Atascadero native Hannah Donaghe is possibly less than 24 hours away from winning an NCAA national championship. The junior guard and the Stanford women will meet #1 Connecticut in the women's NCAA championship game on Tuesday night in San Antonio, Texas.
UConn beat Stanford earlier this season 80-68. The Huskies have won a record 77 straight games and are one win away from their second straight perfect season and national title. Stanford is the last time to beat the Huskies, back in the Final Four of the 2008 NCAA Tournament.
Donaghe said the Cardinal women believe they can upset Connecticut. "I think if we can get rebounds, clean up the boards and stay aggressive, offensively and defensively, I think we have a really good shot," said Donaghe during a phone interview from San Antonio with KSBY Sports.
The Atascadero High graduate has played five minutes in Stanford's Tournament run.
The women's championship game tips off at 5:30 pm PST on Tuesday. It will be Stanford's second title game appearance in the last three years.
