INDIANAPOLIS — Over the last 16 years, women's college basketball has been more like a predictable drama than a thriller. Rarely has there been a surprise ending.
Notre Dame and Texas A&M changed that this year, knocking off top seeds on their way to the national championship game. It's been five seasons since Connecticut or Tennessee wasn't playing for the title.
UConn coach Geno Auriemma says the game between the Aggies and Fighting Irish is a good sign.
And ESPN suggests that's true, too. The network that has covered the women's tournament exclusively for the past 16 years said its most-watched game was back in 1999, when Purdue beat Duke.
Auriemma says having someone else win keeps people interested.
