The #1 ranked Gamecocks' perfect season came to an end in Storrs, CT Monday night, as they fell to the #2 Huskies 87-62. At one point during the first half, the Gamecocks led by three, but a hostile crowd fueled the Huskies as they shot lights out.
The Huskies finished the night shooting 55 percent from the field, including 73 percent from three point land.
Despite the loss, the Gamecocks are focused on trying to remain positive.
"I think to accomplish some milestones we had, it's part of our journey," Head Coach Dawn Staley said. "Each time we need to learn a lesson, we're faced with it. We have a lot of basketball left to play."
The positive energy already seems to be rubbing off on the players.
When asked after the game if they wanted to play UConn again, they responded, "Oh yeah, Tomorrow!"
