The UConn Huskies women’s basketball team may not be playing its collective best for 40 minutes offensively. But on defense, that’s a whole different story. After a quick start by the Stanford Cardinal and a slow start on the offensive end themselves, the Huskies defense went into lock-down mode. When that happened the game changed. And in the end, UConn found themselves with a 75-56 win over Stanford in the 2014 Women’s Final Four at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN on Sunday night. The Huskies (39-0) will take on fellow unbeaten and former Big East rival, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (37-0), in Tuesday night’s NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship Game. The Cardinal finish their season at 33-4. AP National Player of the Year Breanna Stewart led UConn with 18 points and seven rebounds while blocking two shots. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis was shutout in the first half but scored all of her 15 points in the second half. Bria Hartley chipped in with 13 points and four assists. Both Moriah Jefferson and Stefanie Dolson each had 10 points with Dolson tying Stewart for the team-high in rebounds with seven. Jefferson added four assists and five steals. Kiah Stokes came off the bench to add nine points and four rebounds. Amber Orrange paced Stanford with 16 points.  Probable No. 1 pick in the WNBA Draft next week, Chiney Oguwike, had a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds while Lili Thompson had 12 points.
