2023 NCAA Tournament history
Last time UConn was in national championship game
This win marks UConn’s fifth national championship appearance and their first since 2014, when they beat the Kentucky Wildcats, 60-54. The Huskies have won every national championship game that they have played — in 1999, 2004, 2011, and 2014. They have appeared in six Final Fours in program history, and in 12 Elite Eights.
This year’s UConn team has been on an unstoppable run as they blew out tournament opponent after tournament opponent. They have won their five tournament games by an average margin of 20.6 points. They take on San Diego State on Monday.
