Defensive Score Sheet: Connecticut 63, Florida 53

Those scrappy dogs won't let up. Led by its harassing defense, UConn absolutely frazzled a national championship favorite and now finds itself just 40 minutes away from a national title.

For those who thought UConn's 60-54 win against Michigan State was a fluke this game proves just how good the Huskies are playing right now on the defensive end. Surrendering an average of 53.5 points to two extremely good offenses, highlighted by completely taking the point guard out of the game, has been a clinic and a pleasure to watch for defensive purists.

Here's the Defensive Score Sheet from UConn's 63-53 win, giving the Huskies their second finals appearance in four seasons, their third Final Four in six years and a chance at their fourth national championship since 1999.


For reference, here's UConn's defensive dirty work against Michigan State in the Elite Eight.
