UConn’s elimination in March Madness’ Sweet 16 good for women’s game

SEATTLE — The dynasty is dead, officially. 

For the first time in 15 postseasons, the women’s Final Four (and Elite Eight) will not include the UConn Huskies, the most dominant program in women’s basketball this century. 

In a tournament full of stunning upsets, Ohio State pulled off the biggest one yet, beating the Huskies 73-61 to advance to the Elite Eight.   

Two No. 1 seeds (Stanford and Indiana) had already fallen by the time the Buckeyes and Huskies tipped off Saturday. But UConn’s surprising departure — the Huskies haven’t missed an Elite Eight since 2005 — signals a shift.
