Uconn wins March Madness with 76-59 smothering of SDSU

After six games and 240 minutes of pure dominance that ran through March, then part of April, it finally became clear there was only one thing that could stop the UConn Huskies.

In a dominating performance, the UConn Huskies have won the March Madness championship with a 76-59 victory over the San Diego State Aztecs.

UConn's lanky star forward, Adama Sanogo, won Most Outstanding Player honors, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds in the final, and Tristen Newton also had a double-double with 19 points and 10 boards.

The game was played in Houston, Texas and saw UConn take control early, building a double-digit lead in the first half.

Despite a second-half push by San Diego State, the Huskies never relinquished their lead and cruised to the championship.

 This is UConn's fourth March Madness championship and their first since 2014.

 Senior guard James Bouknight led the way for the Huskies, scoring 25 points and earning the tournament's Most Outstanding Player award.
