“If I can be part of a team the rest of my life, then I’m going to be a lucky guy and I've tried to do that all of my life -- be part of a team.”

Championship Timeline
The First Win And Birth of a Dynasty It has been called the team that made women’s basketball. Led by Rebecca Lobo and fellow all-tournament team members Jen Rizzotti, Jamelle Elliott, and Kara Wolters, the Connecticut women bested Tennessee 70-64 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, capping off a perfect 35-0 season.
An 11th Title Sets a Coaching Record The UConn women wrapped up a sixth undefeated season by overwhelming Syracuse 82-51 for a fourth consecutive NCAA title—a Division I women's college basketball record. That makes 11 overall for Geno Auriemma, surpassing the 10-title record set by legendary UCLA coach John Wooden.
The Rematch and A 2nd Title The highly anticipated championship rematch between the Lady Huskies and the Lady Vols resulted in a 71-52 UConn victory for their second NCAA championship. Shea Ralph, with 15 points, was named the Most Outstanding Player of the tournament.
A 3rd NCAA Title and an Undefeated Season With a dream team including Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird, the Lady Huskies dispatched the Lady Vols in the semifinals and went on to notch a third championship with an 82-70 victory over the Oklahoma Sooners. With that win, UConn became the first team in NCAA history with two undefeated seasons.
A 4th NCAA Title and Back to Back Wins On April 8, the UConn Women bested Tennessee 73-68 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta to win a second straight national championship. UConn’s Diana Taurasi, who made 20 three-pointers in the tournament, was named Most Outstanding Player.
A Three-Peat for the Huskies The Lady Huskies became the second women’s college basketball team in history to win three straight titles with a 70-61 win over archrival Tennessee at New Orleans Arena. UConn’s Diana Taurasi was named Most Outstanding Player for the second consecutive year.
Cutting the Nets with a 6th Championship With a team largely intact from the previous season—including All-Americans Maya Moore, Renee Montgomery and Tina Charles—the Lady Huskies posted their sixth NCAA championship, beating Louisville and capping off their third undefeated season.
It's the Alamo for A 7th NCAA Title UConn successfully defended their title in San Antonio, Texas, beating Stanford 53-46. The win capped the team’s second consecutive undefeated season—UConn’s fourth overall and the first back-to-back undefeated seasons in NCAA history.
An 8th Title and A Freshman MOP With a 93-60 win over Louisville Cardinals at New Orleans Arena, the most points the UConn women ever put up in a final, the Huskies tied the record set by Pat Summit’s Tennessee Vols for the most NCAA women’s basketball titles. Freshman Breanna Stewart was named the Most Outstanding Player—the first freshman to win the honor since 1987.
2 Unbeatens Collide And UConn Gets 9 Unstoppable throughout the season behind sophomore Breanna Stewart, the UConn women beat every opponent by double digits and met undefeated Notre Dame in the final in Nashville—the first time two undefeated teams met in the championship game. UConn beat Notre Dame 79-58.
A Coaching Record is Matched at 10 After a season-opening loss to Stanford, the Huskies tore through the rest of the season undefeated. Again, UConn met Notre Dame in the championship game. UConn won again, 63-53, for its second title three-peat and the 10th championship overall, tying Geno with the record set by legendary UCLA coach John Wooden.
Undefeated Again with 11 Championships With the victory, UConn ties the UCLA Bruins men's team for the most college basketball championships and becomes the first Division I women's team to win four straight national championships.
