Reaching perfection at a very young age

BOWLER -- The Bowler sixth-grade boys basketball team did something this season that not many basketball teams on any level could do -- complete an undefeated season.

But that is just what the young Bowler squad did as they recently completed their season at 31-0 by winning their final tournament of the year in Gillett.

"This is the best sixth-grade team I've coached at Bowler and I haven't even seen many larger schools with a better team than this," coach Terry Nillissen said.

"I can't wait to start the season the right way and win lots of games," the New York Mets' new second baseman said during Sunday's workout at Shea Stadium.

Same goes for Luis Gonzalez.

"The last time we took the field for real, when we walked off we were world champions," the Arizona star said. "All the guys are anxious and eager."

Cash provides scoring, defensive punch for UConn title

The Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Swin Cash was Connecticut's money player all season.

She did nothing to change that Sunday night in the Huskies' 82-70 national championship victory over Oklahoma.

The senior second-team All-American was everywhere against the Sooners, scoring 20 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. She also dished out four assists and made 10 of 12 free throws.

She was just as important on the defensive end, pairing with Tamika Williams to keep Oklahoma All-American guard Stacey Dales in check most the game.

UConn proves to be perfect team

The Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Not even an imperfect game could keep Connecticut from a perfect season.

Surviving an uncharacteristic rash of turnovers and poor outside shooting with strong inside play, the Huskies beat Oklahoma 82-70 on Sunday night for their third national championship.

The frontcourt trio of Swin Cash, Asjha Jones and Tamika Williams led the Huskies (39-0) to an overwhelming rebounding advantage -- and on this night, they sure needed it.

Not much in common except playing for a national championship

The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) -- Pick a point, any point: History, style, coach, expectations. Indiana and Maryland aren't close on any of them.

They are, however, the only college basketball teams still playing, and one will leave the Georgia Dome on Monday night as national champion.

Indiana is trying to win its sixth national title. Maryland is in the championship game for the first time.
