In the final game of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament, Louisville Cardinals will play the Connecticut Huskies on Tuesday.

While the Louisville men's Basketball team took home the championship title Monday night against Michigan, the women's team will try to defeat No. 1-seeded UConn for the school's first NCAA women's title. UConn is going for the team's record-tying eight championship win, led by head-coach Geno Auriemma never losing a championship game. 

A win over the Cardinals would be not only be UConn's eighth title, but will match them with Tennessee for the most championship in women's basketball.

However, Auriemma doesn't want to think about winning just yet. 

''Talking about things that haven't happened yet is never a good idea,'' Auriemma said.

The Huskies, led by Breanna Stewart, has carried the team on one of the most remarkable journeys of any freshman player in the history of the NCAA tournament, The Associated Press reported. 

Stewart was recognized at the most outstanding player of the Bridgeport regional and had a season-high 29 points in the semifinal win over UConn rival Notre Dame. Louisville head coach Jeff Walz also credited Stewart, who already managed to score 82 points in the NCAA tournament in just four games. 

"I was sitting next to Jim Boeheim at the Olympics and we were talking during the gold medal game," Walz said. "He said, 'There's this kid that plays in the open gym with the women up at Syracuse and she's going to UConn and is one of the best players I've ever seen.' "

Stewart will be a problem for Walz and the rest of the Cardinals as they attempt to upset the nation's favorite women's team. Walz knows his team is capable of beating UConn, just like they did with Baylor and California. 

''It's going to take the best game we've played to date,'' Walz said. ''We are going to have to play better than we played against Baylor, Tennessee and Cal."
