27 years to the day: UConn and Stanford meet again in the NCAA Women’s Final Four
The University of Connecticut and Stanford University — two legendary women’s college basketball teams — are meeting at the NCAA women’s Final Four Friday night in Minneapolis.
The matchup comes 27 years to the day when UConn beat Stanford in a previous semifinal game in 1995 in the same city and in the same arena,
the UConn Women’s Basketball account tweeted. After that game almost 30 years ago
the Huskies went on to grab their first-ever national championship.
The same coaches who led their teams then,
Stanford’s Tara VanDerveer and UCONN’s Geno Auriemma, are still at it.
VanDerveer, who on Dec. 15 became the sport’s winningest coach,
is leading her defending NCAA-champion Cardinals.
