The University of Louisville tries for the historic basketball sweep tonight in the NCAA women's national championship game. With the U of L winning the men's national championship last night, the Cardinals have a chance to become only the second Division I school to win the NCAA men's and women's basketball championships in the same season. Appropriately, women's basketball superpower Connecticut stands in Louisville's way: appropriate because Connecticut is the only other school to accomplish the double national championship feat (2004).

How did these teams get here? I am not going to talk about that. I thought I could. But it still hurts too much. So I will just leave it at that.

This is your open thread if you can bring yourself to watch this game and fight your emotional thoughts of "what might have been."
