UConn Women Put Together Historically Dominant Performance In Sweet 16 Win

It's no secret that UConn's women's basketball team is the best squad in the nation - considering they have a 35-0 record and the overall No. 1 seed in this year's NCAA Tournament. But what the Huskies accomplished today is actually astounding.

UConn, in its Sweet 16 contest against 5-seed Mississippi State, beat the Bulldogs by 60 points. The final score, which could have been far, far worse if UConn had played its starters all game, was 98-38. Reminder - this wasn't a first or second round game. It's the largest margin in NCAA Tournament history for a Sweet 16 game.

UConn, led by Breanna Stewart's 22 points, actually led 61-12 at halftime. They could have stopped trying to score midway through the contest and still won by 23 points.

The obvious question here - is UConn's dominance good for women's college hoops? Or would it be better without one dominant program?
