Bulldog's buzzer-beater ends UConn's 111-game winning streak

DALLAS, Texas (KTRK) -- Mississippi State women's basketball is heading to it's first ever national championship, after a stunning buzzer-beater in overtime.

A year after an embarrassing 60-point loss to mighty UConn in the Sweet 16, Morgan William's overtime buzzer-beating jumper gave them a 66-64 victory over the four-time defending national champion Huskies in the national semifinals Friday night.

"Well, Coach called the timeout. He was like, 'Morgan, you can win the game.' That's what he said," William said. "When I made the shot, I was in shock. I'm still in shock."

So is UConn. This officially ends UConn's 111 game win streak.

Mississippi State faces South Carolina in the National Championship on Sunday.

The Bulldogs, with four seniors and four juniors, will play South Carolina in an all-SEC matchup for the national title.
