The Open Thread: UConn vs. Stanford Final Four

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The men's team has already punched its ticket to the finals, now it's time for the women to punch theirs.

Ten years ago, both the mens and womens basketball teams won the National Championship within days of each other, and to this day UConn remains the only school to accomplish the feat. Now with the mens team already in the finals, the school will have a chance to win both titles in the same year again, but first the women have to take care of business against Stanford.

The Cardinal, of course, are one of the best teams in the country and have been a persistent thorn in the Huskies side over the years. Stanford eliminated UConn from the tournament in 2008 in the national semifinal, and they later went on to break the Huskies' 90-game winning stream during the 2010-11 season. UConn also beat Stanford in a National Championship game during that stretch, and since then the two teams have battled every year.

Brian has more on Stanford and the two teams' recent history here, but for the next two hours, the only thing that matters is who shows up tonight in Nashville. Tipoff is only a few minutes away, so let show the women some love! GO HUSKIES!
