Stanford slows UConn, but fails to make most of it

By  | 

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The defensive game plan was solid, the
execution perfect. Stanford kept Maya Moore, Tina Charles and the
entire Connecticut team from scoring for a strecth of 10 minutes,
37 seconds.

And it still wasn't enough.

Not with the Cardinal scoring a measly 12 points during UConn's

Stanford indeed went ahead during the Huskies' scoreless run,
but simply didn't get far enough ahead. Everyone knew Connecticut
eventually would get going and, sure enough, the breakout scoring
binge proved to be too much for the Cardinal, carrying the Huskies
to a 53-47 victory - their 78th straight and a second straight
national title.
