HARTFORD, Conn. — Huge crowds have turned out for a downtown Hartford victory parade celebrating the national championships won by the University of Connecticut men's and women's basketball teams.
Cheers grew louder as the truck carrying the UConn band approached in the parade Sunday. By the time the men's and women's basketball teams went by the crowds were ecstatic.
Men's coach Kevin Ollie waved from the front of a parade truck while guard Ryan Boatright held up a hand displaying the No. 1 sign.
The UConn men's team beat Kentucky for the national title April 7, and the women's team defeated Notre Dame for its record-breaking ninth championship.
UConn is the only school to win the men's and women's Division I basketball championships in the same year, which they accomplished in 2004.
