UConn (19-2) advanced to its sixth NCAA Finals game after defeating Albany, 1-0, on Friday night. Senior forward Chloe Hunnable (Halstead, England) scored the 66th goal of her career just 3:16 minutes into the game as the Husky defense turned in its eighth shutout of the season and fifth-straight game keeping its opponent to one goal or less. The win marked UConn's season-best 13th in a row and also extended the Huskies' NCAA Tournament win-streak to seven.

The Huskies have now advanced to six NCAA Championship games in program history and sport a 3-2 mark in such contests. UConn is 1-0 all-time under head coach Nancy Stevens in the season's final game. The team is attempting to become just the fifth school to win at least two consecutive NCAA DI titles.

The Huskies are 27-11-1 all-time against Syracuse in a series that dates back to 1983. The two squads last met in the 2012 Big East Tournament final; a game which Connecticut won 4-3 courtesy of a goal from Hunnable in the game's final minute.

Connecticut is making its 26th appearance in the NCAA Tournament and the team owns a 36-22 record in NCAA Tournament play.  The Huskies won the inaugural Championship in 1981 and also took home the championship trophy in 1985 before winning the 2013 national crown with a 2-0 win over Duke last November. 

Syracuse advanced to the championship after knocking out No. 1 UNC in a shoot-out in the first of two semifinal games on Friday.
