NCAA women's final gets high TV rating
BRISTOL, Conn. -- The championship game between two undefeated teams drew the highest television rating for women's basketball in a decade.
UConn's 79-58 win over Notre Dame on ESPN on Tuesday earned a 2.8 rating. That's the best since a 3.5 for the UConn-Tennessee final in 2004.
The Huskies' big lead prevented a higher rating, but it was still up 40 percent from last year's UConn-Louisville final.
Ratings represent the percentage of homes with televisions tuned to a program.
