The Lady Huskies being in the National Championship game is like paying taxes, it going to happen no matter what anyone say or do. Lady Huskies is an outstanding defensive squad and beating their opponents by more than 10 points is a testament to it. The balance offense when clicking is unstoppable and it led by the all world player Center Tina Charles. The outside game of Maya Moore and Kalana Greene opens up things for Charles in the middle. Charles cannot get lost on the offensive end and Moore cannot settle for jump shots because this is only way the Lady Huskies struggles. They will dance all the way to San Antonio, Texas

The three teams that has a chance to face the Lady Huskies in the National Championship game are:

1. Stanford Cardinals has a very good chance of reaching the final to challenge UConn. Pac 10 Player of the Year Nnemkadi Ogwumike and Jayne Appel must have superb tournament to ensure they play UConn. Their inside play is unmatched by most teams they will face. Stanford team is relentless on the boards; therefore like their chances to get second shot at bringing the Lady Huskies winning streak to an end.

2. Nebraska Cornhuskers is the next team that has a chance but it would be difficult for Cornhuskers to beat a very good Stanford squad. Big 12 player of Year Kelsey Griffin must avoid foul trouble be the relentless scorer on the inside.

3. Notre Dame Lady Fighting Irish Notre Dame has chance to reach finals but they are many obstacles that stand in their way and that are bigger more athletic squads. Defense is key component for the Lady Irish to make a long run. They forces team to turn the ball over and the play of Skylar Diggins will also dictate how well the squad will do. She can score but scoring can come from almost anyone on this team.

In the end, these one of three teams will play the Lady Huskies and Stanford Cardinals has the tools to get there. Stanford winning the game, I doubt they can win but anything can happen as one can look at Men’s tournament for example. UConn is too strong and anyone they face would be just another team to add to list of victories as they remain unbeaten and collect another National Championship.
