Dawgs Dominate NCAA Regionals in Seattle

The Huskies continued to play well when it matters most, the post season!

The red-hot Dawgs crushed Iona, BYU & Northwestern on their way to their 10th straight regional championship in Head Coach Heather Tarr's 10th year. They now advance to the Super Regional Sweet 16 for the 9th time in the last 10 years. That is currently the most dominant post season run by any school in the Pac 12.
