UConn/Louisville set for national championship game rematch

The last time UConn and Louisville squared off the stakes were significantly higher.

With Breanna Stewart and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis combining for 41 points and 18 rebounds UConn won the program's record-tying eighth NCAA title with a 93-60 victory in New Orleans.

Today the Huskies and Cardinals will meet again at a sold-out Gampel Pavilion. It will mark just the 24th time during the NCAA era that a regular-season game will feature a national championship game rematch. This will be UConn's ninth such game, trailing only the 13 Tennessee has taken part in. It should not come as a shock to hear that either UConn and Tennessee have been involved in 18 of the previous 23 rematches. The defending champs have won 14 of the first 23 meetings and in the chart below the title-winning team is in all caps.
