose and they're the biggest chumps of all time.

Not that there's much danger of the latter outcome happening. Connecticut is 38-0 and not a single one of those wins came by less than 10 points. (Most were by much, much more.) They already beat tonight's opponent, Louisville, twice this season by a combined margin of 67. Geno Auriemma can talk all day about how dangerous that makes them, but no one is buying it. A win tonight by Louisville would be one of the greatest upsets in sports history and I'm pretty sure he'll never let that happen.

By the way, if they do win by double digits, the Huskies would be the first team ever—men's or women's—to beat every opponent on their schedule by at least 10 points. That's some pretty good firepower for the "greatest of all time" arguments.
