Former Hopkins standout Paige Bueckers was thrilled and Baylor's DiJonai Carrington not so much after UConn's 69-67 victory in the NCAA women's basketball tournament in San Antonio on Monday to advance to the Final Four.

SAN ANTONIO - It took a great game from phenomenal freshman Paige Bueckers and a last-second stop with a disputed non-foul call to keep UConn's run of Final Four appearances going.

Bueckers scored 28 points and top seed UConn used a huge run spanning the final two quarters to beat No. 2 Baylor 69-67 on Monday night and reach a 13th consecutive Final Four in the women's NCAA Tournament.

"Each year that we do it, I still can't believe it," said UConn coach Geno Auriemma, who was showered by his team with confetti after the game.
