NCAA Women's Tournament: controversial ending sends UConn to 13th consecutive final after beating Baylor


College basketball fans were in for a treat on Monday night, with an NCAA Women’s Tournament game between UConn and Baylor that felt more like a championship game than an Elite Eight showdown. The game broke down, but No.1 UConn did what he always seems to do and secured a ticket to the Final Four, their 13th in a row, with a 69-67 victory.

Many crucial close games come with a bit of controversy and we have had opposing views from many on the close of the close battle. On Baylor’s last position, people were calling for a foul on UConn, but nothing was called.

People pointed to a shot from Dijonai Carrington, saying she was clearly the victim of a foul.

Take a look and decide for yourself:

NBA star LeBron James weighed in on the debate, saying, “Cmy man !!! It was a CRAZY !! ”

Carrington had four straight free throws, putting Baylor 68-67 with just 20 seconds left. Christyn Williams suffered a foul and was fortunate enough to land two free throws, but missed them both, giving Baylor a chance to win.

Olivia Nelson-Ododa and Aaliyah Edwards were facing Carrington to prevent him from making a winning shot for Baylor, the play that ended up leading to a debate.

Before the controversial end, both teams were doing serious work, with UConn going 19-0 at one point in the game and coming back from a 10-point deficit.

Paige Bueckers of the Huskies finished the game with an impressive 28 points to clear the way for her team, enlisting the help of Williams who had 21 points.
