The 2014 NCAA Women's Basketball Championship live stream and TV coverage will take place tonight when the Connecticut Huskies take on the Notre Dame Irish to decide this year's championship. These two teams know each other very well and are both worthy of being crowned champions, but of course only one will remain standing in the end. Tonight's NCAA live streaming action is truly a battle of two of the best team in Women's basketball history.
According to an ESPN report on April 8, these two squads may have respect for each other, but the love doesn't run deep. Forget the hype or the reasons why these two teams don't care for each other, they just want to get this game going. The fact that Notre Dame is 37-0 and UCONN is 39-0 speaks volumes. Irish coach Muffet McGraw is done with words and is ready for action.
"I think we are past that point," Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said of the notion of civility between the rival programs, which will be the first undefeated teams in the history of the women's tournament to meet for the NCAA title.
"When we were in the same conference, there was a modicum of it. But I think after beating them and still not feeling any respect for that, we definitely lost something."
Notre Dame may not feel respected, but with a win tonight they won't need to worry what people think of them as a team because they will be the NCAA champions.
The Irish got to the NCAA championship by beating Robert Morris, Arizona State, Oklahoma State, Baylor and Maryland - now the team that was No. 1 in the nation for most of the 2013-14 season is the last hurdle.
UCONN's path to the championship started by defeating Prairie View A&M then St Joes, BYU, Texas A&M & Stanford. With a smothering defense that allows only 47 points per game, Notre Dame willhave their work cut out for them.
Las Vegas odds makers have UCONN listed as an 8 point favorite with the over/under number set at 143.
Fans can catch all of the action for this game starting at 8:30 p.m. EST on ESPN and streaming live online through WatchESPN.
