Well it certainly wasn't Uconn's most glamorous performance, but in the second half, Maya Moore and the Uconn women made it work. SB Nation's Uconn blog, The Uconn Blog, offers some praise:
Let us never mention anything about this actual game ever again, except to say that Maya Moore became an utter legend in the second half. Once she started hitting shots, it was all over. This was her night, her star-making moment on the biggest stage.
Whether you follow the women all season, or you just tuned in tonight, this is an amazing accomplishment. Having covered the team for parts of all four of my years in Storrs, I'm proud to see Geno, Tina, Maya and the rest kick the ass of anyone who's challenged them. They represent the school tremendously.
Next year, Moore's senior year, the goal will be to make it to 11-0 next season and eclipse John Wooden's all-time mark. From there, it will be Geno's chance to FINALLY catch Pat Summitt in total championships.
