The main goal of the UConn women’s basketball team every season is to win the national championship. As we’ve seen, they’re pretty good at doing that having won nine national championships, including four of the last six.
So when the UConn women’s basketball team wins a conference tournament title or a regional final to send them to the Final Four, they don’t cut the nets down.
The reason, the UConn women’s basketball team savors the moment of being able to cut down the final net of the season which would be when they win the national championship.
In a bit of irony after they beat the Dayton Flyers in the Albany Regional final, the UConn women’s basketball team was given t-shirts, made by Nike for the NCAA, that said “Cut The Net“.
Watch and/or listen below as UConn women’s basketball players Morgan Tuck, Moriah Jefferson, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Breanna Stewart talk about why they don’t cut the nets down.
