Arizona will face UConn in its first Final Four in program history while the Huskies are going to their 13th straight Final Four.
The Huskies have been to it 21 times with 11 championships to show for it.
They are led by star freshman guard Paige Bueckers who is averaging 20.1 points a game.
It’ll be the task of Arizona’s defense to try to slow Bueckers down and try to limit her opportunities.
Sam Thomas vs Paige Bueckers . I believe Sam has defensive I.Q , size and speed to slow her down. Deny her open 3 pt attempts. Arizona will double her on ball screens. She can pass it but she beats you with her scoring. 🐻⬇️
