Stanford and Texas A&M are battling it out on the hardwood in Indianapolis in the 2011 Women’s NCAA Final Four, but the main event comes later Sunday evening as Maya Moore and the UConn Huskies take-on Notre Dame. Moore, who continues to rack up accolades, has been head and shoulders above the rest of the NCAA, and is looking for one more championship in her final year with the Huskies. Her Huskies have the chance to advance to the 2011 NCAA Championship Game on Sunday night to face either Stanford or Texas A&M.
UConn faces the difficult task of beating a pesky Notre Dame team for the fourth time this season. Can the Huskies do it? Nate Parham took a look at the game and came up with a conclusion in his UConn vs. Notre Dame preview.
Yes, it’s difficult to beat a team four times in a season. And, yes, Notre Dame has challenged UConn as well as anyone this season. But there may never have been a team as driven as the Huskies or a player as driven or skilled as Maya Moore and it’s hard to simply disregard that, even if they’re playing with six players and up against the wall of having to beat an opponent for a fourth time.
To set the stage, here’s the game capsule for Sunday evening’s matchup.
Game time: Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m., but may run later as Stanford and Texas A&M are still in progress.
