WHAT TO WATCH

Feeling confident: The Cardinals have had an incredible run in the tournament, defeating LSU in Baton Rouge in the second round, top seed Maryland in the Raleigh Regional final, and then another top seed, Oklahoma, on Sunday night in the national semifinals.

Defense, defense: Angel McCoughtry (St. Frances) was the Big East's Defensive Player of the Year. But the most important aspect of the game might be how the Huskies defend her. In the past, Connecticut has done a decent job when the game was on the line.
