By DOUG FEINBERG
PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Maya Moore had 23 points and 14 rebounds to
help Connecticut rally from a seven-point second half deficit and
beat Georgetown 68-63 on Sunday in the regional semifinals.
Bria Hartley added 17 points for UConn (35-1), which is now
three victories away from a third straight national championship
that would match the school's own run from 2002-04 and Tennessee's
This was the third meeting between the two Big East teams in the
past 30 days. UConn won the first two games by double digits, but
Georgetown was able to remain close in those games by forcing the
Huskies into a combined 47 turnovers with its relentless pressure.
The Hoyas showed no fear of the top seed from the start, giving
the Huskies all they could handle.
Monica McNutt scored 17 points for Georgetown (24-11).
