I was frustrated that Geno did not remove Moore, however briefly, after the kick of the breakaway out of bounds. Why did he bury Charde Houston on the bench for all but five minutes, when she had been the only reliable scorer in the first half, and saved the team's bacon? Mystery to me. The team could not penetrate the Rutgers defense, but Charde shredded it, as she has every defense in the last six games when she can get the ball at the elbow or on the baseline. Why not force Rutgers to change defenses? It was not a fear that Charde could not defend: Geno put her in for an defense/offense switch.
I'm not the guy with five national championships, so there must be a reason; but in the Final Four, you need depth (especially against a deep Stanford team), and you have a one-time super player who is playing like the California H.S. scoring leader. LET HER PLAY. It's her last shot, and it just might help win a championship.

Stringer upset they only got to the line 5 times. UConn -lays a clean game. If the Rutgters fouls were called they would run out of players before the games was over
