The UConn Huskies came into Monday’s National Championship game against the Purdue Boilermakers looking nearly unbeatable, riding a 12-game winning streak that dates back to February. And when it came time for the highly anticipated game, they lived up to all the hype and then some.

It wasn’t a blowout an any means. But UConn was able to do what they have done all season long, control the game and systematically pick apart their opponent.

Purdue’s Zach Edey did all the could on the opposing side, finishing the game with a game-high 37 points to go along with ten rebounds. But at the end of the day, it was not enough to hold off a complete UConn team, as the Huskies came away with a 75-60 victory to win their second straight National Championship.

Four of the five starters for UConn finished with double digits in the game, which speaks to just how talented this UConn team truly was.

Fans took to social media to give the Huskies their flowers after what has been a truly dominant run through the NCAA Tournament.

What UConn has done in the last two seasons is truly unprecedented. Yes, teams have repeated in the past as National Champions. But the way that UConn did it is truly absurd.

Not only did UConn win every game of this year’s NCAA Tournament by double-digits. But they also did so last season. They also covered the betting spread in every tournament game over the last two seasons.

UConn is expected to lose many of its key players to the 2024 NBA Draft. So to say right now that they have a chance to three-peat as champions next season may be a bit bold.

However, Dan Hurley has clearly built a terrific program. And it is simply hard to bet again the program’s greatness at this point. So don’t be shocked if we see UConn in a similar situation competing for a third National Championship next year.
