All tag results for 'uconn'
Ah! Such a beautiful rendition of our National Anthem!
LeAnn Rimes lent her exquisite voice to the NCAA men's championship game on Monday night to kick off the match-up between Butler and UConn.
After all the March Madness, UConn emerged as the winner of the tournament by beating Butler 53-41.
Critics are calling this game the WORST final ever played in the tournament's history, but may we remind all those die hard sports fans out there…it's a game, not a ballet.
Sure, it would be nice if every basketball went in the hoop every time with awe inspiring grace and precision, but guess what? It's not scripted and anything can happen! Isn't that why we watch sports!?
Good game, guys! You played your hearts out and that's what matters. In the end, this was YOUR game and everyone else was just a spectator. Don't let any haters ruin your success!
Wow! Now this is a BIG win!
The University of Connecticut is feeling rather low this morning as their women's basketball team's epic winning streak was finally broken by the team from Stanford.
Stanford beat the Huskies last night, 71-59, bringing their 90 game winning streak to an end. That's the longest winning streak in NCAA Division I basketball history!
But what's most important is good sportsmanship, which the UConn team definitely showed, even with a loss. The team's coach, Geno Auriemma, spoke to the press after the game and said:
"You’ve got to have good players, you’ve got to get lucky, and all your best players have to play great every night, and we didn’t get that tonight. And … the other team has to have something to do with it. … They made us play bad, and they played well, so they deserve to win."
And you know what? Both teams are winners to us! You don't win 90 games in a row without being a force to be reckoned with! Everyone should be very proud of themselves!
