“I just remember watching the Final Four game last year and I just remember being hurt for my future teammates,” Williams said. “So for me to have the opportunity to play in a game like that, I was just really excited. That’s why I came to UConn – to play in those games.”
“We had made a decision, we weren't going to (double team),” Geno Auriemma said. “We said we are not going to double. We are going to let Asia (Durr) get what she gets and just make her work as hard as possible to get those (shots). We just decided we cannot live with 11 made 3s like we did last time.”
ALBANY – The past two national champions, UConn and South Carolina, faced off Monday night for a chance to go to the Final Four. Both women’s basketball programs have been dominant over the past several years, but this night belonged to UConn, as the Huskies annihilated the Gamecocks in a 94-65 victory.
A crowd of over 200 milled around the Jonathan statue outside Gampel Pavilion on Wednesday morning. All eyes were on the UConn field hockey team as they took in their last moments on campus before departing for the Final Four in Louisville, Kentucky.
It was a send-off worthy of a team that has yet to lose this season and is about to fight for the program’s fifth national championship title this weekend.
