2022 NCAA women's championship delivered 4.85 million viewers

On Sunday, the No. 1 seed South Carolina Gamecocks defeated the No. 2 seed Connecticut Huskies, 64-49, to win the 2022 NCAA women's basketball championship. 

The game had 4.85 million viewers, making it "the most-watched college basketball game on ESPN (men or women) since 2008," tweeted ESPN's Flora Kelly. Viewership peaked at 5.91 million.

This year, viewership was up 18% from 2021 and up 30% from 2019. This was the most-watched women's national championship since 2004 (when Connecticut defeated Tennessee and Diana Taurasi won Most Outstanding Player).

The 2022 NCAA women's basketball tournament set a number of records, as ESPN PR pointed out: 

The NCAA men's basketball championship also had incredible ratings, with Kansas' win over UNC delivering an average of 18.1 million viewers, becoming the most-viewed NCAA men's championship ever on cable television.
