The University of Louisville women’s basketball team has many Final Four appearances, conference championships, and stunning victories in showcase games.
The only team they have not beaten is UConn. OK, Louisville beat them once in the 1993 postseason tournament but that was light years ago.
Cards head coach Jeff Walz has bolstered this once pedestrian franchise into a perennial power but he has lost to Connecticut six times. The Louisville program had lost 17 consecutive games versus UConn over the years.
That losing streak is OVER!
Asia Durr lit it up and her teammates came through like never before in dispatching UConn with its second lump of the year. UConn lost to Baylor a month ago and rarely loses twice during the regular season.
Add this victory to the city of Louisville’s Great Sporting Moments.
