Connecticut's championship victory last night was the capstone to one of the most impressive seasons in women's basketball history. Here, Tiffany Hayes flies toward the basket in the first half.
The Huskies boast a 39-0 record and six national titles. They won by double digits in every game this season. In this second-round game against Florida, senior point guard Renee Montgomery reaches for the basket.

Connecticut was not the only team with an impressive season. Louisville defeated two No. 1 seeds to make it to the national championship. It was their first Final Four appearance. Here, they compete with the Huskies' Charles (left), Moore (right) and Kalana Greene for possession.
It was an impressive season nationwide for women's basketball. Columnist Christine Brennan attributes this in part to an increasing interest in basketball among young girls. Players like Tina Charles embody the strides that women have made in athletics over the past few decades.
The undefeated Huskies celebrate their win over the Cardinals.
