Stunner! Mississippi State ends UConn's 111-game win streak in NCAA semis

Schaefer grabbed William in a bear hug, with former Mississippi State star Dak Prescott - the Dallas Cowboys quarterback - helping lead the cheers in a sellout crowd.

The Hall of Fame coach loses just one starter, senior point guard Saniya Chong, from a team that won its first 36 games and helped establish an NCAA record 111-game winning streak before being upset by Mississippi State, 66-64, on Friday night in the national semifinals. Morgan William for Mississippi State put up the final buzzer beater shot that sent Bulldogs fans into an absolute joyous craze. Let's go to the video. The win came as sweet revenge for the Bulldogs after they lost to UConn in the Sweet 16 round in 2016 by 60 points!

Mississippi State pulled off arguably the greatest upset in women's basketball history, shocking UConn.

Not when there's one more game to win, not when there's a national championship on the line against SEC rival SC. Replays suggested a foul could have been called on Mississippi State but no call was made. "That is one heck of a basketball team, the greatest of all-time".

"Of course the kids in the locker room are disappointed we lost and disappointed we didn't play our regular UConn kind of game, but. you realize that they kicked our butts tonight in some really important areas". "I'm shy, I'm not just like social butterfly", William said Saturday.

"I'm proud of what they've been able to do, how much they changed from last October, you know".

Brit Johanna Konta beats Wozniacki in Miami Open final
The Dane has made two finals and one quarter-finals in her last three tournaments, but is yet to win a title this season. Wozniacki, in 2017 has already played two finals, lost in Doha and Dubai, against Karolina Pliskova and Elina Svitolina.

Historically speaking, this was one of the hardest games for the team to win. "I'm still in shock".

It was pretty much considered a formality that four-time defending national champion UConn would dispatch of upset-minded Mississippi State and would attempt to cap off a flawless season in Sunday's national championship game. William forces the tough shot and the ball goes out of bounds on UConn.

"Our kids know what's coming down the pike", Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer said. A defeated game can be controlled and regained by working together and with greater zeal but the Uconn Women S Basketball lacked that courage the other night when they couldn't control the game and it all went south with a shameful defeat ending their greatest streak.

UConn rallied from a 16-point deficit, its biggest during its NCAA record streak, to take a 59-56 lead in the fourth quarter. But that seemed like centuries ago on Friday night. Mississippi State had 6-foot-7 Teaira McCowan guard Williams in the high post knowing that there would be times when Williams would drive in for layups but McCowan's size would keep Williams from distributing the ball the way she has all season long. The teams were tied at 60 when the Bulldogs had a chance to win it in regulation, but William's shot was blocked by Gabby Williams, sending the game into overtime. Donovan McNabb was also in Dallas, cheering on niece Kia Nurse, who stars for CT.

SC rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit to advance to the national title game for the first time with a 62-53 victory over Stanford.

In the final minute, Katie Lou Samuelson was hit in the neck by Dominique Dillingham.
