SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Sue Bird says the ending to the Baylor-UConn Sweet 16 matchup is actually good for the growth of women's basketball.
Bird said Tuesday people are talking about the sport even if it's a little controversial.
There has been a lot of discussions about the no-call that resulted in UConn advancing to its 13th straight Final Four.
Now, the two-time NCAA champion makes no bones about being very happy the Huskies beat Baylor.
Bird also says if there's no call, it's not a foul.
Another former UConn standout Diana Taurasi says she would be pretty mad if she had been the shooter and there was no call.
