More Mechelle: Rematch about much more than revenge: UConn and Stanford both feel they have plenty to prove in Sunday's nightcap
Sure, you could condense this to a revenge rematch. This would be, say, the Twitter version of Connecticut vs. Stanford:

Reversal of fortune? Moore, Monty and Tina hope unbeaten No. 1 Huskies avenge 2008 national semifinal loss to Appel's Cardinal.

That wouldn't be inaccurate … but it also would not capture the nuances of how Sunday's UConn vs. Stanford 2009 (ESPN, 9 p.m. ET) is different from the previous year's version in the Final Four. But perhaps "nuance" is too, um, nuanced a word.
