Summary: Win #800 might not have been the hardest of any of the 800, but according to Geno it might have been the sweetest or most satisfying. This group of Huskies has tried all season long to find themselves and their team's identity and there in the 2nd half of one of the biggest game of their short career's...the found IT!!! Led by the UConn All-American candidate duo of So. G Bria Hartley (18p/7r/2a/4s) and Fr. W Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (19p/8r/1s), the Huskies punched, got punched, and finally counterpunched back a very physical and experienced Notre Dame squad into a 63-54 victory as well as a 5th-consecutive and 18th overall Big East Championship. UConn has now gone 19 straight seasons with at least a Big East Regular Season or Tournament Championship title. Sr. G Tiffany Hayes chipped in a very hard earned 14pts., 8rebs. (including 4 offensive), 1ast., and 1stl. in 37mins. while Jr. G Kelly Faris scored the 8 biggest points (including 2 of the biggest 3's) of her basketball career in the final 8 mins. of the game.
