TAMPA — Tom Cruise took in a women's Final Four game on Sunday night, watching UConn beat Maryland 81-58.

The three-time Academy Award nominee sat in a suite above the Terrapins bench and received a loud ovation from the crowd when the cameras showed him on the video board.

It wasn't clear who he was rooting for. Not that it mattered to UConn star Breanna Stewart, who scored 25 points to lead the Huskies to the victory.

"No. Where was he? Oh, my gosh," she gushed after the game. "I didn't even get to meet him."

The 52-year-old Cruise has starred in several sports movies. He's played a variety of sports roles, including a football player and an agent — but not a basketball player or hoop coach. At least not recently.
