UConn defeated Purdue for a 75-60 victory to become the first team since 2007 to capture back-to-back national championships. Tristen Newton scored 20 points for the Huskies, who won their 12th straight March Madness game — not a single one of them decided by fewer than 13 points. UConn limited the country’s second-best 3-point shooting team to a mere seven shots behind the arc, and Purdue only made one. The Boilermakers were led by Zach Edey’s 37 points and 10 rebounds.
