March Madness: Paige Bueckers drops 28 points, leads UConn past USC to reach Final Four

Paige Bueckers has led UConn back to the Final Four.

Bueckers, who dealt with a string of injuries after a tremendous freshman season, powered the Huskies to an 80-73 win over No. 1 USC on Monday night in their Elite Eight matchup at the Moda Center in Portland. That officially earned UConn its 23rd Final Four berth in program history, and its third trip in the last four years. The Huskies have not lost a regional final game in the NCAA tournament since 2007.

The Huskies will now take on Caitlin Clark and Iowa in the Final Four on Friday night in Cleveland.
