Nice personal milestones for sure, but far from the biggest prize.

Connecticut Offense by Passes Completed
NEXT-LEVEL: UConn F Maya Moore led all scorers Tuesday with 28 points on 12-18 shooting and was perfect from the field when she got to the rim. Moore went 7-7 from the floor on shots within five feet of the basket including 4-4 in the second half when the Huskies pulled away.
UConn completed the double dip in 2004. This year, the UConn men do what the UConn women couldn't do, win the national title. The opposite happened in 2009. Of the 9 schools to have both men's and women's teams in the Final Four in the same season, 6 of them had both teams leave empty handed.[+]
