The University of Connecticut Women’s Basketball team is going to the final four for the 13th straight year. But it wasn’t easy. The Huskies actually trailed by 10 in the second half, but a 19-0 run put them past Baylor University. And, despite a late scoring drought that let Baylor back into the game, UConn was able to hold on to win 69-67. Freshman Paige Bueckers stole a long inbounds pass as time expired. “Basketball’s a game of runs, so we just tried to stay confident,” she said after the game. “We just didn’t want to go home and we wanted to keep competing and make it to the Final Four. We just really strung together and I think that’s just the biggest thing for our team is just coming together when times are tough and sticking together.” Bueckers scored 28 points. UConn will meet the University of Arizona in the final four Friday.
