New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - Move over, Pat Summitt and Tennessee, you have company.
Connecticut put an end to Louisville's unlikely run in the NCAA Tournament Tuesday in a 93-60 drubbing at New Orleans Arena for the program's eighth national championship under head coach Geno Auriemma, matching the record held by Summitt and the Lady Vols.
Freshman Breanna Stewart finished with 23 points and nine rebounds, while Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis made five of UConn's 13 3-pointers en route to an 18- point effort.
The Huskies reached their eighth final by solving Notre Dame in the Final Four after losing to their Big East rival three times this season.
Another conference foe stood in the way Tuesday, and Connecticut (35-4) came away with a convincing triumph, denying Louisville its first title and a chance at winning both the men's and women's championships the same year.
Connecticut is still the only school that has accomplished that feat, doing so in 2004.
