business news in context, analysis with attitude

In the NCAA women's basketball final last night, the University of Connecticut defeated Notre Dame 79-58, completing a fifth undefeated season for the university's women's program. The New York Times reports that the win gives coach Geno Auriemma "one title more than his former nemesis, Pat Summitt of Tennessee, and only one fewer than John Wooden, whose pyramid of success brought 10 national titles to the men’s team at U.C.L.A."

And, the Times writes, for a school "whose early mission was agriculture, UConn has come to regularly harvest basketball championships. The women’s team again shares a national title with the men, as it did in 2004. Since 1999, the Huskies men and women have made a combined 17 appearances at the Final Four. Duke is next with eight."
