Championship Parade

In April of 2004 UConn became the first school to have it’s men’s and women’s basketball teams win NCAA championships in the same season.  The men beat Georgia Tech on a Monday night and the next night the women whipped Tennessee.  For the men it was their second NCAA title having also won in 1999.  For the women it was their fifth National championship and third in a row as they had brought titles to Storrs in 1995, 2000, 2002 and 2003.

The UConn men ride on through the Soldiers & Sailors Arch in Bushnell Park.

The UConn women ride on the float past the Soldiers & Sailors Arch in Hartford.

    Hopefully we get some more of these soon

  2. Yea I was thinking the same thing when I created the post. I really thought the women were going to do it last year but they have a great team again even without EDD.

    The mens team has potential as well.

    Thanks for the nice post!
