Dawn Staley and South Carolina buttoned up on defense and won their second national championship, stifling UConn for a 64-49 victory that ended the Huskies’ undefeated streak in title games.
It’s been 24 years since North Carolina State has reached a Final Four and during that time UConn has been to 18 of them, including the last 13 straight. The top-seeded Wolfpack will try to end their drought and stop the Huskies’ streak when the two teams play on Monday night
Dawn Staley says she doesn’t feel any added pressure being the first Black head coach of the U.S. women’s basketball Olympic team. She has had to handle the pressure of representing her country with USA Basketball for more than two decades.
