The Huskies tied the game at 64-64 on a pair of Katie Lou Samuelson foul shots with 25 seconds remaining.
"On the right night, the right team could get them", Wilson said. For me to make that shot against them, it's unbelievable.
"I think Morgan might have Dak beat right now", teammate Dominique Dillingham said. I wanted to take the shot. "Daughter-father, just had that bond, it was like I want the ball in my hands", she said. But Huskies coach Geno Auriemma said he wasn't surprised by the result. There wasn't much else he could do, another title suddenly beyond his grasp.
The Huskies hadn't lost in 865 days, with that defeat going to Stanford on November 17, 2014. "We beat the greatest team, with the greatest streak in the history of sports." he said.
But, she added, ending UConn's winning streak will mean nothing if the Bulldogs don't finish the job and win a national title on Sunday night against SEC foe SC.
UConn routed Mississippi State by 60 points in the 2016 Sweet Sixteen. That loss has been on their mind all season and they finally got their ultimate redemption by knocking off the top team in women's NCAA basketball.

Now they've erased that loss, beating UConn (36-1) - which had won the past four national championships - on the grandest stage. They're playing at an all-time high. "I am a proud Mississippian".
With the game tied at 62 and less than 90 seconds left, Mississippi State again managed to take the lead thanks to some excellent post play.
William seized her opportunity, snaking her way inside the three-point line and launching a rainbow shot over Williams that went down just as the final buzzer sounded.

Prescott said he'd try to come back Sunday for the title game.
UConn rallied from a 16-point first-half deficit, its biggest during its NCAA record streak, to take a 59-56 lead in the fourth quarter. We just had to go out there and play. "We didn't come this far for nothing".
The Gamecocks won the regular season SEC championship, finishing a game in front of second-place Mississippi State. The women's Final Four single-game record for rebounds is 23 by North Carolina's Charlotte Smith in 1994's championship game. But that momentum dissipated, leading to a back-and-forth game the rest of the way and tie scores after the third and fourth quarters. The Bulldogs led 15-13 before scoring 14 consecutive points to go up 29-13. After three starters were drafted in the first round of the WNBA draft, this would be the year that the Huskies would lose a game or two.

I feel like we earned respect tonight. "But just the feeling of just making history at your school is just something really special".
