UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma and his players and coaching staff watch as Notre Dame closes the Huskies out Monday night in South Bend.
(Patrick Raycraft / Hartford Courant / March 3, 2013)
Don’t let fans of the UConn women’s basketball team near a leprechaun this St. Patrick’s Day. The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame, cheered by their leprechaun mascot, keep finding a way to defeat the Huskies in agonizing fashion. Monday’s triple-overtime game was as frustrating a loss as we’ve endured in years. A made foul shot here, taking better care of the ball there, and the Huskies walk off a winner. But it was not meant to be. Was there a leprechaun hiding behind Notre Dame’s basket? Did Muffet outcoach Geno? UConn and Notre Dame could face each other in both the Big East and NCAA tournaments. Who will win?
