The UCONN women’s basketball team will be making their 8th consecutive trip to the Elite Eight after pounding Maryland 76-50 in the East Region Sweet 16 matchup. They will face a familiar foe there in 2nd-seeded Kentucky, the two met in last year’s Elite Eight as well, with the Huskies coming away victorious, 80-65.
The game will be a de facto home game for UCONN in Bridgeport, Connecticut but Kentucky has it’s best team in recent memory coming in and these aren’t the Diana Taurasi or Maya Moore-led Huskies, meaning in short, they CAN be beat. The game will be on ESPN Monday at 7:30pm and Kentucky will attempt to make its first-ever trip to the Final Four after falling one game short in both 2010 and 2012.
