On one hand, the Louisville women were hoping to join their men's team as champions.

On the other hand, UConn head coach Geno Auriemma was hoping to join legendary Tennessee coach Pat Summitt as the only women's coaches to win 8 championships.

Auriemma and UConn got it done in convincing fashion, beating the Cardinals 93-60 in the biggest blowout in women's NCAA championship history. The 33-point margin of victory easily passed Summitt's 1987 Tennessee team, which beat Louisiana Tech by 23.

Freshman Breanna Stewart won the Most Outstanding Player award, and it looks like she'll be helping Auriemma and the Huskies win at least one more championship in the next few seasons.

Congratulations to the UConn women's team on another incredible season.
