With 14 national championships between them, Stanford and UConn represent two of the most storied programs in all of women’s college basketball. Now, they’re set to face off in the final four, with a spot in the national championship on the line.
The No.1-seeded Cardinal (32-3) are reigning champions, having edged past a scrappy Arizona squad in last season’s title game. Under Tara Vanderveer’s helm, Stanford blends one of the most effective offenses in the nation (averaging 106.6 points per 100 possessions, per HerHoopStats) with an equally stingy defense that gives up a meager 81.5 points per 100 possessions, the 18th-best mark in the country (per HerHoopStats).
The Huskies are similarly loaded with talent, as per usual. Geno Auriemma’s squad ranks second in the nation in average margin of victory (a whopping 20.3 point differential, according to HerHoopStats). Guard Paige Bueckers is at the heart of all that is good for UConn, pouring in 23 points in the second half to push the Huskies past top-seeded NC State in the Elite Eight.
