- CASSANDRA NEGLEY: If you didn't know Arizona and Aarion McDonald, you definitely know them now. Arizona dominated the 11-time national champion UConn Huskies and freshman phenom Paige Bueckers in the Final Four. Arizona is moving on to the title game with a 69-59 victory. That's on the back of Aarion McDonald, who came out shooting hot from 3-point range. She's been doing it really well the past few games, and it's been huge for the Wildcats this tournament. She scored 26, she had seven rebounds, and she made four 3-pointers, one of which started the game. And Arizona never trailed UConn.

Paige Bueckers had 18 points. She wasn't able to lift UConn late in the game, although she tried. Christyn Williams had 20 points. She fouled out with about four minutes left in foul that didn't look to be a foul, so it was unfortunate to see her on the bench.

Arizona will play Stanford in the title game on Sunday. It's an all Pac 12 championship game. They've played twice before. Arizona lost both of those games, but that's not the same team that we're seeing right now. Aarion's hot, Adia Barnes has gotten her team into the right mindset for a title game, and they're going to give Stanford a good run.
