Women's College Basketball: UConn vs. Tennessee

The <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="OREDU0000152" title="University of Connecticut" href="/topic/education/colleges-universities/university-of-connecticut-OREDU0000152.topic">UConn</a> and Tennessee women's basketball team's first met in the 1995, when the Huskies beat the Lady Volunteers 70-64 to finish their season a perfect 35-0 win their first National Championship. Since then, UConn-Tennessee has become women's college basketball's biggest rivalry, thanks in large part to the clashing personalities of UConn coach <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT008432" title="Geno Auriemma" href="/topic/sports/basketball/geno-auriemma-PESPT008432.topic">Geno Auriemma</a> and Tennessee coach Pat Summitt. The Huskies lead the all-time series 13-9, though the two teams discontinued their regular season meetings in 2007, meaning that the only chances they can meet in the forseeable future will be in the <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="EVSPR000001" title="NCAA Tournaments" href="/topic/sports/ncaa-tournaments-EVSPR000001.topic">NCAA Tournament</a>.
