HARTFORD — Every UConn women’s basketball season since current players were at the age of Play-Doh, if not playpens, has been a road to the Final Four. The Huskies have reached a national semifinal and played in the final weekend of the NCAA Tournament every year since 2007.
Games like Saturday’s 78-41 victory over Xavier and stretches like the one the Huskies will now embark on are usually just necessary steps toward the regular, taken-for-granted destination, not necessarily events that shed light on whether the team is actually capable.
