Connecticut Huskies cruise to sixth NCAA championship

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- There comes a point in every dominant UConn NCAA tournament win when Dan Hurley finally relaxes. Two straight years, 12 straight games. It's become an inevitability.

In the first four gam6es of this year's tournament, it came early in the second half. Against Alabama, it didn't come until Tristen Newton's 3 with 1:04 left to put the game out of reach. Hurley looked at the UConn crowd and put up three fingers.

And against Purdue, it came after Newton was fouled by Zach Edey on a jumpshot with 3:50 remaining.
