Connecticut has won them all this season, and Stanford has won them all except a game against the Huskies. So it's only fitting that the women's national championship comes down to a rematch between them. U Conn will be going for its 78th consecutive win and a second straight unbeaten season, which has never happened in women's college basketball. Not that the Huskies need reasons to be confident, but it can only help knowing they've beaten the Lady Cardinals once this season and during the Final Four last season. The Cardinals gave U Conn its toughest game this season, losing by only 12. Stanford also was the last team to beat Connecticut, back during the 2008 Final Four. The Huskies defeated Stanford 80-68 when the teams met Dec. 23 in Hartford, Conn. That's the closest any team has come all season to Connecticut, which has won every game during its streak by double digits.
