Congratulations UConn Huskies!

April 13, 2024

With their resounding victory Monday night, our beloved Huskies earned their sixth NCAA men's basketball championship in just the last 25 years.

Along with the UConn women's 11 national titles, there is no doubt that Storrs, CT is truly the "basketball capital of the world!"

UConn National Champs

In addition to their dominance on the court, UConn's success is a source of pride for all of Connecticut and helps bring deserved attention to our flagship university which is consistently rated as one of the top colleges in the country.


Record number of prospective student applicants continue to flood the admissions office, and UConn's presence and impact throughout the state is evident at growing branch campuses in Hartford, Stamford and Waterbury.

Downtown Hartford will host a parade this Saturday to celebrate this latest championship run. Thousands of Husky fans are expected to visit the Capital City to share in the joy and excitement of another great season.

Sports championships can be great community unifiers that bring so many people together, and UConn's continued athletic success helps remind us all how important the University of Connecticut is as an academic institution and economic engine for our entire state.
