Dual Champions: The UConn Huskies

It’s not often both the Men’s and Women’s basketball teams from the same University win the NCAA championship; in fact, it’s only happened once before, in 2004. And yep, it was the University of Connecticut Huskies.

Storrs, Connecticut isn’t even a town or township. Officially it’s a zip code. But it’s also the home of champions. In 19 years the Huskies have won 13 NCAA Basketball Championships–a record 9 for the women and 4 for the men.

uconnI went to graduate school at UConn, and taught classes with members of each team for a number of semesters. I enjoyed working with them as well as watching them play. I soon became a fan(atic).

Years later, I remain a huge fan. What UConn’s basketball teams have accomplished over the years is amazing.

Go Huskies!
