Louisville Women Fall To Connecticut, 81-64

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

In the first of at least two rematches of last year's national championship game, the Louisville women's team was overwhelmed by No. 1 Connecticut and fell 81-64 in Storrs.

The loss was U of L's 14th straight to the Huskies, and the 31st straight overall win for UConn, which beat the Cards by 33 to claim the 2013 title last April in New Orleans.

Asia Taylor led the way with 18 points for Louisville, which took its first loss in AAC play and saw its 16-game winning streak snapped. The Cards were playing their second straight game without starting point guard Bria Smith, who is dealing with tendinitis in her knees.

U of L will see UConn again on March 3 in the regular season finale for both teams. There's also a strong chance that the two will meet again in the AAC Tournament as well as the NCAA Tournament. Don't think Jeff Walz was showing his full hand this afternoon.

The "unfinished business" this team keeps talking about can't be finished in the regular season.
