UConn Huskies survive in 2OT to beat NC State, make 14th consecutive Final Four

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- UConn women's basketball saw its streak of consecutive Final Four appearances extended to 14 Monday night, as the 2-seed Huskies defeated 1-seed NC State 91-87 in a double-overtime thriller in the Bridgeport regional final.

They'll face 1-seed Stanford, which took down 2-seed Texas, on Friday.

The Wolfpack, meanwhile, fell short of appearing in the program's first Final Four since 1998.

Sophomore Paige Bueckers, who missed 19 games earlier this season due to a knee injury, looked like her reigning national player of the year self with 27 points on 10-15 shooting from the field, while freshman Azzi Fudd added 19 and senior Christyn Williams finished with 21.
