You have to give Syracuse credit for making it this far as a fourth seed, especially when its the school's first Final Four and championship apperance on the women's side. However, we all know the deal when it comes to UConn basketball. The Huskies don't play whatsoever and have won eight straight games by at least 21 points. There's an actual law that says you can't bet against UConn women. Look it up.
Anyway, the Huskies win this game by at least 25 points.
