  • UConn Mows Down Idaho, 105-37

    UConn Mows Down Idaho, 105-37
    The first sign that normalcy had returned to UConn was tied in a Windsor knot around Geno Auriemma's neck. It was a tie, the accessory strangely excluded from Auriemma's business attire during the Big East tournament. And Saturday's was a birthday tie;...

    Huskies Lose Another Battle To The Irish, 61-59

    UConn Women Beat Syracuse, Earn Rematch With Notre Dame In Big East Final
